    If I get a digital gift card can I use it at Disneyland or DCA from my app? If not can the balance be transferred to a physical card once I am in California?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Tamara!

    You're as welcome as can be here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for your great questions, and I can't wait for your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. A Disney Gift Card is the gift that keeps on giving!

    I love that Disney Gift Cards are accepted at most shopping and dining locations in the Disneyland Resort theme parks and hotels. You shouldn't have any problem using your digital gift card just like a regular gift card at all of these same locations. One of my favorite features of Disney Gift Cards is the ability to transfer balances between cards on my online Disney Gift Card account. For example, this Christmas I was given a Disney Gift Card, but I have a favorite physical card I always use. I was able to transfer the balance of my new card to my favorite card easily online. This is also a great place to check your balance if you are unsure.

    Make sure before you arrive, you also download the official Disneyland app. This will be your number one tool in the parks to view park maps, see Character locations, and keep your eye on attraction wait times. I love that you can also save time in select Quick Service food locations with the new mobile order feature of the app.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a Fantasmic day!
