    Can i use a disney gift card to eat at downtown disneyland

    Hello, and welcome to planDisney, Susan, we thank you for your excellent question!

    The world of possibilities opens up with the Disney Gift Card which is currently accepted at the Disney Resorts and Disney Cruise Line, for the purchase of Disney Parks theme park tickets, Disney Dining, at the Disney Stores and shopDisney online, including participating Disney-owned and operated locations at the Downtown Disney District. I recommend asking a Cast Member before considering your purchase or paying for your meal just to be sure because there are many independent venues that will not accept the Disney Gift Card at Downtown Disney District..  

    Susan, you will be able to check your balance and reload your Disney Gift Card easily online through the Disney Gift Card website. Did you know that you can also add the Disney Gift Card (up to six cards) as a form of payment in the Disneyland Mobile App? I find that so convenient, and I never fear losing my physical card that way because all information is securely stored in my app on my Disney account. To add your Disney Gift Card(s) to your app, access the Payment Method via the My Profile section on your Welcome Susan page.

    Speaking of the Disneyland Mobile App, it is so handy in managing plans before and during your visit and with an updated Payment Method, you can enjoy the contactless convenience of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, and Merchandise Mobile Checkout vacation essentials.

    Using the Disneyland Mobile App you can even join walk-up waitlists for participating Disneyland Dining Table-Service Venues for all in your travel party - some of those popular venues are tough to score 60 days ahead, but people cancel sometimes making space for you!

    Save time waiting in lines for attractions that offer the Lightning Lane entrance by purchasing the Disney Genie+ service as soon as you enter a theme park using the Disneyland Mobile App. Plus, when you purchase the Disney Genie+ service you will enjoy unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass service attraction photos including Magic Shots from the day - how great is that?!

    Susan, it was my great pleasure assisting you today, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    Best Disney Dishes!
