Physical Gift Cards Temporarily Unavailable for Purchase via shopDisney

With brick-and-mortar Disney Stores closing on March 17 due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Disney fans looking to shop for merchandise and gifts can still turn to for all their online shopping needs. However, those looking to purchase gift cards are out of luck, as shopDisney has temporarily suspended the ability for customers to purchase physical gift cards via the website.

Customers are instead encouraged to purchase Disney Gift Card eGifts, which can be loaded onto your smartphone and scanned at various locations, or otherwise used via online checkout on shopDisney. While the reason for this is unknown, this is likely attributed to the current move towards reducing unnecessary contact and encouraging social distancing.

There is no confirmation on when physical gift cards will be available again to purchase via shopDisney.
