    Can Disney gift cards be used to purchase food at restaurants and/or quick service locations?

    Hello Barbara! 

    You will be happy to hEAR that you can use Disney Gift Cards to not only purchase food at table service and quick service locations, but throughout the parks and resorts for practically anything! You can pay for your Walt Disney World theme park tickets, resort, and merchandise!

    A tip I have for using Disney Gift Cards is to save money throughout the year by buying Disney Gift Cards in small increments. Purchasing a $5 or $10 gift card each week may not seem like a lot, but the money really adds up over time! Then when your Walt Disney World vacation arrives, you will have money saved up to buy your souvenirs and make purchase while at the most magical place on earth! 

    I have a few suggestions on some great dining locations to use your Disney Gift Card!

    While you are visiting Walt Disney World, I highly suggest visiting Disney Springs! Not only can you use your Disney Gift Card at the World of Disney, but you can use it at the majority of the retail locations located here. Disney Gift Cards are also accepted as payment at most of the dining locations at Disney Springs. You won't want to miss the amazing pastries and cakes at Amorette’s Patisserie. Another one of my favorite places to dine is The BOATHOUSE

    When visiting Magic Kingdom, don't pass up Crystal Palace and Be Our Guest. At EPCOT, my favorite place to dine is Coral Reef! You can also use your Disney Gift Card at all of the quick service locations around the World Showcase! For all table service restaurants, make sure to make your advanced dining reservations 60 days in advance online.

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
