I just got my $50 card and applied it to my fall trip! Don't know if my $10 will get here in time to add to my trip, or if I'll just have to keep it for spending money
Can we buy multiple cards? or maybe my husband buy 1 and I buy 1? I looked at the terms and it did not say 1 per household etc???

Is there a cost to buy the American express reloadable card?

I ordered one and there was no cost for the card itself (aside from the $200 loaded on to it), but you have to do it via electronic bank transfer, and it takes a few days to get that sorted out (you give them your account info, then they do some tiny test deposits to make sure everything's above board), and *then* they withdraw the $200 and print your card.
According to the web site, there's also no cost to add more money if you do it via electronic transfer. The costs come in if you use it at an ATM or add money via MoneyPack or similar.

I'm sorry, I've looked online at my WDW reservation and I just can't find where I, if I can, pay on my reservation using the Disney Gift Cards. I'm sure it's probably obvious and I've overlooked it.

Would someone be able to let me know where to look for this at on the site, please?

I would call and pay but I have a lot, a lot, of gift cards.

Thanks so much!!

Did you book through the WDW website?

If so, then find your resort reservation, click on View Details. The look for the link that says something like "Pay balance" I would do a screenshot but our trip is paid off so I don't get the link any more. I am pretty sure if you booked by TA, you have to call the TA to pay with GC.

Does anyone know if the Employee Target Discount works on these in addition to the Target Debit Card?

I started to book through the WDW website but then I had a question about using a AAA discount so I called. I went ahead and booked while I was on the phone. That must be the reason why I don't see a "Pay Balance" link.

I'll have to call then. I might call a few times. I can see how entering 35+ $50 GC in one call would be tiring for a CM.

Thanks for your help. At least I know it wasn't me missing the obvious now.

I booked my trip in May on the phone and was still able to use the link. It showed up in several places on the site. At the top of the page there was a banner that told me what my remaining balance was, when it was due and then said 'pay balance now'. Then under my reservations it had the same information, in addition to details about my stay (dates, resort, etc), and then the 'pay balance now' option.

I also booked over the phone because I had a pin and the pay balance link is there for me. After you click on pay balance you can change the payment method to gift card and enter the amount of payment

You can now enter your gift cards through the automated line instead of talking to a cm. Just a short time ago it wasn't this way (at least that worked for me) so I'm happy about this. I felt bad giving the cm too many giftcards at once so I was only doing 4-5 at a time. One day I called to do more, and there was an automated option that worked for entering multiple gift cards!

The website would only let me enter one giftcard at a time and not a partial payment when I tried that.
