    Off to WDW next month for a birthday celebration! Don't want to carry a lot of cash or use my credit card. Can you use Disney gift cards for purchases in the parks, hotel, and Disney Springs? Thanks Moms.

    Hi Amy!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    I'm so excited to hear you'll be celebrating a special birthday at Walt Disney World Resort. I can't imagine a happier place to celebrate - you're in for a fun getaway next month! I completely understand not wanting to carry around a lot of cash or run up a huge credit card balance on your vacation - I'm the same way!

    Disney Gift Cards are accepted at all Disney owned and operated locations where credit cards are accepted throughout Walt Disney World Resort. You'll be able to use your gift cards at all four theme parks, Disney Springs, Disney World Water Parks, and resort hotels.

    If you have several Disney Gift Cards and would like to consolidate the balances to one card, you can do that easily by visiting disneygiftcard.com. I try to stock up on Disney Gift Cards before a visit to Walt Disney World, and always use the gift card website to transfer the balance to one card - it makes it so much easier to keep up with!

    If you're a guest of a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can charge purchases to your resort hotel room using your MagicBand. You can use Disney Gift Cards to pay down the balance of your resort room charges by visiting the Guest Services desk the evening before you check out of your resort hotel.

    I hope this is helpful in your planning and preparation for your trip. Have a magical day, Amy! - Diane W.
