    How do I add a Disney Gift Card as a payment method on my My Disney Experience app?

    Welcome to planDisney, Bryan!

    It is a pleasure to answer your question and help you navigate the My Disney Experience mobile app. Using convenient technology helps us save time and support social distancing efforts to promote the health and safety of all.

    Since the reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort, Guests have been encouraged to use cashless transactions during their visit. I am happy to share that you can pay for meals with a Disney Gift Card or a Disney Gift Card e-Gift while using Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. Access the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device and tap the plus sign located at the bottom of the screen. Select Order Food, choose an available arrival window at one of the participating locations, and proceed with building your order. After selecting items from the menu, tap View My Order, and if you are ready to place it tap Review Order Summary. Scroll down to confirm your order and select Continue to Checkout where you will be able to select a Disney Gift Card as a payment method. Tap the plus sign right next to Add a Card, select Disney Gift Card, enter the 16-digit card number, tap Save and finalize your purchase.

    You will have to provide a card number each time you place an order because the app will not save that information. Please note that only one Disney Gift Card can be applied per order, but you can use it in combination with another credit or debit card to complete your purchase – this is the perfect opportunity to use those gift cards sitting at home holding a small remaining balance.

    I hope this helps you place delicious orders, Bryan. Come back to visit us real soon if you have additional questions, and keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for news and updates.

    Best magical wishes,
