    I am working on some planning for a family trip in June. We are not staying on property, but some of my family have asked about using Visa Gift Cards as a payment method on the MDE app. Can you save gift cards as a payment method on the MDE app?

    Hey Angie! A warm welcome to planDisney! I'm super excited to have you here with us, and I'd love to help you out today. Let's dive in?

    The My Disney Experience app is an absolute must-have when you're at the parks. Not only can you use it to find the nearest bathroom or check out wait times for your favorite rides, but you can also use the Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering feature to order food and snacks from anywhere in the park. As a parent with hungry little ones, I know how important it is to have quick access to food options. 

    Now, when it comes to paying for your app purchases, you should know that only credit or debit cards can be saved on your app. But the good news is that you can use Disney Gift Cards to pay for your food, drinks, and even merchandise purchases! To use your gift card, just select "Use a Different Payment Method" on the Order Summary/Payment page, then add your 16-digit card number. It's super easy. You will need to enter the number for each purchase, so I save the Gift Card number on the Notes app on my phone so I can quickly copy and paste it anytime I need.

    Once you get used to it, this added step will be quick and work like magic. Trust me.

    I hope you found all of this helpful, Angie! And here's a little extra tidbit for you: You can filter restaurants that accept mobile orders using the My Disney Experience website or app. It's a great way to see all your options in one place. 

    Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions. It's always a pleasure to help out a friend like you.
