    how can my high schooler reserve dining if she can’t load a credit card on her mobile disneyland app? i am still confused how she can load a disney gift card there isn’t a place for payment options . she is going w her friend who is in high school .

    Hello, Karen!

    I'm so happy that your girl will get to spend some time with her friend at the Disneyland Resort! She's in for the time of her life! 

    She will need a credit card on file to make the dining reservations, but she can use Disney Gift Cards to pay her bill once she gets to the restaurants. 

    I'm also glad to share that she will be able to use Disney Gift Cards to order food through the Disneyland Mobile App, which is super convenient. After finalizing her food selection she will be prompted to check out.

    She will be able to select Apple Pay (which requires a credit card) or click on "Use a Different Payment Method" to use a Disney Gift Card. On the next screen, she will select "Add a Card" under "Disney Gift Card or Disney Rewards Redemption Card." Then she will choose "Disney Gift Card or Disney Dining Card" and enter the 16-digit number to complete the process. 

    Your girl will also be able to use Disney Gift Cards at most stores and snack carts, so she will be also in for one for the yummiest days of her life! 

    I hope these tips help her have a fantastic time with her friend, Karen! 

    May the magic be with you,
