    Hello Samaida!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    I have recently visited the most magical place on earth, and for the first time I had the chance of using Disney Gift Cards to pay for our expenses. We had a great experience because they are conveniently accepted throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, and can be used to pay for dining, merchandise, recreation, admission tickets, hotel reservations, and even spa experiences.

    While there is no official list of participating locations, we were able to use our gift cards at Disney owned and operated venues where credit cards are accepted, so please note that some carts and outdoor vendors may not be able to accept them. My suggestion is to always check with a Cast Member before making your purchase, but I can say we used our cards at Disney Springs, at Disney Resort hotels, and especially at the theme parks for dining, merchandise, and to pay for our daughter’s pirate transformation at The Pirates League at Magic Kingdom Park. As a Guest staying at a Disney Resort hotel I also used my MagicBand as a method of payment, and then visited Front Desk the night before check-out to pay for our expenses with a Disney Gift Card.

    Thank you so much for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Samaida! I hope this helps you while planning and that you continue to stop by, we are delighted to help.

    Best magical wishes,
