    Are there any places in Disney World, including Disney Springs, that DO NOT accept Disney gift cards?

    Hi Liz!

    Using Disney Gift Cards for your purchases throughout the Walt Disney World Resort is a great way to save and budget for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  Luckily, Disney Gift Cards can be used at most retail and dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including Disney Springs!  

    That being said, some carts or outdoor merchandise vendors may not be able to accept Disney Gift Cards, but this is usually because they can only accept cash.  Generally, all Disney owned and operated locations that can accept credit cards will also accept Disney Gift Cards.  Of course, whether or not businesses owned and operated by third parties will accept Disney Gift Cards is subject to change, but in my experience, you should not have any problems using Disney Gift Cards during your vacation!  

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can also charge your purchases back to your room using your MagicBand, and then go to the Front Desk to use your Disney Gift Cards to pay for your purchases.  Just remember, if you choose to do this, you will need to visit the Front Desk before your on-file credit card is charged, which is usually either the evening before you check out or when you reach your room-charge limit (whichever comes first).  If you have any questions or concerns, the Cast Members at the Front Desk will be happy to help!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
