    I have the Dining and Merchandise offer and the Disney Gift card, can the Disney Gift card be used for food as well or is this just for merchandise?

    Hi there, Helen!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney! October is a wonderful time of year to visit Walt Disney World Resort. The temperatures are generally cooler, and Halloween festivities can usually be found throughout the parks. It is also in the middle of the tastiest festival around, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, which takes place from August 29 through November 23, 2024. There are so many delicious options to choose from!

    I love a good Disney deal, especially when it includes a Disney Gift Card! I recommend reviewing the Terms and Conditions of your promotion, but generally, Disney Gift Cards can be used at most food and merchandise locations within the theme parks. I always appreciate it when friends and family give me Disney Gift Cards for special occasions because it helps me save money when visiting Walt Disney World (or allows me to buy myself an extra treat)!

    Disney Gift Cards can be used for My Disney Experience app purchases once you arrive in the United States. Unlike credit and debit cards, they cannot be stored in the app and need to be entered each time you want to use them to make a purchase. After choosing your items, you will be directed to the Order Summary screen. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select "Use a Different Payment Method." Choose "Disney Gift Card or Disney Rewards Redemption Card," select "Add a Card," and then tap "Disney Gift Card or Disney Dining Card." You can then scan the Disney Gift Card barcode or enter the card's number in the provided space. 

    Helen, enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Please reach out to planDisney again if you have other questions!

    You are the magic!
