    Hi team, If I purchase gift cards over the next 3-4years to pay for tickets and hotels would this be ok? Will Walt Disney ever stop allowing these purchases with gift cards? Also, can they be used for onsite parking?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Shianne! 

    Thank you for stopping by with a great question about Disney Gift Cards! It is a pleasure to assist you as you plan a visit The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    As a fellow international Guest, purchasing Disney Gift Cards is one of my favorite ways to save money while planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I usually buy Disney eGift Cards and add them to my Disney Gift Card account online to manage them. 

    You are welcome to use your electronic gift cards in advance to pay for Disney Resort hotel reservations and theme park tickets, which is what I sometimes do. Upon arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort, I purchase a physical card, add it to my Disney Gift Card account online and transfer balances from the electronic gift cards to the physical card as needed. You are also welcome to keep your electronic gift cards in your digital wallet.

    planDisney tip: I also use Disney Gift Cards to pay for meals and merchandise while visiting Mickey, as they are accepted at most dining and merchandise locations at the Walt Disney World Resort. In addition, you can also pay for theme park parking with your gift card.

    I hope this information is helpful, Shianne! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help!
