    Can i use a disney gift card to pay for food at food stands throughout the park, such as popcorn??


    Absolutely, you can use a Disney gift card to purchase food, snacks, or souvenirs in the parks at Walt Disney World. Even at stands.

    Just a few weeks ago I did EXACTLY that. I mean, Cheeseburger Spring Rolls? Like I am going to just pass by those and not try them. Hardly! Of course, popcorn, a personal favorite as well, is another example of where you can use your Disney gift card.

    BONUS TIP #1
    Did you know that there is always a popcorn cart just as you enter the Magic Kingdom? When you enter the park, it is like you are entering a movie, complete with the "opening credits" on the windows of Main Street, U.S.A. reminding us of the people who created this amazing adventure. When you enter a movie theater, what better reminder of where you are than that intoxicating aroma of freshly popped popcorn?

    BONUS TIP #2
    As it happens, Disney will accept most common varieties of gift cards, even ones not from Disney. I use them frequently.

    BONUS TIP #3
    Gift cards are a great item for kids to list on birthday or Christmas wish lists. My teenagers have a hard time finding gift idea suggestions for relatives that are reasonably priced, so this gives the gift buyers a lot of flexibility. And my teens get some 'mad money' for souvenirs and treats!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
