Disney Launches New Shop Disney Parks App

It's happened to all of us at one time. We see the perfect Disney souvenir and think "Oh I'll come back later and get it" and then you forget. And by the time you remember you've already returned home and now your left wishing you had picked up that great gift.

What will you buy with the new Shop Disney Parks app?What will you buy with the new Shop Disney Parks app?

Well wish no more! Disney has recently launched the Shop Disney Parks app for iPhone and Android phones.

So what makes this app different than say the Disney Parks Online Store? Well, you can order pretty much anything on this app, including food as our friends at the Disney Food Blog discovered recently! And by "food" we're talking iced character cookies, Mickey Rice Krispie treats, Disney-branded candy, and even the Astronaut Ice Cream that you'll find in the gift shop attached to Mission:SPACE.

Users will also find thousands of gifts, accessories, collectibles, and more on this app and many of the items have never been sold outside the Disney theme parks. And when you're in the Walt Disney World theme parks you can use the app to find out what merchandise might be located in a store near you.

If you're shopping any of the Walt Disney World theme parks and find something you love you can also use the app to scan the barcode and save the item to your favorites so you can purchase it later. You can also choose to ship the items directly to your house, which means no more stuffing souvenirs in your carry-on bags!

Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can use their merchandise discounts on purchases made through the app.

The Shop Disney Parks app is only available for Walt Disney World Resort merchandise.

Can the Disney gift card be used ? And the Disney Store gift card?

Clara - The only information that we have on it right now is what is posted above.

Brenda - After searching through the app I tried to make an order, it looks like the only payment option is the one that is connected to your MyDisneyExperience account. For me that was the last credit card that I used to check in to a Disney Resort with. It did give me the option to change the credit card, but I didn't see a gift card choice.
