    Can I pay with gift cards in a character dining restaurant?

    Welcome to planDisney, Liliana. Let's get your question answered!

    As long as the restaurant at which you are dining is owned and operated by Disney, you should be all set to pay for your meal with a Disney Gift Card. When in doubt, you can always inquire with a friendly Cast Member at the restaurant.

    Character dining experiences are a great way to have your meal and meet characters too! Instead of waiting in line to meet characters or simply waving at them during a parade (which are still highly recommended), you can enjoy some much-needed air conditioning, classic Disney theming, delicious food, and some incredible character interactions all at once. And sometimes, there are some pretty rare characters with whom you can dine. For instance, Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is one of the only places you'll get to meet the Evil Queen, Dopey, and Grumpy. Also, you can meet Princess Tiana in her new Tiana's Bayou Adventure outfit at the recently reopened 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Just note that characters are subject to change.

    Liliana, say hello to those characters for me. And always be on the lookout for great discounts and offers for Florida residents like yourself! Reach out again if you have any other questions.
