    Hi! My family will be visiting WDW in April '24 and staying at a Good Neighbor Hotel. I know we'll need to pay for parking at the theme parks, but I'm not sure what forms of payment are accepted. Can we use a Disney gift card for parking fees?

    Hi Janette,

    We're so happy to see you back with another question- and a great one at that! I don't know why I've never thought to use a Disney Gift Card for theme park parking, but I'm happy to share that you certainly are able to do so. Did you know that your parking purchase is valid for use at all 4 theme parks on a single day? For instance, if you're planning to start your day at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and later use Park Hopper Option tickets to visit EPCOT, your parking pass will be valid all day with no additional fee at the secondary park.

    You can use a Disney Gift Card for most things during your visit whether you're looking to purchase theme park tickets, a new pair of Mickey ears, or even place a Mobile Food Order for a favorite snack (looking at you Werther's Original Caramel Butter Bar from Karamell-Küche). Though you won't be able to store a Disney Gift Card in your My Disney Experience Mobile App the way you can with a credit or debit card, you can still use it as a form of payment on the checkout screen. 

    One more tip- you'll only be able to use a single gift card per transaction, but if you happen to be purchasing something that requires multiple gift cards to cover the balance, you can combine up to 6 cards into one at I just recently did this when I purchased our tickets for Disney After Hours at EPCOT since I had a few smaller balance gift cards on hand. The website makes it so easy to name your cards and transfer balances between them.

    Janette, if we can offer any additional assistance as you make your travel plans please don't hesitate to stop back and see us again. We're always happy to help.
