    Hello, I would like to use Disney Gift Cards to help budget for my upcoming Disneyland trip. Can you use the Disney Gift Cards as a form of payment in the Disneyland App to purchase MaxPasses and food?

    Hi Gina!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I know using Disney Gift Cards as a budgeting tool is very popular and highly effective for many mouseketeers!

    When you initially purchase your tickets, if you are purchasing them online directly through Disneyland Resort, you will have the option to add Disney MaxPass on to your purchase. If you purchase Disney MaxPass at this point, you can use a Disney Gift Card as your form of payment. The only caveat is that when purchasing online only one form of payment is accepted, so your Disney Gift Card must cover the balance or you'll need to purchase over the phone. If you have already purchased your ticket and will be adding on Disney MaxPass each morning through the Disneyland Mobile App, unfortunately Disney Gift Cards cannot be used at this time. There are constantly updates being made to the Disneyland Mobile App so I would check back just before your trip, but unfortunately only credit and debit cards are acceptable forms of payment at this time.

    I hope this helps in planning for your upcoming visit! Please come back if we can help in any other way.
