    I am visiting with 2 teenagers- am I able to apply Disney gift cards to their magic bands?

    Hi Nora,
    Thanks for submitting your question to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm really so glad you stopped by to join us.

    I think Disney Gift Cards are one of the greatest things ever invented to keep both me and my kids on budget when we're visiting the Walt Disney World Resort.  Unfortunately, you cannot link a gift card to a MagicBand for charging privileges.  I do wish this feature was available for my own kids but currently, we can't do that. 

    If you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort, you can set an individual limit on a MagicBand for charging, which my fellow Moms Panelist Lauren does with her son as you can see here.  The charges from the individual bands may then be paid for prior to checkout using a Disney Gift Card.

    Nora, wishing you a fantastic upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! Please come back and see us if you have any additional planning questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
