Where to buy discount Disney gift cards online and how to spot the best deals!
Paying for all (or part) of your Disney World vacation with discount Disney gift cards is an easy way to save money.
You can use Disney gift cards to pay for:
- A Disney vacation package
- Disney resort hotel stays
- Disney theme park tickets
- Food and drinks at Disney World and Disneyland
- Disney Cruises
- Merchandise and more…
It is easy to save hundreds of dollars by paying for all of this with cheap Disney gift cards!
There are many places that sell discount Disney gift cards and they each have pros and cons.
In this post, I’ll share the top three places to get a Disney gift card discount and my pick for the easiest to use.
Where To Buy Disney Gift Cards
You can buy Disney gift cards at a discount at many locations both online and in a store, such as:
- BJ’s Wholesale
- Sam’s Club
- Target (but you must pay with a Target Red Card for the discount)
Other places may also offer discounts, but anything less than 4-5% is NOT a good deal.
Here’s how to get cheap Disney gift cards at my top three best picks.
BJs Disney Gift Cards
BJ’s Wholesale is my first choice for Disney gift card deals because you don’t have to have a specific credit card or expensive membership to get discount Disney gift cards.
You now have to be a member to get a Disney gift card discount at BJ’s but fear not!
You can try out BJ’s with a free one-day pass and buy all of the gift cards you need for your trip.
You’ll get 24 hours to buy discounted Disney gift cards (and whatever else you want!) without purchasing a membership.
Right now the best deal is the $100 BJs Disney gift card that costs $95.99. This is a 4% savings and the other gift card options at BJ’s offer less than 4% off.
I like that you can pay for these discount Disney gift cards with any form of payment and that you can get instant access to these prices without a membership.
If you purchase these gift cards with a credit card that earns rewards or cash-back, you can save even more.
I buy them with my 2% cash back card so I save 6% total.
You can combine the amount from multiple gift cards on the Disney Gift Card site here, making them much easier to manage when you are in the parks.
BJs Disney Gift Card Discount Pros & Cons
- Pros: no membership required, can pay with any method
- Cons: only save 4%, have to buy them within 24 hours on the free pass
Target Disney Gift Cards
While Target doesn’t sell discount Disney gift cards per se, you can use a Target REDcard to save 5% on Disney gift cards.
A REDcard saves you 5% off of all your purchases, even Target Disney gift cards.
I especially like that there is a REDcard Debit card so I don’t have to open a credit card to save on Disney gift cards!
Just add Disney gift cards to your cart on Target.com (or in a Target store) and use your REDcard as your payment method at checkout.
Target Disney Gift Card Discount Pros & Cons
- Pros: can get them in-store or online, 5% savings
- Cons: must pay with a REDcard
If you happen to already be a Sam’s Club member, you can save about 4% on Disney gift cards when you buy these $50 Disney gift cards for $47.98.
These are only available to regular Sam’s Club members and membership will cost you $45.
Sometimes Groupon will offer discounts on Sam’s Club memberships (this is how I got my membership to – you guessed it – buy discount Disney gift cards!)
Recently I was able to save 10% on Disney gift cards at Sam’s thanks to a 5% cash back offer from DOSH. Click here to learn more about the cash back app DOSH.
Sam’s Club Disney Gift Card Discount Pros & Cons
- Pros: save 5%, options to save more with DOSH, can pay with any method
- Cons: must have a $45 membership

Does Costco Sell Disney Gift Cards?
Costco is a great place to buy discounted gift cards so you might be wondering about Costco Disney gift cards.
Unfortunately, Costco does NOT sell Disney gift cards in any of its US stores.
However, Costco does sometimes sell Landry’s Restaurants gift cards at a discount (e.g. a $100 gift card for $79.99).
These can be used for meals at several restaurants in Walt Disney World including T-Rex Cafe, Rainforest Cafe, and Yak & Yeti in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
What Can You Use Discount Disney Gift Cards For?
There are so many ways to use a Disney gift card discount to save money on your vacation!
First, if you book your trip with a travel agent, you can pay for your entire trip with Disney gift cards!
If you want help with every aspect of your vacation at no additional cost to you, I recommend getting a free quote from my travel agent partner Siera with Destinations in Florida.
If you rent DVC points to save thousands on a Disney Deluxe hotel stay, you can use discounted Disney gift cards to add a Disney Dining Plan to your reservation.
You can use gift cards to buy your park tickets directly from Disney, but you might be able to save more by buying discounted theme park tickets from Undercover Tourist.
And, of course, you can use your Disney gift cards in the parks for your food and merchandise purchases.

Can I Combine Disney Gift Cards?
Keeping track of a bunch of gift cards can be difficult, but thankfully there is a solution. Disney allows you to combine multiple cards into one card here!
I think this is one of the best features of Disney gift cards. You can move balances between cards and only have to keep track of one card on your trip.
The most you can move onto one Disney gift card is $1,000 so if you have more than that you’ll need multiple cards.
Note that if you have more than five to combine, you will have to transfer the balance to the primary card, then delete cards from your collection of “My Cards” as you go.
Cheap Disney Gift Cards Summary
In summary, BJ’s offers the most reliable and hassle-free way to get Disney gift card deals.
Though you can definitely get a Disney gift card discount at other locations, you will need a special card or pricey membership to get access to the best prices.
I like that you only need a trial membership to buy gift cards from BJ’s and that you can use any payment method (even one that earns additional cashback).

If I purchase gift cards online for email delivery can I link them as a form of payment attached to a Magic Band? If you link multiple gift cards will the balance combine or do you have to go through the gift card transfer process on the website then link?

Hi Dawn! You'd want one physical gift card linked in your Disney Gift card account. Then you would copy and paste the #s for each gift card you got via email delivery and add them to that card. You would take that card with you to Disney World and let them know at check-in you want to use it for room charges. They can't attach it to your Magic Band per se but it can be used to pay off your room charges.

This was so helpful, thanks! My Q is - if I have more than $1,000 in gift cards, how can I pay for my resort package? The disney website only allows you to use one gift card for payment (up to $1,000). Thanks!

@Kate Baehman, you can combine multiple gift cards up to $1000 on one gift card if you go to disneygiftcard.com. That would be faster than calling customer service with a bazillion gift codes lol.

Hi Kate! You may have to call to apply multiple gift cards to your package. Ir you could reserve with one then use the link in My Disney Experience to make payments with the other cards after booking.

I use the AMEX Blue Cash and buy gift cards at grocery stores. It's best to buy other items in tandem so AMEX doesn't track that you're buying gift cards, but with that card you get 6% back at grocery stores.
Unfortunately, does not give 6% back at wholesale clubs like BJs.

There can be unforeseen issues with using Disney gift cards to purchase theme park tickets. Recently we purchased 4-day tickets to Disneyland with gift cards using the 5% discount through Target. But, we wanted to upgrade the tickets to 5-day instead. Unfortunately, Disneyland makes you buy new tickets and then they refund the original tickets to the original form of payment. So, to upgrade, we had to buy more gift cards and then wait 6-8 weeks for the other gift cards to be refunded. So, we were not able to get the refund done before our trip, so now we have over $1,000 in Disney gift cards that will have to wait to use probably on next year’s trip. Plus, when we bought the tickets, I had to make separate transactions because there is $1,000 limit on individual gift cards. We’ll, after the first ticket purchase, I transferred funds yo the same gift card and made a second purchase of tickets. Now we’ve run into a problem of Disney trying to refund more than $1,000 to the same gift card. Such a hassle that it caused trying to save $68. Just thought I’d share since I wish I had none this before since I would have simply used my Disney rewards credit card instead to make things simpler to change if need be.
