    If I have Disney gift cards can they be used anywhere in the parks? Like restaurants or food stands, as well as shops. Also will they work anywhere at Disney springs, and if I have an appointment with the grand Floridian spa would it work there?

    Hello, Tina!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! We’re happy to have you here. It may seem like your vacation is light years away, but in all actuality, it will be here in a blink of an eye. I love that you’re exploring options for paying for all of those delicious Mickey-shaped treats and exclusive merchandise in your near future. Let’s get into it! 

    I have great news: You can use Disney Gift Cards nearly everywhere at Walt Disney World Resort. I love using my own Disney Gift Cards to eat and shop at the theme parks, Resort hotels, and shopping areas. And yes, this includes at The Grand Floridian Spa, eating around the World Showcase at EPCOT, and even at restaurants around Disney Springs.

    Of course, because some stores at Disney Springs are not owned by Disney, a few may not accept Disney Gift Cards. However, you’ll be happy to hear that most do. If there’s a shop that you have your heart set on visiting while you’re there, I recommend calling that particular store to be sure.

    AN EXTRA GEM: You may have already realized this, but you can combine your Disney Gift Cards and check their balances online. It’s an easy way to organize your funds, quickly see what you have left to spend, and to track your spending in general. And by the way, you can also pay for food and merchandise (that use Mobile Ordering and Checkout) with your Disney Gift Card in the My Disney Experience app. How convenient is that?!

    I hope that you found this information helpful, Tina. I’m sending good vibes and pixie dust your way. If you have any other questions as you continue planning, let us know here at planDisney. 

    Magic always,
