    Hi I am a Florida resident, I was wondering if I'm able to use disney gift cards to pay for my down payment on an annual pass, and use my debit/credit card or even the same gift card for monthly payments.

    Hiya Jasmine,

    Welcome to planDisney! Having an Annual Pass is a fantastic way to experience more magic at Walt Disney World Resort. From discounts on dining and merchandise to access to Passholder exclusives, being a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder is terrific! I love the exclusive merchandise from the special Annual Passholder collection at EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival; it is my favorite festival, so I need every single piece. Once you secure your new year of Annual Pass benefits, be sure to check it out!

    Great question about paying for your annual pass! I am a massive fan of Disney Gift Cards and love using them for all my purchases while at Walt Disney World Resort. The good news is that you can use your Disney Gift Card to make your initial down payment (make sure you are only using one), but you must use a debit/credit card to set up the monthly payment contract. I spoke to a Cast Member, and if you would like to use a Disney Gift Card for one of your monthly payments, you can do so, just not online. You must do so at Guest Relations in Disney Springs or one of the four Theme Parks.

    I hope this was helpful, Jasmine! Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
