    Can I use a Disney gift card to pay at storytellers cafe?

    Hi there, Vanessa! We are so happy you found your way to planDisney. We absolutely love helping fellow Guests find a little extra magic in their vacations to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    You have found one of my favorite spots for a cozy meal outside of the park hustle and bustle. Storytellers Cafe is not only delicious, but offers sweeping ceilings and Craftsman-style architecture that is the signature of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. The space is somehow both grand and welcoming and definitely takes your breath away! I have some great news for you - YES! You can use your Disney Gift Card to pay for your meal at Storytellers Cafe. In fact, you can use it at most of the dining and merchandise locations throughout the Disneyland Resort! When it doubt, just ask a Cast Member ahead of your purchase to be sure it is accepted. 

    Once you are fed, rested, relaxed, and ready to head back into the parks, the entrance from Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will pop you out right in the middle of Downtown Disney District. Personally, I always save a little room for dessert. My tried and true trick when dining outside of the parks is to place a mobile order directly from the Disneyland app for something sweet at Marceline's Confectionary just as I am finishing up my meal. I love strolling over to this cute spot, maybe stopping into WonderGround Gallery for some Disney-inspired artwork or World of Disney® for some keepsake souvenirs, and picking up my sweet of choice. For me, it's usually the Mickey Churro Marshmallow. Trust me, it's not just for kids! Once you arrive, just tap the "I'm Here" button in the app and your order will be ready faster than you can say Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! 

    Vanessa, I hope this sets your magic carpet on course! Be sure to take a few minutes once you settle into your meal to soak it all in. That's usually when I find the most pixie-dusted moments. If you have any more questions, we are always here for you at planDisney.

    Magic awaits!
