Disney gift cards are accepted at almost every single restaurant, resort and merchant on Walt Disney World property. The only ones I have found that do not accept gift cards are cash merchants (like the ones that sell the light up toys before the parade or the balloons at the park entrance). I have used Disney gift cards to pay for my package before I arrive, tickets, souvenirs, meals, etc.
I still add a credit card to my resort reservation for MagiBand charging privileges. They won’t charge the credit card until it either reaches $500 in charges or the day before you check out. I stop by the front desk every few days during our trip and pay off the balance with the gift cards. This way I do not have to carry a ton of gift cards in the park with me.
Disney gift cards do not expire and they do not charge you a fee no matter how long you wait to use the card.
So next time you see a perk on a Disney gift card, don’t hesitate to take advantage of it.
