    Can I use Disney gift cards for dining at sit down restaurants such as character dining?

    Hey there M,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! It looks like you have a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth coming up in just a few short weeks - how exciting!

    I'm a huge fan of Disney Gift Cards because they are good for practically all things Disney. You can use your Disney Gift Card to purchase theme park tickets, merchandise, and yes even dining throughout the parks!

    When prompted for payment, you'll just put your Disney Gift Card information in instead of a credit or debit card. Alternatively, if you're making a Mobile Food & Beverage Order from the Disneyland Resort mobile app, there is an option to use a Disney Gift Card for payment as well. When using this method, you can just scan your gift card's barcode to make it quick & easy.

    I love using Disney Gift Cards to help me stay on budget when visiting the parks. You can pre-load it with the amount you want to cap your spending and use it as a gentle reminder that maybe that cool new Oogie Boogie Bash shirt can wait until next time. Wait, is that just me?!

    I hope that's a helpful crash course on all things Disney Gift Card, M - thanks again for your question! 

    Have a Magical Day,
