    Hello. Am I able to attach Disney gift cards to my account before I purchase tickets and hotel?

    Hi there, Toni! Welcome to the wonderful world of planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and allowing us to help you plan your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Disney Gift Cards are the perfect gift for any fan of Walt Disney World Resort! Not only can you use them at any Disney-owned location but you can also use them to purchase your accommodations and tickets during your stay! This is one of the main reasons my family and I often ask for Disney Gift Cards for just about any holiday. We love how wonderfully versatile they are and love contributing to our stays! 

    While you cannot attach a Disney Gift Card to your My Disney Experience account, you can use them as a payment option when you begin the checkout process for your reservation. Keep in mind, when purchasing a vacation package or room-only reservation, you will often only pay a deposit initially. Depending on your reservation type, you will then be given a due date for the remainder of your balance. This means you can use your Disney Gift Cards both for the deposit and to pay the remainder of your balance along the way. 

    I do recommend consolidating your Disney Gift Cards prior to making a large purchase, though. This can be done through the Disney Gift Card website. All you will need to do is log into your Disney account and upload all of your Disney Gift Cards. From there, you will be able to manage the balance of each card and elect to transfer multiple balances onto a single card. Again, this is a great option if you plan on making larger purchases such as buying theme park tickets or booking your resort reservation! 

    Once you arrive for your vacation, you may use your Disney Gift Cards to make Mobile Food and Beverage purchases through the My Disney Experience account! All you will need to do is input your Disney Gift Card information on the checkout page and you will be good to go with your order!

    I hope you and your family have a practically perfect vacation at Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
