    How do I apply my gift card amount to my hotel reservation?

    Hi there, Debbie! Greetings from everyone here at planDisney! We appreciate you taking the time to stop back by and asking another excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation question! 

    Disney Gift Cards are the perfect gift for any major Disney fan! They are so incredibly versatile and can be used at any Disney-owned location during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Personally, I use Disney Gift Cards as a way of creating a pre-chosen budget and actually sticking with it during my own family vacations. This lets me put less energy into managing money during our trips while still sticking to a budget!

    You can also use Disney Gift Cards to purchase theme park tickets or pay towards your Disney Resort hotel reservation! Using a Disney Gift Card is very similar to using any other card form of payment and can be done either online or over the phone. If you would like to pay towards your balance online, you may do so by logging into your My Disney Experience account. From there, you will need to navigate to the “My Reservations” page and find your Disney Resort hotel reservation. You should then see an option to make a payment towards your balance using a form of card payment. If you would prefer, you can also make a payment over the phone by calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations phone line. All you will need to do is have your Disney Gift Card ready so you can give the information to the Cast Member assisting you. 

    If you would like to make a payment towards your room balance during your vacation, you may also use Disney Gift Cards to do so! In the event that I am using multiple gift cards to make payments on my balance, I prefer to stop by the front desk of my Disney Resort hotel and make a payment in person. This is a convenient option if you intend on using your MagicBand or other options to charge purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room during your stay! 

    I hope you have a magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to let us know if we can assist with planning in any other way!
