    Can I pay for a meal at the Rainforest Cafe at Disney Springs with a Disney Gift Card? I saw a post from 2009 that said no and one from 2012 that said yes. What is the correct answer for 2017?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Alex! 

    I love seeing questions from fellow South Carolinians!

    Once upon a time, in the jungles of the Rainforest Cafe® at Disney Springs™ and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, guests could not use Disney Gift Cards or the Disney Dining Plan.

    Fortunately, this policy changed and now you can absolutely use a Disney Gift Card to pay for your meal at Rainforest Cafe®. They also accept the Disney Dining Plan, if you're considering adding that to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package.

    You are good-to-go to use your gift card during your 2017 visit to this unique dining location. I hope you enjoy your expedition.
