    Can I use a Disney e-gift card in the Disney parks? I tried to combine it with another Disney (physical) gift card but it would not let me because the gift card balance was too high, so I'm hoping I can use a print out of the e-gift card from my email.

    Welcome back, Lacey! 

    It's always great to see you at planDisney. Thanks for bringing your questions our way. 

    I'm thrilled to hear you're going to be using your Disney eGift Card during your magical vacation. These are redeemable around most locations inside the theme parks and around Walt Disney World Resort. In fact, it's my go-to method of payment in most cases. To be sure about specific locations, you can always ask a friendly Cast Member if Disney eGift Cards are accepted before completing your purchase. But I assure you, more places will accept your eGift Card than not around Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Did you know you can add your eGift Card to your smartphone's digital wallet? I love pulling mine up on my phone and making payments; it makes the process so seamless and convenient because I don't have to dig through my bag and get my wallet out. If you're using an Apple device like I am, adding the card to your digital wallet is simple. You'll want to access the email you received that contains your Disney eGift Card. Then, please scroll to the bottom of the email, and you should select the option to "Add to Apple Wallet."

    If you'd prefer to print yours, that's fine, too! As long as the printout of your Disney eGift Card contains the barcode, a Cast Member will be able to scan it; please do be sure to let the Cast Member know at checkout that you have a Disney Gift Card so they'll be sure to use the scanner instead of the swipe method.

    You can also use your Disney eGift Card when placing mobile food and beverage orders on your My Disney Experience Mobile App. To make this easy, you'll want to copy and paste your eGift Card's number and its EAN in a secure place on your phone —(I use the Notes app on my phone). Then, when placing the mobile order, you'll want to choose the Disney Gift Card option as your payment method. It'll have you type in the numbers in the allotted space. This is where you can head to your Notes app, copy the information, and paste it under the required area. And then, you're done! Yippie! 

    I hope your trip is an enchanting one, Lacey!
