    We are planning a Disney World vacation in August. I was given a virtual disney gift card. Can I use this at Walt Disney World for meals?

    Hi Julie,

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel today. Glad to know you are planning a fun filled summer vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Disney Gift Cards are the perfect way to give a little bit of Magic. They are good for almost everything in Walt Disney World Resort, like merchandise, meals, snacks, and even paying for your stay at a Disney Resort hotel. But the fun doesn't end there. You can use them at Disney Store, Disneyland Resort and even Disney Cruise Line.

    And now, with eGift Cards, giving them is as easy as clicking a button. The Disney Parks Blog recently ran a story about them. Simply print or show the barcode from your mobile device at the checkout. I usually buy a few of them throughout the year and then use them towards paying our family vacations.

    One last tip: don't forget to make FastPass+ reservations for your trip 30 days in advance. Unless you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Then you can make them 60 days before arrival. Happy planning!
