    I am visiting with my son in June and want to know if there is a way to get a prepaid card that can be used for dining and souvenirs?

    Dear Beth,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question!

    I totally get trying to get everything paid for before you head out on vacation so that you can really enjoy your time with your son. You can actually purchase Disney gift cards in any amount that you choose so that you can stick to your budget and have everything pre-planned so that all you have to do is to show up and enjoy!

    Moms Panel tip - You can link a credit card to your MagicBands, but then when you are actually at the resort, every evening or two you can go down to the resort concierge and use your gift cards to pay off your balance. This way, you can leave the gift cards themselves in your in-room safe and use your MagicBands to pay for all of your purchases in the Parks, which can help to prevent theft and loss of your gift cards.

    Have a magical trip!
