    is there a way to put a gift card in my disney experience and pay with my magic band with a pin instead of using a credit card ?

    Hi Marc!

    It looks like you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation right around the corner and I'm happy to help you with your final plans. MagicBands are a fantastic addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! They make it so easy to access your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account. Plus, Disney Resort hotel Guests can use their MagicBands as their room keys and to make purchases throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

    Your MagicBands are linked to your Disney Resort hotel room through your My Disney Experience account. Credit cards are not directly linked to MagicBands. When a Disney Resort hotel Guest makes purchases using their MagicBand, those purchases are charged to their hotel room folio and their folio balance will later be charged to your credit card. So, unfortunately, there is no way to link a Disney Gift Card to your MagicBand. However, you can use Disney Gift Cards to pay the balance of your folio by visiting the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel. I recommend that you pay your balance using Disney Gift Cards throughout your vacation to avoid charges on your credit card.

    Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as you countdown the final sleeps until your magical vacation! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
