    I’ve got a gift card for Disney. I was wondering if there’s an option to load the credit onto my acc so I don’t have to hold the card until I’m ready to use it. When I’m ready to go to Disney world, I can just use the credit. Is that possible

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Thomas!

    We are thrilled to answer your first question and help you plan a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! Get ready to make pixie-dusted memories you will cherish forever!

    I always use Disney Gift Cards while visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth. They are accepted at most dining and merchandise locations and can even be used to pay for tickets, Disney Resort hotel stays, experiences, and more. Disney Gifts Cards are also a very convenient way to budget and save money for my Disney vacations because I can buy them ahead of time as I plan my visits to Mickey.

    I usually purchase Disney eGift Cards online because they can be added to my digital wallet, and then I can use my mobile devices, like my cell phone, to pay for my purchases. However, if you only have physical gift cards, I recommend creating a Disney Gift Card account online, adding your gift cards to your account, and transferring amounts to one single card with a value of up to $1000. You can then purchase a Disney eGift Card, add it to your Disney Gift Card account, and then transfer funds to the eGift card. You can then link your electronic gift card to your digital wallet and use your mobile device.

    planDisney tip: To pay for meals while using Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering via the My Disney Experience mobile app, you will have to provide your Disney Gift Card number every time you make a transaction. To make life easier, I always create a note on my mobile phone with my gift card number to easily copy and paste the information into the app to pay for my purchases.

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Thomas. I hope this information is helpful and that you have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    See ya real soon,
