    Am I able to add a Disney Visa Rewards Card or Disney gift card as a method of payment to MDE app? The only selection available is a credit card.

    Welcome to planDisney, Nancy!

    Thanks for sending your question our way. I'm a Disney Rewards Visa Card member too, and I love to use my reward dollars when I'm on vacation. My favorite Disney snacks just taste that much better when I'm getting them for "free." I'm happy to share how I make this happen!

    You are correct that only major credit cards can be stored as payment methods in My Disney Experience. To use a Disney Gift Card or Disney Rewards Redemption Card, on the final payment screen for a mobile purchase, scroll down until you can tap "Use a Different Payment Method." A new screen will appear where you should now have the option to add a Disney Gift Card or Disney Rewards Redemption Card. Click the + sign, input the card information, and you'll be on your way!

    On my trips, I like to redeem gift cards and reward dollars for everything from Individual Lightning Lane Entries to Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. Since I prefer not to reach for my cards each time I make a mobile purchase, I keep a list of card numbers in the Notes application on my iPhone. When it's time to add a card, I copy and paste the numbers into the My Disney Experience payment page.

    Since not all Walt Disney World locations accept mobile orders, when I'm a guest of a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection, I also use a MagicBand or Key to the World Card and charge to my room. The day before I check out, I visit the front desk of the resort to pay down my charges with a Disney Gift Card or Disney Rewards Redemption Card. This is another easy way to use gift cards in the parks and resorts without carrying them around all day.

    Nancy, I hope you find a way to use those hard-earned Disney Rewards Dollars! I noticed you call the Sunshine State home, so don't forget to check the Florida Resident Special Offers page before booking your next adventure. Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and we hope to see you again real soon!
