    Can we add gift cards to the app so we can pay for Genie+ and pay for our mobile food orders? Also will we be able to use a gift card to pay for the Christmas party when tickets go on sale?

    Hi there, Barbara, and welcome to planDisney!

    A Disney Gift Card is practically perfect to use almost everywhere and for almost anything at Walt Disney World Resort--and beyond! In fact, it is my favorite method of payment during visits. I have great news for you ahead, Barbara. 

    Although you can't save your Disney Gift Card in your My Disney Experience App like you can with your credit and debit card, you can make purchases in the app with it. This includes super convenient services like Disney Genie+, Mobile Ordering, and Merchandise Mobile Checkout.

    After making your selections to purchase, it will, by default, choose your saved credit or debit card. But you can scroll down and select "Use a Different Payment Method." Find"Disney Gift Card or Disney Rewards Redemption Card, then add your Disney Gift Card's information.

    Yes, this process must be repeated when you place your next purchase, but Hakuna Matata! I like to take a screenshot or take a photo of my Disney Gift Card and place it in my Favorites photo album for easy access. You can also copy and paste the information from an app or a texted message to yourself. That will save you from typing the information out every single time.

    AN EXTRA GEM: Even better news! You can definitely purchase your Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party special event tickets with a Disney Gift Card. Once those tickets go on sale and when you make your online purchase, simply look for payment methods and select the Disney Gift Card option. 

    I hope that this helps, Barbara. Please revisit us here at planDisney if you need help planning your upcoming vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth. See you real soon!

    Magic always,
