    I'm planning a trip in the next 2 years for a make a wish return trip. Can we purchase physical gift cards in the store and add them to our Disney experience app, save up and purchase the resort stay via the app?

    Heigh-Ho Hannah,

    Let the countdown begin for your Make-A-Wish return trip, Walt Disney World can hardly wait to welcome all of you Home. And kudos to you for budgeting and planning, in advance, this is considered Disney Vacation Pro status, in my book. 

    Disney Gift Cards are a great way to save for an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. Whether your budgeting goal is to pay for your Walt Disney World Resort room or vacation package, establish spending money for food and/or souvenirs or even pay off your resort bill at the end of your stay, Disney Gift Cards are worth the investment. At the moment, Guests are UNABLE to add Disney Gift Cards to their My Disney Experience profile but don’t let that deter you. 

    Continue to purchase and save your Disney Gift Cards. A deposit will be required, at the time you book your vacation, and payment in full is expected 30-days prior to your arrival date. To use your Disney Gift cards, at any time towards your room or vacation package balance, you have two options. Guests can sign into their My Disney Experience profile, select Resort and follow prompts to apply a form of payment towards the balance. Or Guests can call the Disney Reservation Center and speak to a Cast Member, who can apply the Disney Gift Cards towards your balance.

    If we can be of any further assistance, helping you plan your Make-A-Wish return trip, do not hesitate to reach out to us, at planDisney.  

    Much pixie dust,

    Amy M.
