    Hello, I’m wanting to book a Disney package, hotel and tickets. Can I use a Disney gift card I have to pay the deposit online? and also use the gift card to pay some of the remaining balance off ? or is it just debit/credit cards for online bookings?

    Hi, Jennifer! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You should be able to use a Disney Gift Card to pay the deposit on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package, as well as the remaining balance. When you reach the payment portion of the checkout screen, you should see “use another payment method” as one of the options. Click that and then enter your Disney Gift Card number.

    When you check into your official Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will need a credit or debit card on file for incidentals, but you can still use a Disney Gift Card to pay for the reservation. 

    There is a new policy in place as of February 27, 2019 regarding pre-authorization of credit card funds for Walt Disney World Resort hotel stays. Make sure you’re familiar with the policy and its stipulations before you check in.

    If you have any questions or concerns as you’re booking your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package, visit the online Help Center for access to Frequently Asked Questions about reservations and payment options. You can also contact the Help Center via phone, email or online chat as well. Additionally, a Guest Services Cast Member will happily stay on the line (or chat) with you as you make your reservation and process your payment online. International phone numbers are included on the phone directory, too.

    Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help you as you plan, Jennifer! 2020 will be here before you know it.

    Best wishes,
