    Hello! Am I able to use a Disney Gift Card for the down payment on an annual pass? If so, how do I do it? Thank you!

    Welcome to planDisney, Carolina! I'm happy to answer your question today.

    It's so exciting to be an Annual Passholder at the Walt Disney World Resort! You often get access to special offers and discounts, and you get to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth many times throughout the year. And seeing as though there are a lot of experiences to look forward to in 2024, most notably Tiana's Bayou Adventure in Magic Kingdom Park, it's quite an exciting time to be an Annual Passholder.

    To take advantage of monthly payments, you must provide valid proof of Florida residency as only Florida residents have access to this benefit. At this time, you can sign up online or in person. The Cast Member I spoke with let me know that you should be able to make your down payment with a Disney Gift Card, however, if that option is not showing up when you are signing up online, you likely have to do this in person at one of the Guest Relations locations outside of the theme parks or at the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. If it turns out that you are unable to do this in person, don't fret, as you can use your Disney Gift Card for many other purchases around the resort. Just note that you cannot use a gift card to make your monthly payments.

    Carolina, I see that you are visiting the resort soon, and what an amazing time to visit! Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park and the latest after-hours offering, Disney Jollywood Nights at Disney's Hollywood Studios, have begun! My friends LeAndra and Tracie both recently experienced the opening night of Disney Jollywood Nights and I'm sure they would be more than happy to answer your burning questions about this fun-filled new event. Also, don't forget to check out the planDisney Guides to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and Disney Jollywood Nights as they are full of helpful tips!

    If you have any other questions, please reach out again. I wish you a truly magical year of Disney joy with your new annual pass!

    It’s that time of year when the world falls in love,
