    I relating to this question.... “When i check in, can i link a Disney gift card to my account to pay for charges i put on my reservation souvenirs/dinning etc?“ If I’m staying at different resorts, will the gift card balance transfer with me?

    Hello Stacy!

    You arrive in just a few days! Are you too excited to sleep already?  I know I would be.  I can hardly contain my excitement weeks before a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort.  I hope you have a wonderful time making memories that will last to infinity and beyond.   It's my pleasure to help answer your question today.

    Disney Gift Cards are some of my favorite things to pack when visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth.  In fact I purchase one during most of my grocery shopping trips and store them away like a 'Disney savings plan' for my vacations.    Stacy, you won't be able to link a Disney Gift Card to your account when you check into a Disney Resort hotel, but you will be able to use your Disney Gift Cards to pay down the balance on your accounts.   You will need to link a credit card to your room account  which will allow you to make purchases using your MagicBand throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.   Each night you can stop by the front desk and pay down your balance using your Disney Gift Cards before the balance is charged to your credit card.   Keep in mind they will charge the full balance to your credit card once you reach a certain spending limit, or a few days before your trip is over, so stopping by each night to pay the balance will help you avoid those charges.  Stacy if you stay at two different Disney Resort hotels you will do the same at the second Resort.   Attach a credit card to the account in order to charge to your MagicBand and then pay the balance each night using your Disney Gift Cards.  

    I hope this has helped to answer your inquiry.  If you think of anything else we can answer for you before you depart on your magical adventure, please let us know.  Lending a helping hand to fellow Guests is what we enjoy most.
