    Am I able to use my Disney gift cards to pay for dining during 2021

    Hi there, Leslie! Welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you’ll be headed to Walt Disney World in just one month. You must be so excited! It is an amazing time to visit, with the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival in full bloom and so many returning to the magic!

    Disney Gift Cards are an incredible way to enjoy freedom and flexibility on your next Walt Disney World vacation! While Disney Dining Plans are not currently available since the Disney Parks phased reopening, you can certainly pay for any meals and snacks with your Disney Gift Cards while on vacation! In fact, many people pre-load funds onto their Disney Gift Cards before their vacation so they can travel free of cash or credit cards and can budget what they will spend in advance! Gift cards can be purchased in sums between $5-$1,000 and can be used for most purchases while on vacation! 

    Leslie, did you know that you can use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to place Mobile Orders in advance and Mobile Dine Walk-Up for many restaurants! Make sure you have the latest version of the app uploaded onto your mobile device before you travel. Also, I recommend that you check out the Experience Updates pages for all the latest information on the availability of experiences, including available restaurants! Dining Reservations, where available, can be made right on the Disney World website.

    Safe travels, and please do not hesitate to come back and see us again soon!
