    Can disney gift cards be utilized at an on-site restaurants (character dining, themed dining, etc.) and food kiosks in Walt Disney World?

    Hello Bridget!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    I love using Disney Gift Cards while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. I think it is a great idea to save money during the months prior to your vacation, and then purchasing gift cards to use this money and simply forget about credit or debit cards.

    I am happy to share with you that you can pay for dining experiences with your Disney Gift Cards throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. They are accepted at Disney owned and operated locations where credit cards are accepted, but please note that you may not be able to pay for purchases made at some carts, kiosks, and outdoor vendors, so check with Cast Members before making your purchase. During my last visit I used gift cards to pay for all of our dining experiences, including character dining. You can even deduct your server’s tip from your gift card.

    What I also love about Disney Gift Cards is that if you are a Guest at a Disney Resort hotel you can use your MagicBand to pay for dining and other expenses, and then visit Front Desk the night before check-out to pay for your balance using your gift card.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Bridget! Thank you for stopping by and please come back real soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
