    Hi! We have recieved gift cards to use on our trip to Disney in October. Are we able to use them to purchase tickets? Thanks in advance! We are getting excited.. is it October yet!?

    Hi there, Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm glad you stopped by with your question!

    Sarah, I completely understand the feeling of having to wait for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! The days tend to go by so slowly, especially the closer you get to the trip! I’ll tell you something that helps me when I’m (albeit impatiently) waiting for my trips: planning it all! I love to research my trips to Walt Disney World Resort. I plan for all the delectable Mickey-shaped snacks I’m going to eat, the FastPass+ selections I’m going to make, which merchandise I’m going to purchase (because one can never have too many Disney mugs), and so much more! I can see you're off to a great start because you've made your way to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I have great news for you! You can use your Disney Gift Cards to purchase your Theme Park Tickets and so much more on your vacation! I save up all the Disney Gift Cards I receive during special occasions like my birthday and Christmas, so I can use them during my vacations!

    Although there are some carts and merchandise vendors that may not be able to accept the gift card, I use my Disney Gift Cards to pay for my Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservations, as well as Theme Park tickets and dining. You can always ask a Cast Member before you make your purchase if they accept Disney Gift Cards. According to DisneyGiftCard.com, you may use the gift cards towards “admission tickets, annual passes, hotel rooms, spa experiences, merchandise, dining, and recreation. This includes Disney owned-and-operated locations and select locations not owned by Disney.”

    I love to keep things organized and making an account at DisneyGiftCard.com has been a game changer for me. It allows you to combine your Disney Gift Cards in any denomination to a single card with a value of up to $1000. You can also transfer balances! I once lost one of my Disney Gift Cards (terrible, I know!) and was able to transfer all the funds from the lost card to another one! I will forever be grateful to technology because of it!

    Fall is such a wonderful time to go to Walt Disney World Resort! I absolutely love the fall decorations all over the Theme Parks! Because you’re going in October, I encourage you to look up my favorite special-ticketed event, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! There is a special fireworks show, along with Disney characters, and my personal favorite, Boo-to-You Halloween Parade! It is such a spook-tacular time!

    Sarah, I hope you have the most magical vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
