    I just received a Disney gift card. When I went to peel the sticker off covering the 16 digit code, it ripped the ink off so I can’t see all of the numbers. Do employees need to see/enter the numbers or can they swipe the card & it will charge it?

    Hi there, Melissa!  You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    You'll always find some Disney Gift Cards in my park bag when I visit Disneyland Resort.  Disney Gift Cards can be used for most purchases such as theme park tickets, souvenirs in retail shops, and food at dining locations throughout Disneyland Resort and other Disney vacation destinations.  As my family and I count down to a Disney vacation, I often buy a Disney Gift Card for each of my kids so that they have a souvenir budget to stick to.  In fact, purchasing Disney Gift Cards is a great way for adults to set aside some spending money for a Disneyland Resort visit as well.

    If you plan to use your Disney Gift Card for any online purchases, you'll need to be able to read all of the numbers on the card in order to enter the code for your purchase.  Sometimes Disneyland Resort Cast Members can simply swipe a gift card, but they also may need to enter those numbers when you're making a purchase in person at the parks.  I recommend using the "Contact Us" page on the Disney Gift Card website to reach out to a Disney Gift Card Cast Member.  They should be able to get your issue straightened out for you before your visit to Disneyland Resort.

    Melissa, as you get ready to visit The Happiest Place on Earth, please reach out to us if you have any other questions.  My fellow planDisney panelists and I are all ears!  See ya real soon!
