    Disney Gift Cards -- are there expiration dates or any other fees associated with not using gift cards within a certain period of time? (Some cards lose value per month or per year of in-use)

    Hey Howdy Hey again Ida and welcome back to planDisney! 

    Thank you so much for your question about Disney gift cards and expiration dates. There are so many varieties of gift cards with redemption periods and fees that it may be hard to find that answer. Hakuna Matata Ida, I've got you covered on this one!

    I am happy to share that Disney gift cards never expire and there are no fees associated with their use or ownership. The amount that is on the gift card also does not lose value.

    This benefit is one of the many reasons that strategies exist for saving for Disney vacations using gift cards! There are places out there, like Target, that sell Disney gift cards and if you use your credit card from that store, you might get cash back or a credit to your account with their special offers. This makes the trend of buying gift cards one of the more popular ways to save for your vacation!

    Another added benefit of technology advances is your digital wallet. Most often, you can save your gift cards to your Google Pay or Apple Pay accounts and have access to them digitally. You can then pay for things such as room reservations and almost anything in Walt Disney World Resort right from your smart device! You can even mobile order food from many Walt Disney World locations through your My Disney Experience app and pay with your linked gift cards. There are so many great reasons why some Guests prefer to use them instead of a traditional savings account. 

    I hope this information was helpful in your decision to purchase Disney gift cards hopefully to plan your next trip to the Vacation Kingdom of the World! If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
