    We will be staying in a time share off property but are purchasing Magic bands. Am I able to load gift cards on to my children's bands for purchases?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Paula!

    MagicBands are such a fantastic way to add convenience to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I love being able to combine my theme park admission tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account all into my comfy bracelet that shows my Disney Side at the same time. Plus, my husband no longer has to be the "keeper of the cards" as every member of our family can wear their own tickets. While Guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can use their MagicBand to make room charges, MagicBands unfortunately cannot currently be used for any gift card charging.

    Gift cards are a great way to help your children manage their souvinEAR money during your trip and I have a few suggestions for helping your kids keep track of them. The Disney Parks Blog recently announced this year's exclusive wearable Gift Card for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. If you are traveling to Walt Disney Word during the Festival and can pick one up, it would work well to help your little ones manage their card. I have also found lanyards in the gift shops with a card holder on them that would allow your little Mouskeeters to keep their gift cards right around their neck.

    If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
