    If we purchase a gift card instead of a dining card, can the gift card be used at all eating places?

    Hi, Lorraine!

    Welcome, and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. Hooray-- it sounds like you may be planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort soon!

    I have great news for you, Lorraine. The Disney Gift Card can be used to purchase almost everything Disney-related, like Disneyland Resort tickets, hotel stays, and merchandise. Yes, these magical gift cards can also be used at sit-down and quick-service dining locations in Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park! In addition, you can pay with a Disney Gift Card when buying your favorite theme park snacks and beverages at outdoor food carts. Please note that many of the restaurants and shops in the Downtown Disney District are owned by third-party companies, so they don’t accept the Disney Gift Card. However, you can pay with a Disney Gift Card at Downtown Disney District locations that are owned by Disney, such as Disney Home, Marceline's Confectionery, and World of Disney, to name a few.

    Buying a gift card in advance is a wonderful way to build up your trip fund and can be more convenient than carrying a large amount of cash with you while traveling. You can even combine several gift card balances onto just one card online by creating an account at disneygiftcard.com. Registering your gift cards online is also a smart way to protect your money in case a card is ever misplaced because it gives you the ability to move the funds to another card in your possession.

    I hope this helps, Lorraine, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!  Please write back with any other questions you may have as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
