    Is there a list of all the dining and shopping locations that accept Disney gift cards as payment in Disney World?

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for visiting us at planDisney. We are so glad you are here!

    We love to use Disney Gift Cards when we are on vacation. Not only do they help us keep our overall budgeting on track, but they are also a great way to give our daughters a way to manage their own souvenir and snack shopping. With the freedom to enjoy all of the incredible Walt Disney World Resort snacks and merchandise, they can make the best purchasing decisions for themselves without needing to ask us for permission. They love that independence and I love that there is a limit! 

    I think you will find that almost all Disney-owned and operated locations at Walt Disney World Resort gladly accept Disney Gift Cards. From my experience, I would only expect to use another form of payment at some of the exciting shops and restaurants in Disney Springs or some limited festival booths in EPCOT

    An easy way to make sure you are maximizing your Disney Gift Card dollars as a Guest of a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is to combine it with the power of a MagicBand or MagicBand+. As you go about your day, you can simply tap your powerful accessory for payment. Then, visit the front desk of your Resort hotel at the end of the evening to make a payment on your Folio balance using your Disney Gift Card. I love that level of convenience! 

    Chris, did you know that you can create an account at and store your Disney Gift Card numbers? You can also transfer balances from one account to another, allowing you to carry only one physical card. This provides the added benefit of having a plan if you misplace your Disney Gift Card! All is not lost when you can simply transfer the balance of your missing card to another. (I know this from personal experience!) 

    We love to help our friends here at planDisney, Chris! Come on back and visit us with any other questions as you prepare for your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    Adventure is out there,
