If you use the Disney Gift Card website as a sort of “digital wallet,” take note. BIG changes are coming to the site in January 2021. Here’s what you need to know about the changes coming to the Disney Gift Card website.
Big Changes Coming To The Disney Gift Card Website
If you make a habit of buying smaller denominations of Disney gift cards to save up for your next big Disney trip, you are probably familiar with the Disney Gift Card Website (disneygiftcard.com).
On this site, you can combine gift cards up to $1000.
You can also keep a primary gift card on file, and re-load it with the new cards frequently.
Using the site as a digital wallet of sorts has been a time-honored Disney hack for folks who prefer to pay for their vacations via gift cards.
But as with all things Disney: times are changing!
And the Disney Gift Card website is also changing a bit- for the better, it seems.
Here’s what you need to know about the changes coming to the Disney Gift Card website.
When Will The Disney Gift Card Website Change Happen?
Disney is giving us all a nice heads up on this one.
The shift will occur on January 20, 2021.
So you have until January 19 to collect the information you need and prepare for the change.
What Is Changing on the Disney Gift Card Site?
Aha- good question!
Here’s what we know:
- All existing DisneyGiftCard.com account details (logins and gift cards added) will no longer be available after January 19, 2021
- Once it goes live, the enhanced site will allow visitors to utilize their existing ‘Disney account’ to login; using the same login credentials across multiple Disney sites and apps including: shopDisney, My Disney Experience, WaltDisneyWorld.com and Disneyland.com.
What Do I Need To Do To Prepare For The Change?
The good news is that there’s not a lot you need to do to get ready for the Disney Gift Card website shift.
Disney just wants to make sure you know what you currently have stored, and to keep that information handy once January 19 rolls around.
- Have access to your Disney Gift Card(s), including your full 16-digit account number and EAN to add your card(s) onto the updated website.
- Starting January 20, 2021, please visit DisneyGiftCard.com to create a new account, or use your existing Disney account login, and enter your gift card(s) information into the My Cards section.
