Hi,

Can anyone please tell me the best phone card to use to phone the UK when in Disney, and if possible where to buy it from.

Thank you

Lyndon :)

I always buy from Walmart or Walgreens. I am not sure of the name they are international and I do remember the one from Walmart is blue! It was last me as least 2 weeks and that's calling home everyday to check on the dog!

I would also recommend buying a phone card from Walmart. We bought a 10 dollar AT and T Worldwide PrePaid Phone Card. It gave us about 150 minutes of ringing the UK. There is no expiry date on it so we brought a card home last year and used the same card this summer. They are normally sold just in front of the tills. Whatever you do, don't buy a Disney phone card. We bought one a couple of years ago and 10 dollars lasted about 8 minutes. Scandalous!!!!!

I saw a phone card machine by the payphones in the Pop Century foyer last year, so I'm assuming all Disney resorts sell them.

The Disney resorts do sell them, but you don't get very many minutes for your money.

Oh. I'll go for the Walmart one instead then. Is it easy to use in payphones?

We have only used them from our Disney hotel room. You just dial 9 for an outside line. Then type in the phone number that they ask you to ring. You are asked for a code which is on your card and then you just dial your UK number. Very easy. I presume it is the same with payphones, without dialling the 9 first.

Ah, ok. This sounds very similar to what I had to do with payphones last year. It would be much easier to call from my room though- Disney don't charge you anything extra for doing this do they?

No. Disney don't charge you anything for this service:woohoo:. If you forget to dial the 9 first, it won't let you make the call so it's impossible to make a mistake.
