    Can you use disney gift cards at disney world for things like merchandise or food?

    Hi Caitlyn!

    I love using Disney Gift Cards to manage my vacation budget! It's the perfect way to pay for your vacation expenses in advance. Plus, I love giving my little Mouseketeers Disney Gift Cards for their souvenEAR budget because it's a great way to teach them to manage their money during our trip!

    You can use Disney Gift Cards for almost all of your purchases during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You'll find that they are accepted at Disney Resort hotels, restaurants, merchandise locations, recreational facilities, and more. All Disney-owned locations at Walt Disney World Resort and many locations that are not owned by Disney will accept Disney Gift Cards for payment. In my experience, I've found that Disney Springs has the most locations that are not Disney owned and some of those locations do not accept Disney Gift Cards. However, you will find that the vast majority of the locations at Walt Disney World Resort will accept them for your purchases!

    Be sure to add your gift cards to the Disney Gift Card website so you can access your card balances and transfer your funds between cards, if needed. Your card balance will also be printed at the bottom of your receipt every time you use your card for a purchase. Also, if you will be purchasing Disney Gift Cards as gifts, be sure to check out the adorable gift card options available at shopDisney. They have a design to capture every celebration, favorite Disney Character or magical moment!

    Feel free to come back to see us if we can help you again as your trip approaches. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
