    How do I link my Disney gift card to my app? I’ve been in my profile and tried to add a payment method but there was not an option to add a gift card only credit or debit.

    Hi there, Angela - welcome to planDisney!

    You're asking about two great things! Disney Gift Cards are an excellent method of payment for purchases at Walt Disney World Resort, and the My Disney Experience Mobile App is a magical way to make many of those purchases, including Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, Merchandise Mobile Checkout, Disney Genie+ Service, Individual Lightning Lanes, and so much more!

    Angela, Disney Gift Cards aren't currently able to be saved to your My Disney Experience account as a saved method of payment. Don't fret, this is just a limitation related to saved methods of payment - you can still use a Disney Gift Card at the check-out screen for many of these purchases!

    Personally, I don't love to carry around an extra gift card with me while I'm in the Theme Parks, so I like to create a note on my smartphone with the important card numbers needed at check-out. Then I can just copy and paste them in for a faster check-out!

    You'll also want to keep in mind that you can only use a single Disney Gift Card as a method of payment per transaction. If you have a few of them with smaller balances, you might want to create a Disney Gift Card account and then transfer those balances all onto one of your cards (maximum of $1,000 balance on any one card).

    I'm sorry that loading a Disney Gift Card as a saved method of payment isn't an option at this time, but I hope this information is helpful!
