    Can you add a Disney gift card as the payment method in the My Disney Experience app? I am hoping to use gift cards for mobile order purchases on our upcoming trip to Disney World.

    Hey, Abby! It looks like you have discovered a big Walt Disney World Resort dining secret! The Mobile Order feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app is an absolute time-saver. I appreciated it so much while on an "end of school" celebration trip with my daughters this past Memorial Day weekend. Instead of standing in line, waiting on that cold, delicious Dole Whip Float, we were able to step right up to the pickup counter and quickly enjoy that delicious tropical treat. Oh, how I could go for one of those right now in this lingering fall heat!

    When using Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering service, guests are able to pay for their order with credit or debit cards. If they are a Disney Resort Hotel guest with a Disney Dining Plan linked to their account, then those meal and snack entitlements can also be used to pay for their mobile order. At this time, Disney Gift Cards cannot be applied to mobile orders. I am hopeful that one day this does happen, though! Maybe we should chat with Fairy Godmother to see if she can use her magic band and make it so with a "bibbidi bobbidi boo!" Do keep an eye on this service's web page and on the Disney Parks Blog for any updates!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question and please let us know if you have any others as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
