    Can Disney gift cards be added to our digital passes to use in the park? If so, how do you do that?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sharon! We're so excited you are here!

    Using Disney Gift Cards is such a fabulous way to budget for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I have to admit; I'm a bit of a shopaholic and certainly can't resist all of the fabulous souvenirs available throughout Walt Disney World. Something just comes over me as soon as I step foot into Emporium in Magic Kingdom, and suddenly I have an arm full of items I certainly don't need but DEFINITELY want! But, I have found that Disney Gift Cards are a great way to rescue my wallet. I now put together a budget before my trip for food, souvenirs, etc., and purchase Disney Gift Cards for that budgeted amount. Then, I exclusively use those Disney Gift Cards during my visit for all transactions to make sure I don't overspend. It works really well for me, so I highly recommend this strategy!

    At this time, there is no way to directly link Disney Gift Cards to your My Disney Experience app to use for all transactions throughout the parks. However, you can use Gift Cards for in-app purchases like Mobile Food Order and the Shop in Store feature. You will need to enter the Disney Gift Card information with each in-app transaction, as there is no way to save the gift card information in the app, but it's super simple to do so. All you need to do is follow the prompts to check out and click on "Add a Card." From there, you can just enter the 16-digit card number, and you are all set!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can also use gift cards to pay for your resort account charges at the end of your stay. While you will need to put a credit card down at check-in, the card is not charged until the end of your stay. So, you can make purchases using your Magic Band in the parks, which will be added to your hotel folio. Then, simply head down to the Front Desk at check-out and have them apply all the charges to your Disney Gift Cards.

    Sharon, I hope I have been helpful to you today! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again!

    Until next time,
