    We are very excited to be heading to Caribbean Beach Resort in March. Can you use a Disney e-gift card at the Disney outlet store in Orlando? Thanks

    Hi Faye!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are about a month and a half away from your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth! I sure hope you are starting your countdown.

    Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is a beautiful Resort hotel. If you’ve ever visited the islands, it is a real reminder of that leisurely way of life. From the Calypso music to the vibrant colors and beautiful gardens, this is a great place to relax and unwind after a busy day at the Theme Parks! While you are here, make sure to pay attention to the Resort hotel activities guide. My kids love watching Movies Under the Stars and gathering around the Caribbean Beach Campfire.

    One of my most favorite additions to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is Disney Skyliner Transportation. Not only will you have gorgeous views while you travel on the beautifully themed gondola’s, but you also get to relax and enjoy a smooth ride to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    I love visiting outlet malls, especially when there is a Disney Outlet store. While I’ve used Disney Gift Cards in the past at Disney Outlet stores, I wanted to make sure that you can still use them as a form of payment.  I checked the shopDisney Guest Services/Gift Card site, and they state that “Yes, the Disney Gift Card can be used for purchases at the Disney Outlet Stores.”

    I want to offer one last Disney Mom Tip: Don’t forget to take advantage of Online Check-In. You can begin the online check-in process in advance using Disneyworld.com or the My Disney Experience App. If you take advantage of online check-in, they will send you updates on the status of your room availability. Once your room is ready, you will receive an update and likely can skip the Front Desk and head directly to your room! Remember to bring your MagicBand with you or set up the “Unlock Door feature” on your phone.

    I hope that you have a magical stay!
