One of the best presents you can ever receive is a Disney Gift Card to use on all kinds of food or merchandise in the parks or online!
Well, if you’ve got a lot of Disney Gift Cards laying around or connected on the Disney Gift Card website, there are some important changes coming soon that you need to know about.
On January 20th, 2021, the Disney Gift Card website (DisneyGiftCard.com) will be 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.
Because of this upgrade, however, all existing DisneyGiftCard.com 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.
While your gift card balance won’t change, any of the information about your gift cards that you had stored on the website will be deleted. The Disney Gift Card website specifically notes that your DisneyGiftCard.com account is not a mobile wallet and shouldn’t be considered or treated as one. You should ALWAYS keep your physical and digital Disney Gift Cards with you, as they are required to make a purchase.
So, here’s what you should do to make sure you’re prepared for this change:
- Collect 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 balance(s) 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 (the one that you use on shopDisney, My Disney Experience, etc.) or create a new account if needed; and
- Visit the My Cards section of the updated website to add or combine cards in your account.
It’s definitely important to get all of your Disney Gift Card information now in advance of the website update. We’ll keep an eye out for more details about this change, and let you know what we find.
