    Hiya Natalie,

    Welcome to planDisney! Can you believe you will be at Walt Disney World Resort in two days? I’m so excited (and a little jealous) that you will visit the Most Magical Place on Earth soon. The Holidays are my favorite time of year, and Walt Disney World Resort does a fantastic job of brightening the season!

    Natalie, great news! You will be happy to know that you can use a Disney Gift Card to purchase Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lane purchases. In the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can pay for your purchase using a Disney Gift Card before processing your order. If you already have a credit card stored within your My Disney Experience account, this will show up as your default payment, so before you click purchase, change the payment method to a Disney Gift Card. Now, unlike a credit card, you cannot store the Disney Gift Card details within the mobile app as a default payment, so you will need to manually enter the Disney Gift Card numbers each time you want to purchase Disney Genie+, Individual Lightning Lanes, Mobile Food Ordering, or Merchandise Mobile Checkout. The best tip to speed up your checkout is to type your Disney Gift Card number in the notes section of your mobile device. Then, copy and paste the numbers each time you need to make a transaction. It will save you so much time!

    One last thing before I let you go, Natalie. Remember to register your Disney Gift Cards online before your trip. If you were to misplace your Disney Gift Card, you could redeem the remaining value of your card as long as it is registered. Additionally, by registering online, you can track how much money you have remaining more quickly than by doing mental math.

    I hope you have a magical vacation! Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Texas

Hey Y'all! I’m Ashley and I live in Texas. My family and I love trying out the yummy snacks (DOLE Whip anyone!) and taking full advantage of our resort days. When we are not piloting the Millennium Falcon, exploring Kilimanjaro Safaris, or watching fireworks, you can find me planning our next adventure to Walt Disney World! I am so excited that you are planning a trip, and I look forward to helping you dig a little deeper and find the magic in all of the wonders of Walt Disney World Resort. Learn More About Ashley
