    Can I use Disney gift cards at resort restaurants such as Chef Mickeys? I will not be staying at a Disney resort so would be using it to pay for the meal. Also, can I use gift cards to pay for parking at the Disney parks? Thanks!

    Hi Amy, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    Disney Gift Cards are a great way to budget for your upcoming Disney Parks vacation. I’m happy to say that they’re typically accepted for anywhere credit cards are accepted, which means you can use them at Disney dining locations in all of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels, including Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. 

    Plus, you can usually use Disney Gift Cards to pay for parking at the Theme Parks, but I’ve found that sometimes the machines aren’t working perfectly well, so I would definitely recommend that you have a backup payment method, just in case. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
