Beginning November 16, digital Disney Gift Cards will be accepted at the Walt Disney World Resort and other domestic locations as another payment option for Guests. This new version of Disney Gift Cards will work just like plastic gift cards. Digital Disney Gift Cards may be loaded into and stored in various digital wallet applications (i.e. Gyft, GoWallet, Passbook). Guests may load cards into the mobile application of their choice to use as a form of payment.
In the near future, Guests will be able to download another digital wallet application, YuDo by Disney, to use in conjunction with digital Disney Gift Cards. YuDo by Disney, a new digital wallet app, provides parents with visibility into where and how their children are shopping. YuDo can be used to make online and onsite purchases with digital gift cards from more than 175 third party merchants in more than 100,000 stores, restaurants, movie theaters and online shopping destinations.
