    Do I need physical gift card or can I just keep on email on my phone

    Hey Howdy Hey Edward and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question about gift card usage. I will be happy to give you a little more insight into your options as you get ready to use them on your upcoming trip!

    When it comes to using gift cards, you essentially have 3 options. You can use them as a physical gift card if you have one, you can use them via email with the bar code to have Cast Members scan once you are onsite or you can download them to your virtual wallet and access them wirelessly through your smart device. 

    Edward, since it sounds like you already have the virtual gift card via email, I would say keep it virtual and no need to look into getting a physical one. On the email, you should see towards the bottom a bar code that Cast Members can scan when onsite in Walt Disney World Resort to redeem your gift card. That is perfectly fine to use, but at the very bottom of the email, you should also see an option to save the gift card to your wallet. 

    Depending on the brand of smart device you have, you can save this gift card to your virtual wallets such as Apple Pay or Googe Pay. Once you do, if you turn on the NFC capability from your smart device, you can access this gift card by simply tapping your smart device to the payment-accepting device when onsite. This may give you quick access to your gift card and save you some time without having to log into your smart device and pull up the email every time. 

    Hopefully, these options work out for your on your upcoming trip but no need to get a physical card if you already have it virtually! Please feel free to reach back out with any further questions you may have, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
