    Hi- I’d like to purchase Disney gift card as a gift for a friend; can they use GC to purchase tickets/pass to theme park?

    Hiya Tabitha,

    Welcome to planDisney. Are you looking for new friends, Tabitha? Because you sound like one of the very best friends to have. Only an amazing friend would give the gift of magic through Disney Gift Cards! We are honored to be a part of your planning journey for your upcoming vacation.

    Disney Gift Cards are a fantastic gift because of their versatility. You can use Disney Gift Cards to purchase merchandise, snacks, meals, resort hotel stays, and yes, even Theme Park tickets!

    One thing to consider is sometimes the cost of Theme Park tickets exceeds the value of one single Disney Gift Card. Unfortunately, you cannot use more than one Disney Gift Card for a single transaction when purchasing Theme Park tickets. Once you enter one, the remaining balance must be paid with a debit/credit card. For this reason, I like to combine the values of the Disney Gift Cards into one. Before you give the Disney Gift Card to your friend, use the Disney Gift Card website to combine the values of multiple cards onto one Disney Gift Card (up to $1,000); this way, your friend can have all the money they need for their Theme Park tickets on one Disney Gift Card!

    I hope this was helpful, Tabitha! Before I let you go, if you are trying to estimate the cost of tickets, I recommend overestimating and making sure your Disney Gift Card amounts to a higher-tier ticket to be safe. If there is any extra money left over on the Disney Gift Card, your friend can get some snacks on you as well! Please come back and see us if you need anything else, you've always got a friend at planDisney.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
