Disney Gift Cards are the perfect way to bring a little magic into someone’s life, or save some money on your next Disney vacation. Whether it’s to show appreciation, celebrate a special occasion, help you stay on a budget, or get a little savings for yourself, Disney Gift Cards are always a great purchase. These cards can be used to pay for almost any Disney purchase, including park tickets, hotel rooms, food, souvenirs, and more.
If you’re considering purchasing a Disney Gift Card for yourself or someone else, here’s everything you need to know about purchasing them at a discount, using them, and managing your Disney Gift Cards easily online!
How To Purchase Discounted Disney Gift Cards
Disney Gift Cards are available at many grocery stores and retailers in denominations ranging from $15 to $500. You can also purchase them online through DisneyGiftCard.com or the Shop Disney app.
Although there are many places to purchase Disney gift cards, there are places and ways to purchase them that will give you a discount on the face value of the card. These discounts can range from 5-10% off face value, so it’s worth keeping an eye out if you’re looking to get a great deal.
|Target||5%||Payment with red card required – debit card option available|
|Sam’s Club||4%||Sam’s Club membership required – pay with any payment method accepted|
|BJ’s Wholesale||4%||BJ’s membership required – pay with any payment method accepted|
|Gift Card Discount Websites||1-2%||Sites like Raise.com or CardCash.com – pay with any payment method accepted|
Combining Credit Card Rewards With Discounted Disney Gift Card
One popular method for getting the maximum discount possible would be to combine credit card rewards with the retailer discounts listed above. Some credit cards can offer a cash back reward of 1-5%, but you want to double check to make sure your Gift Card purchase qualifies for the highest possible reward.
While Target offers the highest initial discount, keep in mind that you are required to use a Red Card, which will prevent you from using other credit card rewards on top of the initial discount.
Combining Discounted Disney Gift Cards With Other Discounts
On top of the possible 8-9% savings that is possible when combining credit card rewards with discounted Disney Gift Cards, when you go to pay for things at certain locations, you could still be entitled to other discounts such as annual passholder discounts, Disney Vacation Club member discounts, Florida resident discounts, among other possible discounts.
This could mean getting up to 20% taken right off the top of your bill, then paying with a discounted gift card, which just further increases your ability to save on your next Disney trip!
How To Check Your Disney Gift Card Balance
If you’re unsure of your balance, it is easy to check online. Just head on over to DisneyGiftCard.com/checkbalance and enter in the 16 digit card number, 4 digit security code which can be found on the back of your physical Disney Gift Card, or listed on your eGift confirmation email. Once those steps are completed, you should be able to view your balance right away.
If you’re planning on making purchases at a physical location, you can also ask the cashier to check your balance prior to completing a transaction.
How To Transfer Funds Between Disney Gift Cards
If have purchased multiple Disney Gift Cards, you may want to combine them for convenience and portability, or to use them to pay your Disney Vacation Club annual dues. If that’s the case, you can easily transfer funds between your various cards online at DisneyGiftCard.com/managecards. Let’s walk you through the steps with screenshots to make it super easy for you!
How To Check Transaction History
If you need to view a past transaction made with a Disney Gift Card, it is easy to do so online. Simply login to your account, and click the “Transaction History” button next to any previously added gift cards.
You can then see a listing of all your past transactions, which will look like the image below:
