New Disney Gift Card App Now Available

posted on November 16th, 2010 by Jill Thomas, Business Development Director, Disney Gift Card Services


Hi everyone. The Disney Gift Card team is always working on innovative solutions to make your Disney Gift Card experience even better. And today, we’re excited to share our newest app now available in the Apple App Store.

Disney Gift Card App

With the Disney Gift Card app, you can view your current balance and learn more about Disney Gift Cards. We’ve made it super simple to keep track of the entire family by creating custom labels for each gift card in your party.

Quick tip – In addition to labeling each card, you can also snap a photo and use that picture to quickly identify the current balance of a family member’s Disney Gift Card.

We hope you enjoy version 1.0. Visit Apple.com for app specifics and to download this free tool.

What a great idea! Will this work with the Disney Honeymoon Registry Gift Card, as well?

Awesome, I just wish it had some Android love.

Can we get an app for Android? There is a huge number of people with android phones that would love this app, including myself.

JOHNNY on November 16th, 2010 at 5:01 pm

What about the android app??

5

Brent from GA on November 16th, 2010 at 5:04 pm

I like it, but what about the Droid users out there? Anything for them?

6

Stephanie from NJ on November 16th, 2010 at 5:08 pm

Love the idea (particularly if it works for the Honeymoon gift card) – but any idea when it might be available for Android? :)

Dan from CA on November 16th, 2010 at 5:09 pm

I just downloaded it.. and I LOVE IT!! Thanks!! :-)

Jon on November 16th, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Looks great but…

One word: ANDROID! Think about it!

James from NY on November 16th, 2010 at 5:18 pm

This looks very useful, but don’t have an iPhone. I’m surprised Disney don’t have some (if not any) apps for android phones.

10

Alan on November 16th, 2010 at 5:19 pm

Sounds like a great idea. I’ll go download it right now.

11

Nicola from Cheshire on November 16th, 2010 at 5:19 pm

Is this available in the uk?? Please say I can download it in the uk soon!!!
Ps Craig, I’m pretty sure it would, we used the honeymoon card last ur and it was exactly like any other gift card!

12

John on November 16th, 2010 at 5:22 pm

Will there be an Android app also?

13

Thomas from FL on November 16th, 2010 at 5:24 pm

Now you need to make an Android app …

14

Mark from CA on November 16th, 2010 at 5:33 pm

Don’t forget us Droid people, we are always last, we don’t even have Disney Magic yet and this would be great to keep track of our balances.

15

Michael on November 16th, 2010 at 5:39 pm

Looks like a great app, but I too would like to know when the Disney Park app will be available for the Android market with Verizon. It has been out for over a year, but still haven’t been able to get it for the Andoid? Wish it would be here in the next 3 weeks before I visit Disney World!

16

Terrence from MD on November 16th, 2010 at 5:43 pm

Yes you have a huge Android Following and it covers all the Carriers that are with Disney as well . SO please offset all these Apple Apps with some Android ones.

17

Leslie from FL on November 16th, 2010 at 5:45 pm

Fabulous! Can’t wait to download it!

18

Ken from IL on November 16th, 2010 at 5:58 pm

Ugh. Android please. :) iPhone is so 2009.

19

Jeffrey from IL on November 16th, 2010 at 6:01 pm

I agree with everyone else that making this into an Android App would be great. I am also patiently waiting for “Mobile Magic” to become more than a Verizon Non-Smartphone App. But again, this is a great idea and would definitely use this in parks if available.

20

Bryan on November 16th, 2010 at 6:03 pm

Would love to get any Disney apps…how about making them for the android market too so even more could enjoy.

21

Diana from NY on November 16th, 2010 at 6:05 pm

As of May 2010, the number of users in the country with Android phones is higher than the number of iPhone users. Count me in as an Android user (yet I own a Mac, go figure) who would love this app!

22

Melissa on November 16th, 2010 at 6:08 pm

I know tons of people have already said it, but please acknowledge the Android market!!

23

SANDRA from MA on November 16th, 2010 at 6:09 pm

I got so excited when I saw this, then I read it wasn’t for Android. You have a picture of Star Tours on the top of the page! I use both Apple and Droid technology but my phone is Droid, please make this app for Droid before I leave for WDW in 3 weeks!

24

Christopher from VT on November 16th, 2010 at 6:25 pm

Hope you make an adroid app too. Most of the people I know have a droid and would love an app like this.

25

Gerard from GA on November 16th, 2010 at 6:36 pm

+1 vote for Android!

26

Andrea from CA on November 16th, 2010 at 7:00 pm

This will really come in handy! Thank you!

27

Danielle from NJ on November 16th, 2010 at 7:02 pm

LOVE all things DISNEY!, but SAD I can’t access many of em’ from my DROID :( C’mon show a lil’ love to the droid-using, life-time DISNEY Vacationers toooooo :) <3

28

Meghann from CA on November 16th, 2010 at 7:10 pm

I just tried to add my Honeymoon Gift Card and the app crashes every single time.

29

Melissa on November 16th, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Chiming in to request Android apps.

30

Phillip on November 16th, 2010 at 8:01 pm

Consider this comment another plea for an Android version. Great idea Though!

31

Andrew on November 16th, 2010 at 8:25 pm

I would like to see some of the Disney apps come out for webos.

32

Jose from CA on November 16th, 2010 at 8:31 pm

Awesome, now lets get one for ANDROID so that the other 70% of the consumer base can use it!

33

Kristi from AB on November 16th, 2010 at 10:55 pm

Is this US only? I cannot find the app…

34

Bea on November 16th, 2010 at 11:42 pm

Just downloaded it; I can see my recent transaction and current balance. Awesome!

35

Michael on November 17th, 2010 at 7:28 am

If it helps, I’d be willing to pay double the normal $10 just get the Disney Magic for Droid by the end of November.

36

amber from AZ on November 17th, 2010 at 8:44 am

I agree with everyone else. Disney needs to make some of their apps available for Android users. We visit the Disney parks too.

37

Kerry from CA on November 17th, 2010 at 2:34 pm

Disney needs to get these apps out on the Windows Phone!

38

Richard on November 17th, 2010 at 2:46 pm

I’d also like to request the same for Windows Phone.

39

Verne on November 17th, 2010 at 3:13 pm

can we get this app for the new Windows Phone 7 OS?

40

Becky on November 17th, 2010 at 3:25 pm

Definately need this app for Windows Phone!

41

TROY from IN on November 17th, 2010 at 8:06 pm

I agree – ANDROID-ANDROID-ANROID versions!! I’m going crazy waiting for an android Mobile Magic app too! Please, please!!

42

Ben from KS on November 17th, 2010 at 8:12 pm

Can I use the app to redeem my gift cards, meaning can I show the app on my phone to buy something in a Disney Park without ever opening my wallet?

43

Anonymous on November 17th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

I also waould love to see an Android app or two!

44

Tiffany from FL on November 18th, 2010 at 2:04 pm

45

Bob on November 18th, 2010 at 5:07 pm

46

Jennifer on November 18th, 2010 at 5:33 pm

Need some Windows love here…I got the Disney love just not on my new Win7 phone. Which I adore.

47

Sara from MN on November 20th, 2010 at 10:11 am

Yes, please, android version too. I have an iPad and an iPod Touch, neither of which I take to the parks.

48

Michelle on November 21st, 2010 at 11:18 pm

Another vote for an Android app and a vote to work with Disney Dream Reward Dollars. Thanks!

49

Rachal on November 22nd, 2010 at 9:09 am
