    My daughters each have e gift gards. Can they get plastic ones so that they will travel better in their purse?

    Welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth!

    Thank you for sending your first question our way. It is a pleasure to help you while planning your next Walt Disney World Resort adventure.

    My family loves Disney Gift Cards! I believe they are a great way to save Disney money and budget accordingly before visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth. Since I live abroad, we always purchase e-gift cards and then transfer their balances to physical cards upon arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    The first thing you need to do is visit Disney Gift Cards to create an account and select My Cards to add your e-gift cards to this account. Your next step will be to purchase physical Disney Gift Cards. You can do so online before your visit at shopDisney.com, or upon arrival at retail and merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. You will then add the physical cards to the Disney Gift Card account online and transfer balances from the e-gift cards. I usually have at least two physical Disney Gift Cards linked to my account, so that if I end up losing the one I have with me while visiting the parks, I can quickly sign in to my account and transfer balances to a card that I know is somewhere safe. A great idea while visiting is keeping an extra Disney Gift Card in the safe at the hotel, so if anything happens you can immediately transfer your balance to that card.

    planDisney tip: Disney Gift Cards can now be used as a method of payment while using Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering at the Walt Disney World Resort. Be sure to download the latest version of the My Disney Experience app to your mobile device before your visit to enjoy this convenient feature and more!

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Elizabeth! I hope this helps you while planning that you stop by for more tips and advice real soon!

    Best magical wishes,
