  • Disney Gift Card

    Query: Can the Disney "Gift Cards" be used literally "throughout the resort"? (Like it says in the Guide maps.)

    I'm guessing you can definitely use them in the retail shops in both parks. But can you use them in the food places? In the restaurants? Fries carts? Popcorn carts? Chuuuurrrros?

    In the Disney property Hotels? Can I get my Mickey Mouse back massage and facial on my Gift Card?

    How about in Downtown Disney? Do the third party vendors in DTD mall accept them? ESPN Zone? House of Blues? Jamba Juice? La BREEEEEA?

    Just how widespread is this accepted?

    DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.

    The ODV carts(Popcorn, Churros, etc) unfortunately do not take the gift cards as a form of tender.

      But they do take Disney Dollars. I wonder if you can trade a gift card for Disney Dollars at city hall?

          Hope this answers the rest of the question.

            Once they are bought they can be exchanged for US Dollars according to the sites.

              LOL So you go to DL and exchange your USDs for DLDs and then when you're in the park you get USDs in change? Seems a bit pointless?

                Indeed it does...
                "At the DisneylandDisney Gift Card can be redeemed at select merchandise, food, ticketing, parking and Guest Service locations, all well as DisneylandDowntown DisneyWorld of DisneyDowntown Disney"
                So hardly anywhere in DLR. But...
                "
                At the Walt Disney WorldDisney Gift Card can be redeemed at select merchandise, food, ticketing and Guest Service locations, select third party lessees and Downtown DisneyDisney Gift Card can be redeemed towards payment of a Walt Disney WorldDisney Gift CardDisney Gift Card is not accepted, at McDonalds"
                In WDW you can use it all over the resort. How annoying.

                And finally...
                "The Disney Gift Card may not be used towards the purchase of any Disney Dollars or gift certificates/cards."
                Oh noes!

                Shame.

                  Just something more to make the "Disney" experience and for the collector.

                  Here's a little history behind the Disney Dollars.
                  It used to be for Castmembers only.

                  Sadly the card loactions are pretty limited where they can be used.
                  Make sure you wrap a quote tag for that information or link it.

                    I keep putting money on them and then using them up soley for the card so I can put it in my scrapbook. I have a disney dollar left somewhere too. I really like the idea of "disney currency" it makes the trip all the more special

                        At the top, it says you can use it for paying for lodging. Basically, it isn't usable in DTD at non-Disney properties, like Rainforest. You can use it anywhere in the park a credit card is accepted (which is why the ODV carts can't take it.) I dont get why Taste Pilots can't take it though. The third party vendors (nonDisney) don't accept them. (Examples, the face painters, silohettes, etc...) Most places in DL and DCA, as well as the hotels and front gate takes the gift cards. They can't be used online yet.
                        If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

                          FYI, The Disney gift card can also be accepted at your local Disney Store.

                            Maybe Taste Pilots doesn't take it as their ordering system isn't equipped for it?

                            Yeah, it said DLH was ok but then it said that other part... I was confused!
                            Can you use it in the other two hotels as well?

                              The hotels all take the gift cards. The parking lots dont.
