    Good afternoon Mom's Panel, I have a question regarding gift cards purchased in Canada. Can I still use them at Walt Disney World? Will they adjust for any exchange rates? Thank you for your time. Your answers are very helpful in planning my trip.

    Hi Eileen, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question, my fellow Canadian! I’m thrilled to hear that our answers are helping you plan your upcoming vacation. 

    I’m also happy to say that you can use any Disney Gift Cards purchased in Canada to pay for almost anything at Walt Disney World Resort. In fact, they can be used anywhere that Disney Gift Cards issued in U.S. Dollars (USD) are accepted. 

    As for the exchange rate, the card’s face value in Canadian dollars will get automatically converted into USD based on the prevailing exchange rate on the day that the card was first used. After that, the amount you’ll have left in USD is “locked in” and you won’t need to deal with exchange rate issues for any subsequent transactions with that card. Make sure to check the bottom of that first receipt that you’ll receive to know how much money you have left! 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. We’re always truly happy to help make Disney dreams come true. 

    Have a Magical Day, 

    Lynne
