    I have a 5 month old little girl and am already excited and planning her 5th birthday trip to Disney World. If I start getting gift cards now, will they still work when I go to book the trip in 4 years? Looking for ways to make it less of an expense later.

    Hello Tara!

    Wow! You are certainly planning ahead which is fantastic. Walt Disney World is ever changing, so it will be very exciting to see what evolves over the next five years.

    Disney Gift Cards are an excellent way to set-aside funds for a Disney vacation. And, some places like Sam's Club and BJ's Wholesale actually sell Disney Gift Cards at a discount. So, you can save money while saving up! We have been using Disney Gift Cards for over a decade. And, while nothing is ever an absolute guarantee, I feel confident that Disney Gift Cards will be fine for your 2023 trip.  You can use the cards to pay for your Disney Resort Hotel, theme park tickets, Disney Dining, and purchases at the online shop as well as on property.

    As the parent of adult children, make sure and not blink during the next five years, because they will fly by faster than Peter Pan!

    See ya real soon,
