another gift card question....
 
I purchased gift cards today to apply to my reservation. can someone tell me, when I pay online at d.u. is there anything else I need to be putting in besides the account number from the back of the card?
I see a security code on the back of the card where you rub it off but no place to put the code in their form (that I can see). I don't want to key in 100 of these things (exaggerated) and then find I did them all wrong.

That is not really the security code under the silver tape... It is the last 4 digits of the gift card. Remove the tape and type in the whole number on the back of the card.

I've been seeing the threads about using Disney gift cards to pay towards your cruise as well as using a Target card to buy discounted Disney gift cards.

Anyway, my question is: If you use Disney gift cards to make payments towards your cruise and then something happens where you have to cancel your cruise (before the PIF date), how do they refund your money? Thanks!

Any refunds are put back on the card so be sure to keep the cards!

thanks so much. I keyed 20 of them in and hope I did it right. I picked 'balance payment' because my cards are $50 each and it said interm payments had to be no less than $100. there was also a 'payment in full' box so I felt safe with the balance payment one.

its a bit of work but I saved $50 on the thousand and I could save $250 if I do the whole cruise on cards. worth it to me. :thumbsup2

Thanks for the quick answer :)


Wow, so if someone purchases a large quantity in gift cards, and for some reason needs to cancel it, there's no way to get cash back. :scratchin

I think I'll stick with just making monthly payments towards my cruise via my Visa Debit card as I have done in the past. :)

I've paid two cruises in a row, entirely with gift cards. I even took a gift card on board last time to pay for the re-booking of the next cruise. Tips, excursions, onboard expenses... My travel agent calls me the 'gift card lady'

Haven't paid full price for gas in several years now. :)

DREAMS UNLIMITED- a travel agency

I've paid for 3 cruises, entirely with gift cards. I thought DU would only take up to 5 or 10 cards per day, but their policy may have changed. I had to cancel one of the cruises and they credited each card, which I had saved. They were able to give me a list, with the last 4 digits on each card, so I could match them up if I needed to. The DU agent was none too happy about it :confused3. Switched TA after that experience. :p

They limit 10 per day. I have had a great experience with them.
