    Hello! We are taking our kids to Disney in April and for Christmas wanted to get them either Disney Gift Cards or Disney Dollars to use at the Park. Which one is a better option? Can those be used for things like the Bibbity Boppity Bootique?

    Hello Amy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    In my opinion, giving the gift of Disney Gift Cards is a great way to start spreading the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I prefer Disney Gift Cards over Disney Dollars because the only way to get Disney Dollars in advance is to pay a significant shipping fee. If you select standard shipping from the Disney Gift Card website, they ship for free. On the website there are many cute card designs to choose from. 

    If card design doesn't matter to you, I will let you in on a little secret... one of the big box "club" stores (rhymes with hams club!) often offers a small discount on the gift cards.  

    Nearly every place on the Disney property, including the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, accept both Disney Gift Cards and Disney Dollars. I, personally, have never found a place that wouldn't accept them as form of payment.

    I hope this helps with your planning!  See ya real soon,
