    I want to gift a family with a Disney vacation including all. With the Dining plan still not being offered, I'm looking for alternatives. Gift Cards would be the best option. What's the best way to manage this? Thank you

    Hi Jamie!

    Wow! When I read your question, I was blown away by your kindness! The love and care in your heart must be bursting at the seams! 

    I think that the best way to gift a Walt Disney World vacation is to purchase Disney gift cards and provide them to the family. A few years back, there was a Walt Disney World website that allowed guests to purchase the gift of theme park tickets, water park tickets, and annual passes. While this specific website is no longer active, you can purchase Disney Gift Cards online or in-person at a variety of retailers. Guests can use Disney Gift Cards for pretty much anything at Walt Disney World, including theme park tickets, resort hotel stays, dining, merchandise, and much more.

    You can also choose to gift the Walt Disney World theme park tickets by purchasing them online and entering the family's information under "Guest Information" when you make the theme park ticket purchase

    I also have a few ideas for gifting the Walt Disney World vacation to make the experience even more exciting! One idea is to gift wrap a large box with helium-filled Disney balloons inside. I would purchase two red, two black, and one yellow plain latex balloons with one Disney-themed mylar balloon. Include a large card that says, "You're going to Walt Disney World!" 

    Another idea is to wrap Disney toys, such as a Mickey Mouse plush, and include a note that says "You can see more of me when you visit Walt Disney World!" 

    Since you are gifting the entire family, you could consider giving a more substantial gift card to the parents and then smaller gift cards to the kids. The kids can use their gift cards to purchase a souvenir when at the parks.

    When you provide the family with the Walt Disney World vacation gift, make sure that they know how to make their advanced theme park reservations online as well as any advanced dining reservations. Please tell them to visit us at planDisney to help them plan their magical vacation!

    And Jamie, we need more kind hearts like yours in the world. Please know that you not only are touching the lives of this family, but us over here at planDisney and all of the Guests who visit the site as well. Your love and kindness are palpable.
