    Hey me again.. how many Disney gift cards can I use at one meal or for one purchase? I'm getting conflicting answers online.

    Hello again Sarah!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are always happy to answer your questions!

    Disney Gift Cards are one of the ways my family sticks to a budget while at the Walt Disney World Resort. We have used them at dining locations, merchandise shops, and our resort hotel. On prior trips, we have not been limited in the number of Disney Gift Cards we could use. If for some reason you are, you can transfer Disney Gift Card balances to one or more cards. When we have multiple Disney Gift Cards and several have smaller balances, I will transfer those balances to one card. Or, since we typically stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, we have charged certain items (meals included) to the room folio using our MagicBands and then used our Disney Gift Cards to pay down the folio balance with the resort hotel.

    Once you have those gift cards, just be sure to log onto the Disney Gift Card website and create an account so that you can manage all of your cards. On our last trip, which was the week before Christmas, our girls received several Disney Gift Cards from grandparents and other relatives, so they used those early Christmas presents to purchase souvenirs while we were on vacation. Doing so allowed them a little freedom and they practiced some of those math skills.

    Since it sounds as if you will have quite a few Disney Gift Cards on your trip, I do hope you have considered how you will organize them. They need to be easily accessible yet also safely secured. Review the Terms and Conditions and remember to double-check to make sure that your selected locations accept Disney Gift Cards before you start your dining experience or make your merchandise purchase. 

    Sarah, be sure to keep your eye on the operational updates for the Walt Disney World Resort as policies and procedures could change by the time of your visit. Also keep in mind that with new health and safety measures, guests are being encouraged to use cashless tor contactless payment options, so Disney Gift Cards are a good choice. Keep bringing us these great questions and get ready to pack - it's never too early to practice your packing strategy!

    Magic and memories,
