    Hi! Love the panel! My question is can I use disney gift cards to pay the gratuity at all Disney restaurants, including the ones at Downtown Disney? Not a huge fan of carrying a lot of cash around the parks. Thanks in advance!!

    Hello, Emily,

    Thanks for the nice thoughts!  We love being able to help guests.  

    You shouldn't have any problems using a Disney gift card to pay for your entire meals, including the gratuities. I know we've travelled using Disney gift cards using them to pay for our meals and gratuities as well. 

    As for Downtown Disney, it looks like the Rainforest Cafe may be the only place where you have difficulty since they do not accept Disney gift cards (as well as McDonalds, JellyRolls, and the Richard Petty Driving Experience).

    On our most recent trip, I had Disney gift cards and actually just placed them on our room credit.  Then, I was able to just charge to our room. Just a thought if that is an option that would work for you.

    Thank you for visiting the 2012 Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  Please let us know if you have any further questions.
