    Can I use my disney gift card for dining at Epcot restaurants?

    Hello, bonjour, jambo, ciao, Rosemary!

    As you traverse through EPCOT, especially in the World Showcase, you'll hear many of these delightful greetings. And we are very happy to welcome you here at planDisney as well. I'd love to help you with your question about using Disney Gift Cards at the Most Magical Place on Earth.   

    You're really going to like this news, Rosemary: Disney Gift Cards can be used almost anywhere on Walt Disney World Resort property, including EPCOT's several restaurants and global marketplaces/outdoor kitchens. The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival has just begun, and it's my favorite time of year to use the Disney Gift Cards that I collect throughout the year. Of course, you may use Disney Gift Cards at the table-service and quick-service restaurants around the theme park, too. 

    Keep in mind that there are a few places on property that don't accept Disney Gift Cards. For example, you can't use them at third-party retailers at Disney Springs. However, there are rarely times that a Cast Member can't accept your Disney Gift Cards while at EPCOT. 

    So, what I love the most about EPCOT's year-round festivals is that you can also purchase a wristlet with a Disney Gift Card attached that is themed specifically for the current festival. It's a great way to get wear a cute souvenir, and you'll never lose the pre-loaded money that's on it. This type of gift card can only be used for dining, while standard Disney Gift Cards may be used anywhere, including in gift shops or even at shopdisney.com once you've returned home.

    AN EXTRA GEM: When using a physical Disney Gift Card, just hand it over to your waiter at a table-service restaurant or swipe it at a quick-service location. But did you know that you can use it inside your My Disney Experience app, too? When Mobile Ordering, select "Use a Different Payment Method," select "Add a Card" and "Disney Gift Card." Voila! 

    Rosemary, if you have any other questions about your upcoming vacation, please give us a holler here at planDisney. We're all ears! 

    Magic always,
