    We are planning a trip for 2021. But we would like to add our disney gift cards to our account before finalizing our plans. For example, if you buy an amazon giftcard, you can load it to your account before final purchase. Is it possible for disney accts?

    Hi Heather,

    Welcome to planDisney!  Aren't Disney Gift Cards simply the best?  I love being able to "save up" for vacation by purchasing these little guys whenever I have a little extra in my budget.  And you can bet that Disney Gift Cards are always at the top of any of my wish lists.  I especially love how I can manage my Disney Gift Cards and I usually consolidate them into only a few cards.  

    You may use your Disney Gift Card as a form of payment for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package.  In order to do this you will enter your Disney Gift Card at checkout.  Unfortunately you cannot add them to your My Disney Experience Account prior to checkout.

    Once you are on vacation and are checked into your Disney Resort hotel, you can also take your Disney Gift Card to the front desk and have it applied to your account.  Just be sure that you only initially apply whatever amount you are sure you will use since the Resort hotel is unable to refund back to you anything that you do not use.  I have a friend who likes to visit the front desk daily to pay her Resort hotel charges using her Disney Gift Card, but I usually only visit once or twice myself.

    Heather, another nice feature of using Disney Gift Cards is you are now able to use them for Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering!  If you haven't ever used this service you should really try it.  Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering really has been a game changer for my family and saves us so much time.  I love being able to use the app to order and prepay for our food.  Then we just head to the "Mobile Order Pick Up" sign at the restaurant and it automagically appears!

    As you continue planning your family's Magical Disney vacation, please be sure to stop by and visit us again here at planDisney.  We are Disney fans, just like you, and are always excited to help you plan your adventure!

I fell in love with Walt Disney World on my very first visit, which took place during my honeymoon. Since then we have added 4 "mouseketeers" to our family and have come to appreciate what a great value a Walt Disney World vacation can be on a budget. As a Physical Therapist and a mom of a large family, I would love to help you plan your next magical trip! Learn More About Brenda
