    For my trip to Disneyland for the first time, I am getting a Disney Gift Card to cover the payments for meals. My question is, do all restaurants on the Disney property take Disney Gift Cards, including those at the hotels and Downtown Disney?

    Hi, Victoria!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m glad to hear you’re making plans for your first visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    You can use Disney Gift Cards at many locations around the Disneyland Resort, including the shops, snack carts and restaurants in the two theme parks, at the resort hotel shops and dining locations, and at some of the Downtown Disney District stores (such as World of Disney, Marceline’s Confectionery, Disney Home, The Disney Dress Shop, WonderGround Gallery, and Disney’s Pin Traders). You’ll need to pay with cash or a credit card at most Downtown Disney District restaurants. 

    Buying a gift card in advance is a wonderful way to build up your trip fund and can be more convenient than carrying a large amount of cash with you while traveling. You can even combine several gift card balances onto just one card by visiting disneygiftcard.com and providing the required account registration or login information. You'll then be able to save your Disney Gift Card information, check your balances, and transfer funds from one card to another. Registering your gift cards online is also a smart way to protect your money in case a card is ever lost or stolen. 

    I hope this helps, Victoria, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!  Please write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
