    Can I put my Disney gift cards into my magic band? With so much mobile ordering ,that seems like it would be easiest and contactless

    Welcome back to planDisney, Kelly!

    I cannot imagine visiting the Walt Disney World Resort without my MagicBands! These all-in-one devices allow Guests to travel lighter and offer convenient access to plans and vacation options linked to My Disney Experience. They become even more special when you stay at a Disney Resort hotel because they allow you to unlock the door of your Guest room and even charge food and merchandise purchases to your room during your stay.

    Although you cannot directly link Disney Gift Cards to your MagicBand, you can use them to pay for food and beverages using the Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering feature in the My Disney Experience mobile app. After you have placed your order, you can use a Disney Gift Card as a method of payment. For all other purchases, I suggest using your MagicBand and then stopping by Front Desk regularly to check your room folio and pay for the charges using your Disney Gift Card.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Kelly. Please, stop by once again real soon if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help!

    Best magical wishes,
