    can i purchase an annual pass with Disney gift cards?

    Hi Lisa,
    So glad you stopped in to join us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You're thinking of becoming a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder? Cue all the cheering! I've had an Annual Pass for many years and just love all the fantastic benefits that Disney has set aside for me as an Annual Passholder.

    I'm really glad to tell you that yes, you may pay for your Annual Pass using Disney Gift Cards. I would recommend that if you happen to have multiple cards in small denominations that you combine them into one card with a value of up to $1,000 on the Disney Gift Cards website. I love buying gift cards during my everyday shopping to help me save for my upcoming Walt Disney World vacations; the Disney Gift Card site helps me combine them so I don't have to carry dozens of cards with me when I travel.

    Lisa, I'm sure you have done your research, but I just wanted to share some of the fantastic additional benefits (aside from unlimited theme park admission) that come with your Annual Pass. Free theme park parking is one of my favorites; we drive in quite often and love having our parking included.  Free PhotoPass downloads are another favorite-we make all sorts of funny faces on our attraction photos and love being able to download them to our heart's content.  I love being able to have all of our family in the photos as well-we never have to pick a photographer because Disney has fantastic photographers throughout the parks.  Also, the magic photos are so much fun!  I love getting discounts on select theme park merchandise as well as in select restaurants.

    Here's to many wonderful memories with your new Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
