    The meals & merchandise you charge to your room Account and pay off using the gift cards can be purchased in the parks or only at your hotel? My kids have tons of gift cards for our trip and I wanted to use them as much as they're able. Thanks!

    Hi Shana,

    I am so pleased to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I absolutely adore Disney Gift Cards! They make the perfect present because they can be used nationwide for all your favorite things Disney! 

    That means that your kids will be able to redeem their Disney Gift Cards for merchandise and a range of dining and entertainment options at participating locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including Walt Disney World Theme Parks, Disney Springs, Walt Disney World Water Parks, and Walt Disney World Resorts. Isn’t that great? You can use gift cards at Disney owned and operated locations where credits cards are currently accepted. In addition, gift cards can also be used toward accumulated purchases on your MagicBand. Please note that some carts, and other outdoor merchandise vendors may not be able to accept them.

    One last tip: register online to save your Disney Gift Cards. This will allow you to check your balance and even transfer balances from one card to another. How convenient is that? 

    I hope you have a magical time at the Walt Disney World Resort. Please come back with more questions!

    See ya real soon!
