    I bought a physical gift card for my friend going to Disney world but I won’t be able to give it to her before her trip. Can I send the balance to her electronically?

    Samantha! I don't even know a Samantha, but I guess I do now! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney; some things are worth melting for, like friendships that support magical adventures at the Walt Disney World Resort, and your friend is lucky to have a friend like you who has gifted her with a Disney Gift Card for her upcoming trip!

    While there isn't a way to directly transfer the balance of the physical Disney Gift Card you purchased electronically to someone else, I do have a few suggestions on ways to ensure your friend has access to the value to use on her trip! Let's explore them!

    Option 1: Send your friend the gift card numbers and have her store them as a note on her phone. While she is in the parks, she can utilize the My Disney Experience mobile app to place Mobile Food & Beverage Orders or shop in assorted gift shops on property using Merchandise Mobile Checkout to pay by entering the gift card information at check-out. She will not need to have the physical card, just the numbers to use it!

    Option 2: If your friend has another Disney Gift Card, she can combine multiple gift cards together online, up to a value of $1000. To do this, she will just need the gift card numbers as well, and once she has uploaded the gift card to her account, she can move the value from this gift card to another one that she has physical access to!

    I hope that helps, Samantha, and that your friend finds the perfect way to spend her gift card during her visit!
