Visa gift cards, Disney gift cards....

I need your expertise! I have a sum of $ to take to WDW and no credit card. I would much rather take it on a Visa gift card (that way, I don't HAVE to use any extra at WDW) but I can't find out about hidden fees, cost to use, etc. Does anyone have any experience with Visa gift cards?

I think the fee varies depending on the amount of the card. On average I believe they are $3.95-5.95 per card? This is for Amex and Visa gift cards.

I did a VISA gift card a couple of weeks ago and the fee for the $50 card was $3.88.

Last I checked (which was around Christmas) if you have an account at TD Bank there is no fee for Visa gift cards.
