    I see people mentioning Disney gift cards. If I put money on these cards who takes them and if there is money left on them when we leave Disney how do we get our money off of them? where do you purchase them? How do they work, how much do they hold?

    Hi, Kelly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You can use Disney Gift Cards all over the Walt Disney World Resort, including the shops, snack carts and restaurants in the theme parks, some of the Downtown Disney area stores and restaurants, and at the resort hotel shops and dining locations. You can also use gift cards to purchase your theme park tickets. Buying a gift card in advance is a great way to build up your Walt Disney World trip fund and can be more convenient than carrying a large amount of cash with you while traveling. 

    The Disney Gift Card is available for purchase in any amount from $5 to $1,000 at select shops at the Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort and at Disney Store locations in the United States. Online, the Disney Gift Card can be purchased in a variety of preset dollar amounts ranging from $20 to $500.

    Once you purchase a Disney Gift Card for a specific amount or reload money onto an existing card, the money cannot be returned to you in cash or credited back to your bank account. However, the Disney Gift Card is accepted at Disney Store locations within the U.S.,,, and more, so there are many other ways to spend the remaining balance after leaving Walt Disney World.

    I hope this helps, Kelly, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to “The Most Magical Place on Earth!”  Please write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
