    Hello I am trying to by a disney egift card, when I go to checkout is asking me for a shipping adress , why is it asking for address y I want it just online?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Carla. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to see you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next week! How exciting. 

     I just love Disney Gift Cards. Having a Disney Gift Card in your wallet is like having a bit of pixie-dust! Using Disney Gift Cards to pay for purchases at the Walt Disney World Resort is a great way to budget for your vacation. 

     I didn't understand why your shipping address would be required to purchase a Disney Gift Card eGift, so I just did a little research to find out. When you visit the Disney Gift Card website and you select "Shop Cards," you're given an option to purchase Disney Gift Cards by Mail or Disney Gift Cards by Email. No matter which option you select, you're directed to the shopDisney website. I clicked on "Disney Gift Cards by Email" so that I could add a Disney Gift Card eGift to my shopDisney cart to find an answer to your question. Before completing the checkout process, there is some fine print that states that Disney Gift Card eGifts are usually sent to valid email addresses within 60 minutes, but may take up to 24 hours. You're right, though - as you begin the checkout process, you do need to enter a shipping address. I think that's just because "shipping" is the first of three steps in any checkout process on the shopDisney website. While you do need to enter your shipping address, you can rest assured that your Disney Gift Card eGift will be emailed to your email address, and not shipped to your home. 

     As you're counting down the days to your arrival, be sure to review the Know Before You Go section of the Walt Disney World Resort website. It has lots of important information about the health and safety measures that are being taken in and out of the theme parks!

     I hope this was helpful, Carla. I'm wishing you a magical Disney vacation!
