    Can a family purchase tickets to Walt Disney world using Disney gift cards?

    Hey there, welcome to planDisney Louise. Gift cards are a huge way my family budgets our visits to Walt Disney World

    There are a few ways we use Disney Gift Cards before and during our vacation. When we are deciding on when and where we will be staying for our trips, rarely do we pay our balance off upfront. We budget during the year and sometimes find sales on gift cards or receive them as gifts. We use the cards to pay our balance sometimes. We combine them on the website to make it easier which is handy. You can use them on the My Disney Experience page to make a payment for your vacation package or even if you are just purchasing tickets. The most that can be added to one card is $1000 so just know there is a limit. 

    We also use them at the EPCOT festivals to make sure we have a limit on the amount of yummy things one can and should enjoy. We also give each of our children a personal gift card with their souvenir allowance for the visit. My older kids love it because now they can shop and use their phones to pay. We just make sure to load it on each phone before we arrive. That way if they are away from us and want something they don’t have to come to find us. They didn’t know we were teaching them life skills by making them go buy their souvenirs. 

    I hope this helps you manage your payment. Stop back again if you have any other questions at and we will be ready to help again. 

    Have a magical stay,
