    Hi We are planning a surprise Christmas family trip to Disneyland &instead of gifts we want to give gift cards so the kids can shop while on vacation. We are from Canada -can we still buy the giftcards online and are they good in both CA and DLR?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I actually reached out to a previous Canadian panelist, Trish, to make sure to get you a correct answer straight from a fellow Canuck!

    You have two different options when purchasing Disney Gift Cards from Canada. If you purchase them from a local Canadian Disney Store or store that sells Disney Gift Cards, your value will be in Canadian dollars. If you purchase them online your value will be in United States dollars. Either way you'll be able to use them anywhere that Disney Gift Cards are accepted. If you purchase in Canadian dollars and use them at Disneyland Resort, an automatic conversion will take place on the funds. There is no additional fee and the rate used is the previous day market close exchange rate. If you plan on using them mostly at The Happiest Place on Earth, I would recommend purchasing them in US dollars just for simplicity of knowing your balance!

    Either way, make sure to register your Disney Gift Cards online using your Disney account. This allows you to track your balance, review charges and even combine cards if necessary. I hope this helps in planning your upcoming visit! Please come back if you have any questions before your Christmas visit!

My name is Lindsey and I'm a wife, mommy, engineer and self-proclaimed "Disnerd!" I've always loved Disney and the joy it brings to so many people. I've been to Disney more times than I can count, but I found an even greater passion for all things Disney after discovering runDisney events. There is no better motivation to train for a race than a trip to the most magical place on earth! Learn More About Lindsey
