    I am traveling to Disney with my girlfriend to Disney World on June. Do all of the dining restaurants/food spots accept American Express cards as method of payment? Are there places that don’t accept credit cards? Thanks!

    Hello Hector!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question!

    I am happy to share with you that credit cards are widely accepted as a form of payment throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. I have never had any issues using my American Express credits cards at Disney Resort hotels, dining and merchandise locations, as well as outdoor vendors and carts. I live in Brazil, and I understand that sometimes some businesses in Latin America do not accepted American Express, but that is definitely not the case in the United States, so you should have no problems using your card. I do, however, always bring a second card with me, usually a Visa or MasterCard, just to make sure that I have a second option.

    Hector, I am excited to hear that you will be bringing your girlfriend for a getaway! Have you already planned some romantic experiences for your princess? I highly recommend making dining reservations at one of my favorite restaurants, California Grill, located at the top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Time your reservation right and you will be able to surprise her with dinner while enjoying Happily Ever After fireworks from the restaurant! How about a massage for two at Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa? Another unforgettable experience is taking her for a fireworks cruise to enjoy IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please stop by real soon if you have additional questions.

    Best magical wishes,
