Coming on January 20th, 2021, the Disney Gift Card website ( is being upgraded. Once the updates is live, you'll be able to use your existing Disney account to log in, using the same information you use to log in to multiple Disney websites including shopDisney, My Disney Experience, and more. Overall this is a change that will benefit guests but there are a couple of hoops that you may need to jump through to be assured you have full access to your funds.

Because of this upgrade, however, all existing account details (logins and gift cards added) will no longer be available after January 19, 2021. Any Disney Gift Cards you have saved to the existing website will NOT transfer over to the new one. Instead, all current account information will be deleted and won't be available. You'll need access to your Disney Gift Cards, including the full 16-digit account number and EAN to add your cards to the updated website once the change occurs.

The balance on your gift cards won't change due to these updates, however a account is not a mobile wallet and the information about your gift cards that you had stored on the website will be deleted.

It's worth noting here that when using Disney Gift Cards you should always keep both physical and digital Disney Gift Cards with you, as they are required to make a purchase.

Be prepared for DisneyGiftCard.scom changes by following these steps:

  • Gather up all of your Disney Gift Cards (both physical and digital), and make sure you have access to their FULL 16-digit account numbers and EANs so you can upload them to the new website;
  • If you no longer have the card that you saved to the Disney Gift Card website, you'll need to transfer the balances to a Gift Card that you do have available. If you don't have another card to transfer your balance to, you can contact Disney Gift Card Services and provide the original gift card proof of purchase;
  • Once the new website launches on January 20th, log in to the updated site using your existing Disney account (that's your MyDisney Experience Account) or create a new account if needed; and
  • Visit the My Cards section of the updated website to add or combine your Disney Gift cards into your account.

Yes, it's a little bit of a rigmarole to go through, however in the long run an easier connection of your gift cards to your MyDisneyExperience will probably allow you easier access to spending money on your Walt Disney World Vacation.
