    Can you use gift cards other than disney gift cards at the parks?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Friend! I absolutely love your name, and I think it's quite fitting! Here at planDisney, we're all your friends too!

    Disney Gift Cards are absolutely amazing, especially if you're traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort on a budget. Every time I find myself in the process of planning a Disney trip, I try to purchase a couple of gift cards to use during my magical vacation. I actually like to purchase them from Target, because they do tend to run special discounts on Disney Gift Cards every so often!

    Friend, it's important for you to note that Disney Gift Cards are the only gift cards that you'll be able to use within the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks, with the exception of the Yak & Yeti Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Did you know that Yak & Yeti is the only restaurant at any of the Theme Parks that isn't owned and operated by Disney? That's a fun trivia fact for you!

    Now, leaving the four Theme Parks and two Water Parks behind, Disney Springs is also a huge exception to this rule. Since Disney Springs houses many independent stores and restaurants, you will be able to use other gift cards there–– just make sure that these gift cards are eligible at the specific locations that you'd like to visit. In addition to this, lots of non-Disney owned and operated shops and restaurants at Disney Springs actually take Disney Gift Cards for transactions, so that's definitely a win-win situation for you!

    Friend, I hope that my answer has helped clarify things for you. I hope that your Disney vacation is filled with crazy amounts of magic! If you have any other questions, you know where to find us. We're always happy to help!

    Warm hugs,

    Ana Paula
