    Hi! We are finally sure when we'll be visiting Disney World! I have never used my Disney App to pay. I was wondering, can I register a regular visa gift card as a payment method? We won't be staying on Disney hotels. Thank you!

    Hey Ana! Thanks for stopping by planDisney! There’s nothing better than planning a vacation to Walt Disney World.

    I am happy to report back that yes, you can absolutely use your Disney Gift Card on My Disney Experience but only for mobile ordering, which means you can and should get an extra Mickey's Premium Ice Cream Bar!

    It’s almost been an annual tradition that my parents give my wife, daughter, and I Disney Gift Cards for the holidays. This way we can collect them and take them on our next Disney vacation.

    There is a workaround here to use your Disney Gift Cards for other purchases if you’re staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel by applying it to your room. However, I would highly recommend putting a payment method on your phone as it’ll make your Walt Disney World vacation so much easier!

    If you have any other questions please let us know. Otherwise, be sure to tell Mickey I said hello!
