    How do I add a gift card as a payment method in the app?

    Hi there, Amanda! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question.

    Everyone who knows me knows that my favorite gift for any occasion is a Disney Gift Card! I love using my "magic money" for snacks, cocktails and merchandise at the Disney theme parks and Resorts. When I have Disney Gift Cards to spend, I don't feel guilty purchasing the top shelf margarita from the EPCOT Mexico Pavilion, that Loungefly backpack I've been eyeing, or the biggest ice cream sundae I can find. I'm thrilled to help you figure out how to use your Disney Gift Cards for extra magic at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    To add a Disney Gift Card as a payment method for mobile food orders and mobile checkout on the My Disney Experience app, build and complete your order, and once you get to the "Order Summary" page, click "Use a Different Payment Method" at the bottom of the screen. Then, under "Payment Methods," click "Add a Card" under Disney Gift Cards. Enter the gift card number, and you're all set!

    If your gift card is a Disney eGift Card, you can add the card to your smartphone's digital wallet for safekeeping and easy use. Then, any time you need to use it, just tap the card in your digital wallet for the Cast Member to scan the barcode on your phone. It's super easy and convenient! Happy shopping, my friend!

    Amanda, I hope this was helpful, and I hope you stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
