    We're planning our next Disney Trip for March 2017 this time around we're going to start buying DisneyGiftCards in advance hoping this will help us stick to our budget. Are we able to use the Disneygiftcards in Disney Springs(Downtown Disney)

    Hi Danielle,

    I love a good plan and you definitely have a good plan! Purchasing Disney Gift Cards in advance is a great way to save money on a Walt Disney World vacation.

    I'm happy to say that many retailers and restaurants can accept Disney Gift Cards at Disney Springs, though not all. My recommendation is to have another payment option as a back up for those locations that can't accept this form of payment.

    And so you get the most use out of your gift cards, you can always apply them to your Resort hotel charges if you stay in a Disney Resort hotel.

    Let us know if we can help you with anything else as you plan, Danielle. Wishing you a magical March vacation in 2017!

    Happy planning,

    Andrea U.
