    Do the retail shops at Disney Springs accept Disney gift cards? Or do they accept charges to Magic Band that I could later pay off with Disney gift cards?

    Hi Chris! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip is almost here! Before you know it, you will be enjoying a day at Disney Springs. There are SO many shopping, dining, and entertainment options to choose from that it is easy to spend an entire day there!

    You'll be pleased to know that most shops at Disney Springs accept MagicBands that have a valid credit/debit card linked to them as a form of payment, even those not owned by Disney. At the stores that are owned and operated by Disney (such as The Art of Disney, Disney's Days of Christmas, Marketplace Co-Op, Mickey's Pantry, Once Upon a Toy, World of Disney, and more!), you can usually use a Disney gift card to pay there. I suggest asking the Cast Member helping you if a Disney gift card can be used as payment first, then if not go ahead and use your MagicBand, then visit the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel to pay off your balance with the Disney gift cards.

    I hope this helps with your big shopping plans, Chris! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
