    I have purchased Disney gift cards and attempted to purchase my tickets, but I must be doing something wrong. Is there an account I should create first?

    Hi Kym, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question! 

    Although Disney Gift Cards are a great way to pay for your Theme Park Tickets for your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort, that’s not the only thing you’ll need in order to proceed with your purchase. First, if you don’t already have a My Disney Experience account, you’ll need to create one. After that, please create a profile for each member of your travelling party so that they're part of your My Family & Friends list. That will make it easier to link any tickets you purchase to each person’s profile more easily. 

    Then, you’ll be ready to purchase your Theme Park Tickets. You’ll be able to input your Disney Gift Card numbers when you get to the final screen, which includes credit card and other payment information. 

    Your My Disney Experience account will also allow you to manage every part of your visit to Walt Disney World Resort, including hotel information, dining reservations and even FastPass+ selections. And don’t forget that there’s a great smartphone app too, which you can use “on the go” during your upcoming visit. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. We’re here to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
