Qualifying Locations to Use Your Disney Dining Promo Card
The Dining Promo Card can be used to purchase food and beverage items at select participating locations at Walt Disney World. Use your card at most quick-service venues, food carts, and table-service restaurants. Before you dine or purchase food and beverage items, be sure to check that the location accepts the digital Disney Dining Promo Card.
The following locations are unable to accept the Disney Dining Promo Card:

How to Use Your Disney Dining Promo Card
Once you arrive at your resort and are checked in, the digital Disney Dining Promo Card will be sent via email to guest email associated with the reservation. Be sure to check your spam or junk folders for a message from Disney Gift Card Services. This email will include the total amount on the card as well as the barcode for use.
If you have any issues receiving the promo card, speak to the front desk for assistance.
To utilize your card balance, simply present the barcode from the email during your food and beverage transaction. It is used similarly to a Disney Gift Card.
Gratuities are not included and it seems that those would need to be paid separately.
This Disney Dining Promo Card gives guests more flexibility than the previous Disney Dining Plan as they are not restricted to credits or limits per meal period.
You can view your remaining balance at the bottom of your receipt on the most recent purchase, by visiting DisneyGiftCard.com, or by calling (877) 650-4327.
The promo card can be added to your digital wallet but cannot be added to a Magic Band, Magic Band+, or Magic Mobile. If using mobile order in the My Disney Experience app, you can type in the number for the card to pay for the order.
- If I already have a reservation during these dates, can it be modified to include this Dining Promo Card offer?
- Current reservations can be modified, however, due to recent price changes it may increase the cost of your Disney vacation package. Be sure to keep that in mind!
- When will the Dining Promo Card expire?
- Any remaining balance on the card will expire on September 30, 2023.
For all of the most up to date information, you can visit the Disney Dining Promo site.
