Unique Ways To Spend Your Disney Gift Card

Disney Gift Card

If you’ve ever been the lucky recipient of a Disney gift card, you might have wondered where you should spend it. There are many unique and entertaining ways you can use your Disney gift card that you might not know about! Read on for some ideas.

Disney Outlet Stores

If you want to stretch your dollar when spending your Disney gift card, then head on down to a Disney-owned outlet store! In the Orlando area, there are two “Disney Character Warehouse” locations (in the Orlando Premium Outlets and Orlando Premium International Outlets). Here, you can find officially licensed Disney merchandise that has been relocated from Disney World and reduced in price for sale. Markdowns can be significant, making these stores a great place to snag a deal.

Merchandise often includes seasonal items (e.g., Christmas merchandise after the holidays have passed), clothing, costumes, toys, and home goods – so grab your gift card and head on down to the outlet for some discount shopping!

runDisney Events

runDisney marathons have become some of the most popular events held in Disney World. runDisney events are themed and often include special character meet-and-greets, activities, collectible medals and more. They also offer a chance to see Disney World as you never have before, running a planned marathon course throughout your favorite parks. And in 2024, runDisney events will be returning to Disneyland Resort as well! 

You may not know that you can use your Disney gift card to pay for your registration fees! Just make sure that the gift card has a sufficient balance to cover the cost of the registration fee that you are paying.

Disney Spas

If you are seeking a little rest and relaxation, a Disney World spa is the perfect place to use your Disney gift card. Book a luxurious service at The Grand Floridian Spa or Senses Spa at Saratoga Springs Resort such as a massage, facial, body treatment or mani/pedi! After all, a gift card should be to treat yourself!
