Wristband gift cards

Does anyone know if I can get the gift cards that attach to your wrist online? We used them during the F&W festival last year and they were great. I would like to get one before we go for budgeting reasons.

TIA

You can only get these at Epcot during the food & wine festival.

If you have one from last year, you can load it and re-use it.

Where in EPCOT do they sell them?

After you get them can you use they be used anytime and where do you reload them?

Thanks...sorry for all the questions.

According to Cheshire Figment, you can buy them at the ticket windows and will call at the water parks.

You can get the F&WF wrist band gift cards at various locations in Epcot during the Food & Wine Festival, Oct 1 through Nov 14:
The Festival Welcome Center (the old Wonders of Life Pavilion) in Future World. This is back near the Universe of Energy and Test Track.
and several Festival Shops along the World Showcase Promenade.

They can be used anytime and anywhere that accepts Disney gift cards as payment. You can reload them at any cash register stand in the parks or guest services I would think. I don't know if you can reload them in the resorts. I know you can't reload them online.

somehow i completely missed this entire...which is shocking in its own right.

Though we did not go to WDW during food and wine last year due to our newborn...which is the first time we weren't there during that period since 1999 - so i guess i'm out of the loop.

does anybody have a link or a description of these bands so i can take a look? It sounds like something that was made for our family to use

now i'm hungry (or thirsty...champagne stand watch out)

The Disney Food Blog has a picture of the card.

Unfortunately they do not have a picture of the wristband. Last year they were spiral-type flexible plastic wristbands.

Here's the 2008 wristband. It is sold as a card that you can separate and use as a wrist band.

The Will-Call Window (and I'm sure the rest of them probably, too) at Epcot sells them regardless of whether it is Food & Wine festival or not.

They had them on display when we stopped there to upgrade my mom's ticket over Labor Day weekend.

So, you can get these anytime? We are going in March. I would love to get these for the kids and put some money on for them so they could get their own snacks.

They have Disney gift cards but did they have the Food & Wine Festival image gift card that has the flexible wrist band?

Yes. The CM in the next window over was bored and was playing with the bracelet on the one in her window, absentmindedly stretching it over her hand and letting it snap back.

I am sure they have overflow stock from year to year, and keep them there to sell off as they can through the rest of the year.

LynnTH, I wrote Disney about the 'wrist' style gift card availability and this is their response:

Quote:
Thank you for contacting us with your inquiry. Mini Disney Gift Cards, including wrist band, are available for purchase throughout the year at the Walt Disney World Resort Water Parks, including Disney's Blizzard
Beach and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon. The mini Disney Gift Cards are not
available at other locations, with the exception of the Epcot Food &
Wine Festival.

Please let us know if we may be of any additional assistance.

Sincerely,

Disney Gift Card Guest Service
