    I received 50 $100 gift cards and merged them to 5 different $1000 gift cards in the Disney gift card app. Now I am trying to pay off my hotel balance of $5000. How do I redeem these gift cards to pay the hotel balance?

    Hiya Stephen! 

    Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for bringing your excellent question our way. I’m elated to hear you’re gearing up to visit Walt Disney World Resort. One of my very favorite parts of my magical vacation is choosing the perfect Disney Resort hotel for my family. Each Resort hotel is unique in its own way; my family loves exploring the activities offered, like Movies Under the Stars and splashing around in the pools. 

    Stephen, you’re already ahead of the game by creating a profile on the Disney Gift Card website and combining your gift cards. Because the Disney Gift Card website is not a form of payment, you’ll want to keep the 5 Disney Gift Cards you have loaded your funds onto. These Disney Gift Cards all have an Account Number and an EAN, which you’ll need while making your payments. 

    I once lost my main Disney Gift Card that I use as my form of payment, but luckily, since I had it stored on the Disney Gift Card website, I was able to purchase a new $25 Disney Gift Card and transfer the funds I had loaded onto the new card. It was such a relief to have that as an option!

    The Walt Disney World Resort website allows Guests to pay using one Disney Gift Card and not multiple; however, no worries. If you need to pay using multiple cards, you’re welcome to call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations, and a friendly Cast Member can take your payment using the five cards over the phone. I’ve done this a few times myself! 

    If you have already booked a Vacation Package and are looking to make payments towards your balance online and would like to chip away at the balance, you can do so by following these steps below:

    -Head to the Walt Disney World Resort website and locate and hover over the My Disney Experience logo on the top right corner. 
    -From the drop-down menu, select My Plans.
    -Locate your upcoming Disney Resort hotel reservation. You should see your confirmation number, remaining balance, and a blue Make a Payment link underneath your hotel information.
    -You will want to select this link and then choose the option to pay using a Disney Gift Card to process your payment.

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Stephen!
