    Can you use a debit card for meals at WDW and the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival Country food booths? Thank you.

    Hi there, Anita! Welcome to planDisney, the Most Magical Place on the Internet. Thank you so much for bringing us your question!

    I'm delighted to tell you that you're more than welcome to use your debit card for most purchases throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival booths. As long as your debit card is associated with a major bank like Mastercard or Visa, you definitely shouldn't run into any trouble!

    Anita, if I may offer some advice, I would suggest that you purchase a Disney Gift Card in advance of your trip. This way, you will avoid overspending at the festival booths! What I like to do is get a Disney Gift Card before each one of the EPCOT festivals and load it with a set amount of money. Then, I grab a festival passport to keep track of all the goodies I would really like to try that year!

    You can purchase Disney Gift Cards through shopDisney or directly at the Walt Disney World Resort. My favorite designs are the ones that Disney creates specifically for the EPCOT festivals! These always come in the form of a bracelet so you can wear them around the World Showcase without having to take out your wallet every time you need to pay for your food or drinks.

    If you have any other questions at all, you know just where to find us! We're always available and more than happy to help, Anita. Have a magical week!

    Warm hugs,

    Ana Paula
