    I booked a great deal at POR and got my tickets, FL residents discount. My question is can I purchase Disney gift cards in advance and use them for all our dining and gift purchases or are there exclusions. I would like to pay as much as possible up front.

    Hi, Christy!

    You can certainly use the Disney Gift Card for most of your purchases at Walt Disney World.  There might be a few random food carts/vendors that cannot take the Disney Gift Card, but you will find the vast majority of gift shops and restaurants are happy to accept them. 

    I always buy my Disney Gift Cards ahead of time at my local grocery store.  It is a great way to save for my trip!  I buy each of my kids their own cards, and that is what they have to spend for souvenirs so it keeps everyone on their own budget!

    For more information, check out   It is a very helpful website and will answer any questions you might have.  Enjoy your stay at Port Orleans Riverside!
