    How do I like a Disney gift card to My Disney experience to pay for things? Or do I just mobile order and then pay with the actual card?

    Hi Kelly!

    Welcome to planDisney.

    I love mobile ordering!  It saves so much time when you can select, customise and order your food in advance and alert the restaurant when you arrive so that they can prepare a fresh order for you when you are ready.  And good news!  You can now pay for your order on the mobile app by using your Disney Gift Card.  Other payment methods are credit/debit card, Disney Rewards Redemption Card, Apple Pay or the Disney Dining Plan (which is currently suspended).

    While you cannot actually link your Disney Gift Card to your MagicBand, you can add it to your Disney Resort hotel room account so when you make charges using your MagicBand you are using the balance from your Disney Gift Card.  I recommend you visit the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel where a Disney Cast Member can set this up for you.

    You can, of course, use your Disney Gift Card at practically every restaurant and merchandise location at all four theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and most locations at Disney Springs, without linking it to your hotel account.  They are really useful as a method of contactless payment.

    During the phased re-opening of Walt Disney World, we may need a little more considered and careful planning, but our vacations to Walt Disney World Resort can still be a magical experience.  Please read this information about Returning to a World of Magic and keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official updates.

    Please come back and ask as many questions as you like!  We are always happy to help you plan your vacation.
