    I live in Canada If I bought a Disney gift cards that can be purchased at the grocery store. How does the exchange rate work for that? As an example if I bought a $25 gift card and went to Disneyland would it still have the $25 on it to spend?

    Greetings, Tarra and welcome to planDisney!

    As a fellow Canadian Disney fan, it would be my great pleasure to assist you with your question regarding Disney Gift Cards.

    When Disney Gift Cards made their magical appearances at select Canadian stores, I was absolutely thrilled and I would stock up on them to help pay down our Disneyland Resort Vacation Packages or pay for our Disneyland Resort theme park tickets at once. If a physical Disney Gift Card is purchased in Canada, the funds will be in Canadian dollars. When you then redeem the Disney Gift Card for any purchase to the U.S. official Disney site, or for any purchases in person during your visit to Disneyland Resort, the exchange rate from Canadian to U.S. dollars will be factored in at the point of redemption. So for your example of purchasing your $25.00 Disney Gift Card in Canada, it would be in Canadian funds, therefore when you choose to redeem the gift card for any purchases at Disneyland Resort, there will be an exchange rate conversion from Canadian funds to U.S. funds.

    Tarra, you are also able to purchase Disney Gift Cards in U.S. dollars online in the form of a Disney Gift Card eGift, an electronic version which is then emailed to you with a link where you can add it to your digital wallet on your mobile device. This is how I now manage my Disney Gift Cards, right in my digital wallet, and I also enter the Disney Gift Cards as a Payment Method in my Disneyland Mobile App. By having updated my Disneyland Mobile App - Payment Method, I can use the app to pay for vacation essentials such as Mobile Food & Beverage Orders, Merchandise Mobile Checkout, adding the Disney Genie+ service as soon as you enter a theme park and much more! Kindly refer to the current Disney Gift Card Terms and Conditions - Canada for further information.

    Take a look at the current Disneyland Resort special offers toward a future stay to enjoy all the benefits of staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel and experience being in the middle of the Disney magic!

    Tarra, I hope this information was helpful, I thank you for consulting planDisney and I look forward to offering any further assistance again soon, thank you so much!

    Best Disney Wishes!
