Mom and daughter shopping

    Bill from NY Asked

    Hello again, since we are frequent visitors to Disney World, most of our gifts from relatives, are in the form of gift cards. Can they be used the same as cash through out the World, restaurants, gift shops, etc.? Any exceptions?

    Hi Bill!

    Thanks for sending your questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The answer is yes, the Disney Gift Cards are widely accepted throughout the Walt Disney World Resort including the majority of the restaurants and shops. Where you may encounter issues would be at Disney Springs as not all vendors accept the Disney Gift Card as of yet. For more information on the redemption locations for your Disney Gift Card by visiting this page: Disney Gift Cards - Where to Use. Another option is that if you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can charge dining and other purchases to your room account and upon check out, you can use the Disney Gift Card to pay the balance on your hotel account. For me, this is the easiest way since I use my MagicBand to charge all expenses and not have to worry about carrying my wallet with me. Simple and easy!

    Did you know?: The Walt Disney World Resort has some great offers on Disney Resort Rooms! For more information, please visit: Special Offers and Deals.

     It has been a pleasure assisting you! Please feel free to send in any other questions you may have.
