    Hi Mom’s, can I use Disney gift cards anywhere in WDW parks and Resorts? Thank You

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Larry!

    I am very happy to share with you that Disney Gift Cards are accepted as a form of payment throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. During a recent visit I only used Disney Gift Cards to pay for all our dining and merchandise expenses, and I must say that it was definitely the best choice for my family. It was better to save during the year and purchase gift cards instead of using our credit cards and having to pay later!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, then I have a great tip for you. Did you know that you can use your MagicBand to charge purchases to your room? You must have a valid credit card linked to your Disney account and set up a PIN number that you can use with your MagicBands. Last year I visited with my family and the night before check-out I stopped by Front Desk to pay for all the expenses added to our hotel folio using a Disney Gift Card. This is so convenient because you can leave your gift cards in your room and simply use your MagicBand. However, don’t forget to stop by Front Desk the evening before check-out! After the clock strikes midnight all expenses will be charged to the credit card on your file.

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please stop by real soon if you have more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
