    Can Disney Gift Cards be used at restaurants within disney and downtown disney? I don't want to do the meal plan, but still wanted to way to make dining easier with a party of 8. Everyone will contribute $$ to the card then it will be used for dining.

    Hello Diana,

    Disney Gift Cards are a fantastic way to budget for a Walt Disney World vacation. Not only are they accepted at mostly all shops and dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort but many Guests, myself included, will slowly purchase them before an upcoming stay and use them to purchase theme park tickets or as payment towards our hotel room and/or vacation package. 

    If budgeting for dining, with your party of eight, is easier and more cost effective by everyone chipping in for a Disney Gift Card, rather than using the Disney Dining Plan, then I say go for it. 

    If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask and may your upcoming stay at Walt Disney World be filled with many magical and memorable moments.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
