    Hi there! Travelling to Disney World next week (yay) for my first time in over 10 years. For christmas I was given a few pre-paid visa gift cards for the trip (purchased in Canada if it matters). Are they accepted at the park or shops in Disney Springs?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Amanda and thank you for your question!

    As a fellow Canadian, also from Ontario, I love using the pre-paid Visa Gift cards. To redeem your Canadian Visa Gift cards outside of Canada, check to see if the gift card states ‘Valid in Canada’ on the front. If so, then your provider has issued a Domestic Use Only card, whereupon it will be welcome at all locations within Canada where Visa is accepted. Beyond this, if the card has no stipulation for Domestic Use, then you should be able to use the Visa Gift card for purchases outside of Canada. Please note that if the Visa Gift card is in Canadian funds then conversion to U.S. funds will take place at the point of redemption at Walt Disney World Resort, including Disney Springs. I would recommend calling the telephone number on the back of your Visa Gift card to double check.

    If you wish to redeem a U.S. Disney Gift Card, the current locations of redemption are within the link provided.

    Get ready to enjoy countless hours of entertainment, a variety of dining and the most fulfilling shopping experience at Disney Springs, there is so much to see and do, that you'll want to return for a second visit.

    If you visit The BOATHOUSE restaurant, you'll see the vintage dreamboats from the 1930's-1950's, which are water taxis and amphibious autos called Amphicars.

    Amanda, I hope this information is helpful and hope we can be of assistance to you in the near future with your planning.
    Wishing you a most exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort's Disney Springs.
