    Hi, just wondering if it’s possible to use visa gift cards inside the park for food and souvenirs etc. also is it possible to add the cards to the Disney app?

    Hi Cathy! Thanks for dropping by planDisney.

    The good news is that your prepaid gift card will be accepted throughout the Disneyland Resort and Downtown Disney District. This can be a great way to pay for souvenirs and food, while you're enjoying your visit, and be a handy way to budget.

    The ability to add a method of payment to the Disneyland mobile app is certainly convenient as well. To add a new payment method, scroll down on the app's welcome page to "My Profile." In your account, select "Payment Method" and click "Add a Payment Method."

    If you have difficulty adding your card as a method of payment for any reason, your alternative would be to purchase a Disney Gift Card from one of the shops using your prepaid card. I've used Disney Gift cards to budget for my purchases while at the Disneyland Resort. Just know that you can't save the Disney Gift Card as a method of payment, but you can save the number in the notes app on your mobile device and copy and paste it into the app when it is time to make your payment. Disney Gift Cards can also be used to pay for purchases on shopDisney and never expire.

    One of my family's favorite places to shop is Star Wars Trading Post in Downtown Disney District. If your family are Star Wars fans too, maybe put it on your must-do list.

    Have a magical time!
