    Hi! I'm trying to find the best way to pay for Genie Plus and Individual Lightning Lanes and parking, etc at the parks using a Disney egift card that I purchased online from Target. I cannot find how to add to Apple Wallet or Magic Mobile.

    Hi there, Carol!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for stopping by with a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. It looks like you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth tomorrow... how exciting! As you count down the minutes until you drive under that enchanting archway welcoming you to the Walt Disney World Resort, let's chat about how to use your Disney Gift Card eGift.

    Carol, Disney Gift Cards are a convenient and reliable way to pay for food, merchandise, and services while visiting the Disney Parks. They're accepted at most dining and shopping locations on property and can be used as a method of payment on the Walt Disney World Resort website and in the My Disney Experience mobile app! In the email via which you received your Disney Gift Card eGift, you should see a 16-digit "Account Number" and an 8- or 4-digit "EAN," as well as a barcode. When you're ready to purchase Disney Genie+ service or an individual Lightning Lane entry, you'll want to enter those details into the My Disney Experience mobile app to complete your purchase. However, when making in-person purchases, like for parking at theme parks, you'll simply present the barcode contained in the email so that the Cast Member can scan it.

    Underneath the barcode in the email, you'll typically see buttons allowing you to add the gift card to your mobile wallet. When I've received gift cards in this format previously, I've always been able to tap "Add to Apple Wallet" and successfully pull the Disney Gift Card eGift into my mobile wallet. If you don't see this option, confirm you're viewing the eGift itself and not the confirmation email you received when you purchased the email. (The email will likely be titled "Your Disney Gift Card is Enclosed" or similar.) Additionally, while a Disney Gift Card cannot be stored in the My Disney Experience mobile app as a saved payment method at this time, I usually save the card details in a note on my phone so that I can quickly copy and paste the details into the app when I'm ready to make a purchase! Remember, you can purchase Disney Genie+ service after midnight on the day of your theme park visit, and you can make your first Lightning Lane entry selection beginning at 7:00 a.m.

    Carol, I hope you've found this information helpful and I wish you a most magical day at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any additional questions throughout your visit, you're always welcome to stop back by planDisney again. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
