    I thought it might be fun and exciting to start collecting Disney gift cards for our next trip in the future. Is it practical to do tat even if the trip is years away? Thanks!

    Hello there, Anthony! 

    Welcome, and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. I’m so happy to hear that you want to plan a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. It’s never too soon to start dreaming about your next magical vacation!

    I think buying Disney Gift Cards in advance is a wonderful way to build up your trip fund, Anthony! Bringing gift cards can also be more convenient than carrying a large amount of cash with you while traveling or relying on credit cards that may come with additional interest fees. You can even combine several gift card balances onto just one card by creating an account at Registering your gift cards online is also a smart way to protect your money in case a card is ever misplaced because it gives you the ability to move the funds to another card in your possession. This is especially important if you plan to save the gift cards over a long period of time.

    The Disney Gift Card can be used to purchase almost everything Disney-related, like Walt Disney World Resort tickets, hotel stays, merchandise, and dining all over the resort. You can also pay with a Disney Gift Card when buying your favorite theme park snacks at outdoor food carts. 

    I hope this information helps, Anthony, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted vacation in the future!  Please write back with any other questions you may have as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
