View Full Version : Disney Gift Cards

Posted this on the Budget Board, but it got quickly buried. Thought some folks here might know.
I know the Disney gift cards can be used at WDW estaurants, hotels etc., but I'm not sure about some of the other places. Does anyone know if they can be used at the clubs in Pleasure Island (to pay the bar bills), or at the vending carts? Maybe the question really is does anyone know where they can't be used?
I did check the Disney site for info on the gift card, and what it says is "The Disney Gift Card can be used to purchase admission tickets to Pleasure Island and DisneyQuest®." Our admission to those places is already covered through our park tickets. I was hoping to find out if you can use them once you are in there to pay for any drinks/food you might order.

There are very few specific places at WDW that can't accept Disney Gift Cards.
As the list that Bumbershoot posted says, the DGC can not be used at any place that is not owned and operated by Disney, including parks, resorts, and Downtown Disney.
Aside from that, the only place you can't use the card is with roving vendors and mobile carts who don't have electronic card readers (stationary carts that have readers will accept the DGC).
It CAN be used inside the clubs at DTD.
It CAN be used in all of the in-park gift shops, stores, restaurants, eateries, and counters.
It CAN be used at resort gift shops, stores, restaurants, eateries, and counters.
It CAN be used to pay your resort bill at the front desk.
It CAN be used as a deposit to enable room charging on your Key to the World (KTTW) card.
