    Can you pay for your whole trip with Disney gift cards? As in can I pay for my stay at a Disney hotel with a Disney gift card.

    Welcome to planDisney, Danielle! It's great to talk with a fellow resident of the Keystone state!

    Danielle, while I wouldn't want to be Jack Sparrow and boast about my greatness, I will share that over the years, I have become a Disney Gift Card expert and am here to help you realize your Disney dreams. 

    First, Danielle, I'm happy to report that you ARE able to use a Disney Gift Card to pay for your Disney Resort Hotel stay. If you have a packaged vacation (your Disney Resort Hotel stay and theme park tickets are bundled together) you are also able to use your Disney Gift Cards on that balance. To do this, begin by logging into your My Disney Experience account. Danielle, my family and I also use our Disney Gift Cards for all of our dining (both Quick-Service and Table-Service reservations) and for souvenirs all around the Walt Disney World Resort. I like to designate one or two cards that we keep safely in our wallet (even after balances have been cleared) that are our "vacation cards." We then transfer the balance of any newly purchased cards to those cards so everything is in one place. You can manage all of your cards on the Disney Gift Card website

    Danielle, I will also share that in the months leading up to our Walt Disney World vacation, I kindly let grandparents and extended family know that Disney Gift Cards make great Christmas and birthday gifts for everyone in our traveling party. It's also been helping my kids learn about budgeting, so... bonus! 

    Danielle, whatever else is on your agenda for your upcoming trip, I hope you have a Magical stay. Please come on back and see us here at planDisney with any other questions you might have. 
    We are all EARS,
