    Hi there. If I buy Canadian Disney gift cards can I used them at Walt Disney world?

    Hi there Sabrena!

    Thank you for sending us your question and welcome back to planDisney! I am so excited for you to experience the magic this year, and I am thrilled to be helping you during your planning process. Disney Gift cards are so helpful when wanting to keep your magical vacation within budget, and I love using them, especially during EPCOT's unique festivals

    Now let's talk about gift cards. You can absolutely purchase Disney Gift Cards and use them in the parks during your visit! There are two ways to purchase them: either online or in stores. If you buy your gift cards in Canada, they will probably be in Canadian dollars, which means they are subject to currency exchange rates. The second way for Canadians to purchase gift cards is online. This option allows you to buy electronic gift cards, which can instead be in US dollars and, therefore, will not be subject to exchange rates. 

    Now, Sabrena, there are a few ways for you to use these gift cards. The first way is, obviously, to bring the physical card with you and to have it scanned at checkout. However, you can also use gift cards for mobile food orders and mobile checkout purchases at select merchandise locations. To make mobile orders, you will be able to add the gift card as a payment option on your My Disney Experience mobile app. To do so, simply go into your mobile app, click on the three lines at the bottom right of your screen, then on "My Profile" and "Payment Method." To make purchases through the mobile checkout service, the process is slightly different. Since you will have to enter the gift card's information, a good tip is to type your gift card's number in your notes app on your smartphone. Then, you will be able to copy-paste your gift card information into the app and avoid typing it out every time! 

    I hope this was helpful, Sabrena, and that you can get back to planning your magical vacation real soon! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, don't hesitate to reach out. We are always happy to help, and your fellow Canadians will be there to answer all your planning questions!

    Have a magical day,
