    My daughter is going on her Senior class trip next month. For Mobile Ordering, can she connect a gift card to her account or does it have to connect a credit card. If it’s only a card, can she use my credit card, or does it have to have her name on it?

    Welcome to planDisney, Madeline! Thanks so much for asking this great question! How fun that your daughter gets to take a senior class trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth

    I have a daughter that's a senior too! It's so nice that yours can go to Walt Disney World Resort without you and I can definitely help you feel at ease about making sure she can order food. With Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering, she can use either a Disney gift card or a credit card. When she is ready to place a mobile order, she should open the My Disney Experience app on her mobile device. Next, she should tap the plus sign at the bottom of the screen, select "Order Food" and choose an arrival window at her preferred dining location. After adding items to her order, she will be able to use a gift card as a method of payment. Please keep in mind that the app doesn't store the gift card information, so she will have to enter this information every time she places a new order. You can connect your credit card to her account if you prefer, and it's ok if you are not with her when she makes these purchases. 

    Another feature I love to use with the My Disney Experience Mobile app is the ability to use Mobile Express checkout when shopping for souvenirs at select locations at select theme parks and World of Disney at Disney Springs. With your permission, of course, your daughter can shop for souvenirs such as Minnie Mouse ears, a sweatshirt, or a water bottle, scan the items, and show a code at the exit of the store as proof of purchase. The purchase is charged to the credit card saved on her account, just as it is with Mobile Food Ordering. To do this, she can tap the plus sign in the app and select "Shop in Store." The locations that use this feature will appear and she can select the store that she is shopping in if it is listed. This is such a great, time-saving feature!

    I wish her the best as she graduates! Time really flies and I know you must be so proud! I'm sending you virtual hugs and hoping you have lots of tissues as you celebrate! Please visit us again at planDisney if we can help you plan future Disney vacations!
