It is important to note that Disney Gift Cards themselves are not going away. They will still be able to be purchased online, at Disney Store retail locations, and at Disney theme parks like Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

The website is simply being upgraded on January 20, 2021. The following notice has been posted on the official DisneyGiftCard.com website:

DisneyGiftCard.com will be upgraded on January 20, 2021. All existing DisneyGiftCard.com account details (logins and gift cards added) will no longer be available after January 19, 2021. As a reminder, your account is not a mobile wallet and should not be considered as such. Always be sure to keep your physical and digital Disney Gift Card(s) with you as it will be required to make any purchases.

Once live on January 20, 2021, 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.

Prior to the website enhancement on January 20, 2021, please be sure that you take the following steps:

  • 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.

Please review the Frequently Asked Questions offered below as it relates to the website update. Or should you have any questions regarding Disney Gift Cards, please feel free to Contact Us.


It is worth noting that your login information and any cards you have saved to your DisneyGiftCard.com account will not transfer to the new, enhanced website. According to Disney:

With the update to the DisneyGiftCard.com website, all current account information will be deleted and no longer be available as of January 20, 2021.

If, therefore, there are cards you no longer physically have possession of, make sure you transfer the balances before January 19.

Disney stated that card balances will not change with the Disney Gift Card online upgrade — they will remain the same as they were previously, so you will not lose any money.

Disney Gift Cards are redeemable at:

  • Walt Disney World Resort
  • Disneyland Resort 
  • The Disney Store
  • shopDisney.com
  • Disney Cruise Line
  • Adventures by Disney
