    Hi, Nora!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m glad to hear you’re making plans to visit the Disneyland Resort with your family!

    The Disney Gift Card can be used to purchase almost everything Disney-related, from Disneyland Resort tickets, to hotel stays, to merchandise, to your favorite theme park snacks and more! You can use Disney Gift Cards at many locations around the Disneyland Resort, including the shops, snack carts and restaurants in the theme parks, at the resort hotel shops and dining locations, and at select Downtown Disney District stores. Buying gift cards in advance is a wonderful way to build up your trip fund and can be more convenient than carrying a large amount of cash with you while traveling. You can even combine several gift card balances onto just one card by visiting disneygiftcard.com. Registering your gift cards online is also a smart way to protect your money in case a card is ever lost or stolen. 

    How much you will need to budget for your trip depends on many factors, including how many days you plan to visit the theme parks, where you’d like to stay, and whether you plan to enjoy any Character Dining meals or experience signature restaurants. I suggest exploring disneyland.com, where you can price out a hotel stay or vacation package for your group and see the resort’s various dining options available to you.

    I hope this helps, Nora, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!  Please write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan your family vacation.

    Wishing you magic,
