Disney Gift Card Website Announces Upcoming Deletion Of Stored Gift Cards
It appears the DisneyGiftCard.com website will be moving under the same technology umbrella along with other Disney sites such as Walt Disney World and Disney+. On January 20, 2021 the site will be upgraded so that everyone will utilize the same username/password on DisneyGiftCard.com that they do on other Disney platforms. Because of this change all account details including logins and the gift card information stored under each person’s account will be deleted. Please note that this will NOT affect the balances on these cards, only that they will no longer be stored on the website.
Many people used the DisneyGiftCard.com website to combine the balances of their multiple Disney Gift Cards onto one card (up to $1,000). This made it easier to make payments and keep track of payment methods.
As many of us Disney fans know, if a Disney trip reservation or Disney Store purchase is made with a Disney Gift Card and then the trip is cancelled or the store purchase is returned then the original amount is refunded back onto the original form of payment, i.e. the Disney Gift Card. This means that it’s very important to keep hold of those physical Gift Cards until after your trip or the purchase is officially part of your collection.
This DisneyGiftCard.com website announcement will be disappointing to those who have stored their Gift Card information in the website and have since lost the physical Gift Card as all of their payment info is about to be wiped clean. I would highly recommend that if this is you, to transfer the remaining funds from the DisneyGiftCard.com website to a physical card that you still have in your possession.
Below is the notification that Disney has issued:
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.
