    I have email a Disney gift card to someone. How can they use it at Disneyland?

    Hello there, Jeann! Welcome to planDisney!

    How very generous of you to share the magic of a Disney Gift Card! I personally find that these are the best gift for Disney lovers, as they're versatile and can be used in so many different ways! From shopDisney to park tickets to merchandise and dining purchases at Disneyland Resort, you can't go wrong when gifting someone the freedom to do Disney their way!

    With that said, Guests can indeed use Disney Gift Cards throughout the parks, resorts and Downtown Disney District. When the gift card is emailed to the visiting Guest, it will include a barcode unique to their specific gift card. They can simply show the barcode to the Cast Member assisting them and they'll be able to use the funds from the card. They can also add the gift card to their Apple Wallet or similar storage on their mobile device for easy access.

    Disney Gift Cards can also be used for Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering at Disneyland Resort. Though you cannot copy and paste from the gift card, it can be helpful to store the gift card number in the notes section of your phone to copy it over when placing a Mobile Food Order. Mobile Food Ordering makes planning ahead easy! Once the order is placed and paid for (using your Disney gift card if you so choose), just head over to the pick-up location and tap "I'm Here. Prepare My Order" Your Disneyland Mobile App will alert you when it is ready for pick up!

    Jeann, I hope this has answered your question and that the recipient of your generous gift can use their eGift card seamlessly during their visit to the Disneyland Resort! Feel free to stop back by planDisney with any additional questions!

    Have a magical day,
