    Hello. I love this panel and you all do an amazing job! I want to know, if we have the dining plan can we still use a disney gift card to pay for tipping at restaurants?

    I just love hearing compliments like that about the panel, Lori.  Thank you so much for your feedback!  We're so happy to have the opportunity to spread pixie dust far and wide.  As for your question, I can tell you that indeed you can use a Disney gift card to pay gratuities at restaurants that accept it, even when you use Dining Plan credits to cover your meal.  Alternately, you could charge all of your gratuities to your room and then use your Disney gift card to pay the balance of your room charges.  Either way will work.  Enjoy your trip, and don't hesitate to come on back and ask more questions if they should arise.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
