As of yesterday guests at the Walt Disney World Resort can now use digital Disney Gift Cards as a method of payment at select retail and dining locations. This new gift card will work just like the standard plastic gift cards. The digital gift card will need to be loaded onto a wallet application of their choice such as Go Wallet, Gyft or Passbook. We are hearing that these digital Disney Gift Cards can be used at any location a plastic gift card can be used but haven’t had a chance to check it out for ourselves yet.
And coming soon (very soon according to our information), guests will be able to download a new wallet application, YuDo by Disney, that can be used with these digital Disney Gift Cards as well. This new app will allow parents to see where and how their children are shopping.
A few things to keep in mind about these digital Disney Gift Cards:
- The plastic gift card must still be purchased and then added onto the app of your choice to use.
- Digital gift cards should be redeemed in the same way plastic gift cards are currently used; Cast Members will scan the barcode on your wallet app to complete your transaction.
- Digital Disney Gift Cards can be used in conjunction with any discounts available, including Cast Member and Passholder discounts.
