    We are planning on visiting in May for my son's 8th birthday. He is very excited about going shopping at Downtown Disney on his birthday. Do the stores there take Disney GIft Cards? Also, how much time should I plan to spend there? Thanks!

    Hi Adelle,

    May is a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World, and sounds like the perfect time for you to celebrate your son's birthday!  You'll be happy to hear that most of the stores at Downtown Disney accept the Disney Gift Cards.  We typically spend an entire afternoon at the Marketplace and rarely venture over to the West Side. 

    If you are looking to tie the shopping trip in with some dining, T-Rex Cafe would be a fantastic place for a birthday celebration!

    Hope this helps, have a great trip!
