    I am taking some older kids and young kids alike. I want to give them Disney gift cards to be able to eat and buy things when they are not with us. Can they use Disney gift cards for mobile ordering and at most food/snack places?

    Hi Amanda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for bringing such an excellent question our way!

    I love the  idea of the kids in your party using Disney Gift Cards to pay for food while visiting the Disneyland Resort. It’s a great way to help them stay on track with their food budget and it can be more convenient than giving them cash.

    I use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering every time I visit. It’s so convenient to place an order in the Disneyland App while I’m walking to a dining location. Once I arrive, I select the “Prepare My Order” button and wait for the text alert that my order is ready for pickup. Plus my Annual Passholder Discount is automatically applied. Unfortunately, Mobile Food & Beverage Orders must be placed with a credit or debit card as Disney Gift Cards are not a supported method of payment at this time. But, a Disney Gift Card may still be used to place a traditional order with a Cast Member at most Quick Service and Table Service dining locations. Some carts and other outdoor merchandise vendors, as well as merchants not owned by Disney, may not be able to accept the Disney Gift Card. Not sure if the Disney Gift Card will be accepted? Simply ask a Cast Member before making your purchase!

    I hope this helps! Enjoy your time at the Disneyland Resort and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions!
