    Hi there. We will be in Disney World in Nov. I live in Canada and was wondering if I can purchase Disney e-gift cards in Canadian dollars? so I don't get charged an international fee. I know it will be converted to US when I'm there.

    Welcome back to planDisney, Lesley! 

    Disney Gift Cards are one of my go-to ways to save money while at my Happy Place, Walt Disney World Resort. Sometimes my spending can get a little out of hand (step away from the Loungefly mini backpacks, LeAndra!), so having a gift card helps to keep me on track. I’d be happy to give you the information you need for your upcoming magical vacation, Lesley! 

    First, you’ve definitely done your research because, yes, the purchases made with your Disney Gift Card while at Walt Disney World Resort will be converted to the U.S. dollars (at the current rate). And yes, you can purchase a Disney Gift Card in Canadian dollars. However, the wonderful news is that you will not be charged an international fee for your purchases, which can save you a lot of money!  Of course, that just means more money for yummy Disney snacks! 

    Lesley, you can use your Disney Gift Cards almost everywhere at the Walt Disney World Resort. Besides at some third-party stores and other random exceptions, use it at table-service restaurants like The Crystal Palace Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park or even while shopping at stores like the World of Disney at Disney Springs

    AN EXTRA GEM: What’s super convenient about the Disney Gift Cards is that you can use this method of payment for your quick Mobile Orders around property, too! At the bottom-right corner of the My Disney Experience App, you’ll find three horizontal lines that will lead you to a menu. Select "My Profile,” and then select "Payment Method." You should be able to type your card’s number as an option for payment. 

    Revisit us here at planDisney if you have any other questions, Lesley. I’m all ears!

    Magic always,
