    Can I use a gift card to purchase Disney Plus for my trip in February?

    Welcome to planDisney, Derek,

    Collecting Disney Gift Cards is my favorite way to budget for our Disney Parks vacations. You can use them at any Disney-owned and operated location at the Disneyland Resort. I use Disney Gift Cards for everything from paying for my stay at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels to purchasing balloons. And, yes, you can even use Disney Gift Cards for most purchases within the Disneyland app. I have used Disney Gift Cards to place Mobile Food & Beverage Orders and to purchase the Disney Genie+ service within the Disneyland app.

    Tony’s Tip: A Disney Gift Card eGift purchased from can be added to the digital wallet of your mobile phone. I love the convenience of making store purchases using my phone or my smartwatch without needing to pull out my wallet. It works similar to other mobile payment methods, except rather than tapping your device against the payment terminal, the Cast Member at a point of sale location scans the barcode displayed on your mobile device. Also, I usually copy the eGift number to a note on my mobile phone so I can easily copy-paste the number for purchases made within the Disneyland app.

    I love that you can use your Disney Gift Cards at most locations throughout the Disneyland Resort, including in a galaxy far, far away. As a heads-up, you will want to be prepared for a few Disneyland Resort locations that don’t currently accept Disney Gift Cards. These include non-Disney-owned shops and restaurants located in the Downtown Disney District. Having a backup form of payment handy may be useful for such cases.

    You’re going to love using Disney Genie+. On our recent Disneyland Resort vacation, we appreciated being able to pack more fun and magic into our day by utilizing the Lightning Lane offered at select attractions. As a Disneyland Resort exclusive, Genie+ also includes complimentary downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass photos taken on each day you have the Genie+ service.

    Have a magical time, Derek!
