Do Disney Gift Cards Expire?
Here is the direct answer from ShopDisney: “No, the Disney Gift Card you purchased or received is valid for purchases until all remaining funds have been depleted from the card.”. Therefore, the answer is no Disney Gift Cards do NOT expire. Which makes them great to use to save for Disney!
Why Should I Use Disney Gift Cards to save?
In addition to not expiring, there are many uses for Disney gift cards. These include using the gift cards to pay for your Disney Resort Package including your room and park tickets. Plus, having the money stashed on Disney gift cards (versus cash) it assures the money is used for Disney and not tempted to spend elsewhere.
Where can I use Disney gift cards at Disney World?
Disney Gift Cards are almost as good as cash at Disney World, meaning they can be used virtually anywhere! The select exclusions include balloon vendors and any non-Disney owned restaurants or shops (which are very limited). I have never encountered an issue. Use your Disney gift cards for shopping at most retail locations such as World of Disney at Disney Springs. Also use them to pay for various dining options from table-service to snacks and more, or even a spa experience at Senses.
Where Should I Buy Disney Gift Cards?
A popular option to buy Disney Gift Cards is at Target using your Target Red Card (debit or credit) to automatically save 5% off. This savings does add up over thousands of dollars! Other options include warehouse clubs such as BJ’s or Sam’s Club offering discounted Disney gift cards. Others head to ShopDisney to purchase gift cards with adorable Disney designs and characters (these are not discounted).
Can I Combine Disney Gift Cards?
