    Hello! We’re looking to plan out Disney vacation soon, and are wondering if we are able to pay the down payment on our vacation with a Disney gift card?

    Hey there, Valerie, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! Here at the panel, we are passionate about helping you plan your trip to Walt Disney World! With this in mind, it’s fantastic that you are ready to start checking items off your Disney Vacation planning checklist! The vacation planning checklist can be quite extensive, so any opportunity to knock a few items out is always welcome. 

    My favorite Disney Vacation perk is the opportunity to pay your vacation package balance off over time. A Disney Vacation Package is created when Guests book a Disney Resorts Collection hotel stay and purchase Theme Park Tickets simultaneously. To secure your reservation and ticket purchase a $200 deposit (amount subject to change) is required, and the remaining balance is due 30 days before your arrival date. You get all of the time between those dates to make payments on your vacation package balance as you can! I love this perk because it helps make Disney Vacations accessible for more Guests. And it probably keeps most parents from passing out at the sticker shock! And to answer your question: Yes! You can pay the deposit amount (and any other payments) with a Disney Gift Card! Looks like you have just what you need to start planning your Disney adventure!

    I hope this helps, Valerie! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, please stop back by and let me know!

    You’ve got a friend in me,
