    When using the mobile order food for Quick Service locations at WDW, can it be linked to your magic band? Or can you use a Disney Gift Card for the mobile order? I have been saving gift cards mainly for food since we will not be on a dining plan. Thank you

    Hi Katherine,
    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    I love seeing families planning in advance for their Walt Disney World Resort vacations-it seems like you're ready for a fantastic time!

    Disney Gift Cards are a great way to budget for your trip prior to arrival. I like to buy mine at my local warehouse club at a discount.  I buy a few here and there to spread out the cost of my trip so I can fit it into my everyday budget. It works wonderfully! Looks like the secret is out and that you've already taken advantage of this planning strategy.

    Unfortunately, you can't link a Disney Gift Card to a MagicBand, and you also can't use Disney Gift Cards for Mobile Food and Beverage Orders.  But enough with negativity! What you CAN do is use your gift cards to pay for the balance of your room account at the front desk of your resort. I have done this dozens of times with great success.  I will often go down to the desk early before my party is ready to leave for the day or stay a little behind when we return from our daily outings to pay the balance on our room using Disney Gift Cards.

    Katherine, I hope you have your Advance Dining Reservation date already on your calendar and are ready to make your FastPass+ selections this spring. Please come back and visit us again with any additional planning questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
