If you’re holding on to your Disney Gift Cards, you’re going to want to read this!
Disney Gift Cards are a STAPLE in many a Disney-goers bag, whether they got them as a gift or they’re using them as a budgeting tool. You might remember that Disney announced BIG changes to the Disney Gift Card website and now those changes have been delayed. Here’s what that means for YOU.
The Disney Gift Card website (DisneyGiftCard.com) was scheduled for a major update on January 20th. Now, the update has been delayed and will take place on February 3rd.
Once the update is live, you’ll be able to use your existing Disney account to log in, using the same information that you use to access most other Disney websites including shopDisney, My Disney Experience, and more.
Because of this upgrade, all existing DisneyGiftCard.com account details (logins AND gift cards added) will be unavailable after February 2nd. Any Disney Gift Cards you have saved to the existing website will NOT transfer over to the updated site. All current account information will be deleted and won’t be available.
You’ll need access to your physical Disney Gift Cards, including the full 16-digit account number and EAN to add your cards to the updated website once the change occurs. Your balance WILL NOT change as this information becomes unavailable and Disney advises that you keep your physical and digital Disney Gift Cards with you, as they are required to make a purchase.
As a reminder, here’s what you need to do to make sure you’re prepared for the update:
- 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(s) 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, 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.
- Visit the My Cards section of the updated website to add or combine cards in your account.
This is a pretty big change and we want to make sure you’re ready for it! You have through early February to pull that gift card info together! As always, stay tuned to DFB for the latest updates!
