    Hello. Can we use Disney gift cards to purchase the individual lightning lane passes?

    Hey there, Heather! Thanks for visiting us at planDisney. You must be super excited for your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort! 

    The answer is YES! You can use a Disney Gift Card towards the purchase of Individual Lightning Lanes, as well as other in-app purchases like Disney Genie+ service and mobile ordering.
    At this time, you cannot save your Disney Gift Card number in the app, so what I usually do is put the Disney Gift Card number in my notepad in my phone (from where I can easily cut and paste it) or keep a piece of paper handy with the Disney Gift Card number written down. This helps me access it easily when I need to enter the Disney Gift Card number when making purchases in the app.

    You might have already known this, but you can only purchase two Individual Lightning Lanes across both parks in a day, however there are three attractions that offer it, so choose wisely! In my experience, of the three attractions with Individual Lightning Lanes, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance goes the fastest so you might want to prioritize purchasing that one as soon as you enter the parks in the morning. 

    Good luck and enjoy the magic!
