    How do I add Disney Gift Cards to my account to pay for mobile food orders and mobile shopping check out?

    Hi there, Brandy! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question. I love chatting Disney with my pals, pal!

    Don't you just love Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering and Merchandise Mobile Checkout?! It is so easy and convenient and such a time-saver! With the 50th Anniversary Celebration in full swing and so much to shop, taste, do and see, you will definitely want to know how to use those Disney Gift Cards for all of the yummy snacks and must-have merchandise. I love using my Disney Card Gifts for app purchases, so, you have come to the right place, and I'm thrilled to answer your question today!

    While only credit or debit cards can be saved in your My Disney Experience app as payment methods for app purchases, Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries!" You can still use your Disney Gift Cards for app purchases, such as Mobile Ordering and Mobile Checkout! Yay! Once you've completed your order and arrived at the Order Summary/payment page, scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap "Use a Different Payment Method." Then, under Payment Methods, tap "Add a Card," select "Disney Gift Card," and then enter your 16-Digit Card Number. You will have to enter your Gift Card Number for every purchase, so, just be sure to keep your Gift Card handy throughout the day. 

    While you're on the My Disney Experience app, if you've purchased Disney Genie+, don't forget to have some fun with the Disney PhotoPass Lenses! They're so cute and fun, and you can even use some of the Lenses up to 45 days after your last Genie+ use. It's the perfect way to bring some of the magic and fun home with you!

    I hope this was helpful, Brandy, and I hope you have the most magical visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop by any time with any planning questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
