    if i use my magic band for purchases through out the day at disney-can i go to the front desk of my disney resort at the end of each day and use gift cards to pay off what i had charged during the day-have a credit

    Hi Katherine,
    Thanks for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I love the convenience that MagicBands provide when I'm staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel...they're my room key, my park ticket, my meal card, my credit card, and they have my FastPass+ selections all stored in one cute little package that I can wear all day long! I'm really pleased to tell you that yes, you sure can use your MagicBand to make purchases and then use Disney Gift Cards to pay your bill at intervals during your trip.  Gift cards help me and my family both spread out the cost of our trip by buying prior to our departure, and then they keep us on budget once we've arrived.  Such a win/win, isn't it?

    Please note that if you choose to not have a credit card on file, your maximum charging amount will be somewhat limited during your stay.

    Did you know that you can combine Disney Gift Cards with smaller values onto one card? The Disney Gift Card website can help you combine those cards to make traveling a bit more convenient.  I did this recently to pay the balance for an upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation and it was so easy!

    Katherine, I hope this puts you at ease before your upcoming trip. Please come by and see us again if you have any additional questions!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
