Staying at the Swan for the first time next year, does anyone know if I can use Disney Gift cards to pay off my magic band charges?
The Swan and Dolphin aren’t Disney hotels, they’re 3rd party properties. That means that while you do get certain benefit
(like 60 day Fastpasses, buses to the parks, free parking at the parks, and extra magic hours), you won’t receive complementary magic bands. And you won’t be able to use room charging if you do choose to buy them (or bring ones you already have).
Luckily, paying with a Disney gift card is almost as fast and simple as using a band!
