    Can you link a Disney gift card to the my Disney experience app to use to purchase Genie + and Individual Lighting Lanes?

    Hiya Stacey,

    Welcome back to planDisney! We really appreciate that you continue letting us be a part of your planning journey. On a personal note, as a proud Buckeye, it always makes my heart smile to see an Ohioan in the queue.

    I love Disney Gift Cards! You could look in my wallet right now and find at least two ready and waiting for my next vacation. As amazing as they are for paying for merchandise, food, and Disney Genie+, unfortunately, you are still not able to save a Disney Gift Card in the mobile app for mobile purchases. Each time you want to use your Disney Gift Card, you must input the numbers manually. I don’t know about you, but that is a lot of work! I’m usually carrying my daughter in one arm and pushing a stroller with the other, so manually typing in the number is not ideal. One planDisney tip I always use the night before my vacation is typing my Disney Gift Card number or numbers into the notes section of my mobile device. Then when I need to input the numbers for my transactions, I just copy and paste them into the payment method area. It saves so much time!

    Before I let you go, Stacey. If you have multiple Disney Gift Cards, I highly recommend combining them into one card. You cannot use multiple gift cards in one transaction, so if the total exceeds the amount on one gift card, you will be prompted to enter your credit/debit card information for the remaining balance.

    I hope this was helpful! Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
