    Hello Can you use Disney Gift Cards to pay for things at the theme park, for food, Savi’s Lightsabers and to make Droids and other attractions?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    Welcome to planDisney! Disney Gift Cards are the perfect way to pay for so many things in and around the Walt Disney World Resort. My children often receive Disney Gift Cards as gifts for birthdays and holidays, and I even purchase them myself as a way to save for our vacations. When I work extra hours, I purchase a Disney Gift Card from a local retailer, then save them for our next visit. Did you know that you can combine smaller denominations of Disney Gift Cards onto one card? Use the Disney Gift Card Website to transfer balances from multiple cards onto a single card up to a maximum value of $1,000.

    Disney Gift Cards can be used at most Disney-owned and operated locations at the Walt Disney World Resort, the Disneyland Resort, Disney Cruise Line, and even at non-park locations like The Disney Store retail locations, shopDisney and Disney’s Beach Resorts. You can use Disney Gift Cards to pay for Disney Resort Hotel reservations, theme park tickets, merchandise and dining, tours and experiences, and more!

    You’ll be happy to know that Disney Gift Cards are accepted as galactic credits at Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge if Jedi in your family wishes to build a droid or lightsaber. My boys saved their own money to be able to build lightsabers at Savi’s Workshop, and some of their payment was made with Disney Gift Cards. While this was something my boys decided they wanted to do, I left the workshop thoroughly impressed, and I definitely felt the Force during the experience! I highly recommend it for Star Wars fans.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Elizabeth! Get ready to spend those Disney Gift Cards on all the magical things!
