    Can I add a Disney gift card to my account

    Hi Rhonda!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney as you make final preparations for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  Before you know it, you'll be walking down Main Street, U.S.A., enjoying a Mickey-shaped snack, and saying "hi" to your favorite characters.  Make sure to say "hiya pal" to Mickey Mouse for me!

    Disney Gift Cards are one of my favorite ways to make purchases in the parks and at my resort.  If you haven't used Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering before, you'll definitely want to take advantage of this service in the parks.  This allows you to place your food order at many Quick-Service dining locations and select a return time.  You get to enjoy more fun in the parks and spend less time waiting in lines - it's a win all around!  From the My Disney Experience Mobile App, you can also purchase Disney Genie+ service, Individual Lightning Lane entrances, and even those must-buy souvenirs using Merchandise Mobile Checkout

    While you can use your gift cards to make all of these purchases in the app, unfortunately you can't save the gift card information to your account the same way you are able to save credit card information.  Each time you make a purchase you will need to manually enter your gift card information.  I like to save my gift card numbers in a notes app on my phone so I can easily cut and paste when I need it.

    Rhonda, did you know you can combine the value of your gift cards so you'll have fewer cards to manage in the parks?  You can do this by visiting the Disney Gift Card website and creating an account.  Then, simply enter the information from each of your gift cards and you will be able to transfer balances between cards.  The maximum value on one gift card is $1000.

    I hope this is helpful as you get ready for your vacation!  Please stop by planDisney to see me or my pals with any other questions you may have in the future!

    See ya real soon,
