    I want to only use my gift cards at this time to make a payment towards my trip but it’s telling me I have to use a credit or debit too

    Hey Melissa!

    Booking a vacation package at the Walt Disney World Resort is a magical experience, and there are many exciting ways to customize your trip. Be sure to check out the Special Offers that Disney frequently offers, such as discounts on resort stays, dining plans, or park tickets. Keeping an eye on these deals can help you save money and enhance your visit.

    Staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel comes with a variety of perks. These include early park entry, complimentary transportation to and from the parks, and the immersive Disney theming that enhances your overall experience. Guests can also enjoy priority access to dining reservations and the convenience of having purchases delivered to their hotel from the parks.

    Regarding your payment, I reached out to a Disney Cast Member today to clarify the process. The Cast Member confirmed that you can indeed use a Disney Gift Card to make payments toward your vacation. If you haven't already booked your reservation, you should see the option to pay with a Disney Gift Card during the checkout process. The website allows Guests to use one Disney Gift Card per transaction, but if you have multiple gift cards, you should combine them into one on the Disney Gift Card website, up to a maximum of $1000.

    You can also call the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Reservations line, and a Cast Member will be able to assist you in processing the payment over the phone.

    If you have already booked a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package and wish to use your Disney Gift Card for payment, you can follow these steps to make a payment toward your vacation package:

    Log into your My Disney Experience account.

    Hover over the My Disney Experience logo in the top right corner.

    Select My Plans from the drop-down menu.

    Locate your upcoming reservation.

    Next to your reservation, select Make a Payment.

    Choose Disney Gift Card as your payment method.

    I hope this helps you book that reservation! Enjoy planning your magical Disney vacation, and don’t hesitate to stop back and see us here at planDisney real soon!
