    Eric from IL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I bought a Disney gift card from Sam's to use for our upcoming trip. Can I store that gift card in the My Disney Experience app? I won't have a physical card to use, so I'd like to sync it w/ WDW app if possible.

    Welcome to planDisney, Eric, we thank you for consulting us and for this excellent question!

    I too have discovered the great possibilities of using the Disney Gift Card for any purchases while on shopDisney and during my Disney vacations. On my current trip, I have used my gift cards either in my mobile device digital wallet or in my Payment Method in the My Disney Experience App. The great thing about storing the Disney Gift Card in the My Disney Experience App, is that the app has the capability of storing up to six payment methods, isn't that great?!

    Here is how to add a Payment Method to the My Disney Experience App:
    1. Sign in and on the Home Page please select the three stacked lines on the bottom right.
    2. From your Welcome Eric page, please select My Profile and then choose Payment Method to enter your information.

    You can keep track of your balance from the receipts received for any Walt Disney World Resort dining, or purchase locations, or you can track your balance and even add more funds directly through Disney Gift Card.


    By adding a Payment Method to the My Disney Experience App you will enjoy the convenience of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering during your visit and adding any other vacation essential purchases such as the Disney Genie+ service which will save you time waiting in Lightning Lane entrances.

    Please ensure you make your Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations using valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park admission in advance of your visit as this is the method of visiting the theme parks at this time.

    Using the My Disney Experience App create a Disney Magic Mobile pass to access your Walt Disney World Resort theme park admission from your mobile device's digital wallet with Disney MagicMobile Service - this way you use your mobile device to enter the theme parks and attractions - I was even able to access my theme park admission by using my Apple Watch and it was awesome as it connected to the Disney PhotoPass and many other activity touchpoints such as when I was designing a Test Track virtual concept car - "SIM Car" at the Chevrolet Design Center before enjoying my test and speed ride!

    I hope this information helps you out, Eric and I wish you a most magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort, thank you kindly!
