    do gift cards expire? or do we have to use them by a certain time?

    Hi Jenny!

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you decided to stop by with a question for us. You'll be glad to know that Disney Gift Cards do not have an expiration date. Hooray! You'll be able to use and re-load your Disney Gift Cards up to a maximum value of $1,000 over and over. So get ready to shop for your favorite apparel and souvenirs in the parks, aboard Disney Cruise Line, and online at shopDisney.

    I have a few extra tips I'd like to share when it comes to Disney Gift Cards. First, you can combine the balances of multiple cards into one. This is especially helpful if you or your loved one received multiple cards as a gift and you want to manage everything in one place. I shared the details with another guest earlier this month so check out this answer for step-by-step instructions

    Next, while you won't be able to store a Disney Gift Card as a method of payment in your Disneyland Mobile App you can use one to place Mobile Food and Beverage Orders, purchase Disney Genie+ Service or even complete transactions using Merchandise Mobile Checkout. When you reach the Order Summary page, scroll down to the "Use a Different Payment Method" link at the very bottom of the screen. There you can input your 16-digit Disney Gift Card number or scan the barcode to complete your purchase. My pal Mandy suggests saving your gift card number in the notes section of your phone so you can quickly copy and paste the details instead of pulling out the card each time. So smart!

    I hope this was helpful Jenny. If we can answer additional questions please come back and see us again. 

    Wishing you a magical New Year!
