    Hi, my daughter is going to DisneyCA with her school class. Can I load up a Disney gift card in the Disneyland App for her to pre-pay for food?

    Hello again, Sheila! 
    Welcome back and thanks for bringing another question to planDisney! 
    It sounds like you’re already familiar with my top tip for sticking to a budget at the Disneyland Resort. Disney Gift Cards! Purchasing a Disney Gift Card for your daughter’s class trip to “The Happiest Place on Earth!” is a great idea! She can use it to buy merchandise and place Mobile Food and Beverage Orders. Unfortunately, there’s no way to store the Gift Card on her Disneyland App. She will have to enter the numbers each time she places an order or makes a purchase. My friend and fellow panelist, Shantel H., shared a great tip! She saves the Disney Gift Card barcode number in the notes section of her mobile phone. That way each time she’s ready to use it, she can simply copy and paste the Gift Card number! 
    I recommend purchasing a digital Disney Gift Card for your daughter then registering it online at DisneyGiftCard.com so that you can track the balance and reload it if necessary. Also, the balance will be protected as you can report the card missing if it is lost or stolen.  
    I hope you found this information to be helpful! Please continue to keep bringing us your vacation planning questions. We love to see you at planDisney again and again!
