Wild New Disney Gift Card Designs to Celebrate 20 Years

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is celebrating 20 years since its opening in 1998 and for the first time ever, we are offering Disney Gift Cards made of wood to mark the occasion! Choose between a landscape design featuring the wonders of the park or a playful elephant just like the ones you see on Kilimanjaro Safari. These special Disney Gift Card designs are only available in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, so be sure to visit a merchandise location starting this weekend during the “Party for the Planet” celebration and throughout the year! Keep your eyes peeled, an additional animal-inspired design could emerge in the coming months…

In order to preserve the design and integrity of the cards, there is no magnetic strip on the back of the card, only a barcode, so after selecting the design you want, ask a Disney’s Animal Kingdom cast member to scan the card to activate for a minimum of $15. After your card is activated, it functions exactly like our traditional plastic Disney Gift Card, redeemable for practically all things Disney throughout Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, aboard Disney Cruise Line, in Disney store locations in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico as well as at and on the Shop Disney Parks app. Disney Gift Cards are reloadable in person, have no fees and never expire. Just stop by a merchandise or food and beverage location and ask a cast member for assistance. You can learn more about Disney Gift Card redemption and shop hundreds of additional designs at Let the adventures continue!


  • I love how Disney shows you these things but you can’t get them unless you’re in the park at a specific time period. I’ll be there in 30 days but I wanted to buy the card to use on my trip beforehand. It’s the ultimate tease!
