    Am I able to Purchase a Disney Gift Card at the Swan or Dolphin Hotel, and charge it to my room? I would like not to carry much on our trip there, and would prefer to just purchase my kids' gift cards when we arrive for them to use at their leisure.

    Hiya, Tara! I'm so glad you found the second star to the right and followed it straight on to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you're making plans to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth in just about a week! There's so much to see and do during The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration. You won't want to miss the Beacons of Magic and the celebratory sweets to help ring in the occasion! Not only that, but the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full bloom by the time you arrive. Make sure to spend some time sampling the outdoor kitchens and exploring the character topiaries (my favorite is Kermit!). 

    You can't go wrong when staying at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel or the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel! There are so many benefits when staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Did you know that resort Guests can magically enter the parks 30 minutes prior to official park opening? It's true! Not only that, but the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels are also offered Extended Evening Theme Park Hours! This is a great way to maximize the fun during your Walt Disney World vacation.

    Tara, I know you're wondering if you're able to purchase a Disney Gift Card at a gift shop and charge it to your room. Unfortunately, this isn't an available option. However, I have two ideas that will be just right for you! First, if you have an iPhone, you may want to purchase a Disney Gift Card and use Apple Pay. This way, all you will need to have with you is your phone to complete your purchase! Alternately, you may want to purchase a Disney Gift Card prior to your trip so you have only the essentials when you arrive.

    While you're putting the finishing touches on your vacation, make sure that you've made your Theme Park Reservations using the Disney Park Pass system! This is the best way to reserve the parks you wish to visit on each day of your trip. And take some time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app! A little like a magic wand, you'll be able to check wait times for attractions, view park maps, and mobile order food. I love knowing my meals and snacks will be ready for me before I ever feel a rumbly in my tumbly!

    I hope I was able to help you with your question today, Tara! If anything else pops up, please visit us again. Remember - you've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
