How did you pay for your PAP? CC, gift card?

I was just wondering if I could pay for our discounted PAP using gift cards purchased at Target (so I could get an additional 5% off)? I've only ever paid for things with DVC Member Services through credit card, but if I can use gift cards I would like to do that! And you can pay for DVC dues and the meal plans using these gift cards as well I heard? Thanks for the info!

Disney VISA so I got the few extra points to spend later on.

If you call MS to purchase the PAP you can use ONLY one Gift Card and the balance must be put on a Credit Card. Not sure if the same restriction applies if you purchase a PAP on property.

Payment for the Dining Plans and Dues do not have the same restrictions as with ticketing. MS is able to take as may Gift Card numbers as you are willing to read off to them.

I bought 4 of the new PAP's and was told that I could only use 2 disney gift cards per purchase. I broke the purchase up into 4 separate transactions to use more gift cards, but the rule is 2 per purchase.

Any limits on a Visa Rewards Card? We'll have 2, but we could use 1 for each of the PAP. We get to buy them next week!

I purchased our PAPs through Guest Services using $300 Disney gift cards that we purchased from HEB (TX grocery store) for $250! We were only able to use 2 gift cards for each transaction, so I had to buy each PAP in a separate transaction. It worked out perfectly and we paid less than $350 per PAP!

The ticketing limit is with the number of method of payments regardless of type.

The Automated Ticketing System, which is the one at the Parks (including TTC, DTD, water parks) can accept an unlimited number of Disney Gift Cards in one transaction.

Normally at a booth we can accept only three forms of payment, but unlimited Disney gift Cards are treated as a single form of payment. Each credit or debit card, or hotel card, is considered a single form of payment, as well as cash.

I agree that at the window you can use as many gift cards as you want (I've done that). But when buying online through the DVC website, that site does NOT accept gift cards, but does accept the rewards card, however, only 2 forms of purchase allowed, so if your rewards card does not cover it, you must use a cc to pay the balance (done that too). Talked to MS last week about gift card purchase and was told that you can use a gift card over the phone, but can only use 2 forms of payment, so unless you can purchase the entire ticket with 2 gift cards, then you will only be able to use 1 gift card and 1 cc. I have a ton of gift cards, so will use them for other purchases when we get there. I know when I used gift cards for the cruise, I was allowed to apply 3 of them at a time, then log out and log in and apply 3 more towards my balance.

This is exactly what we did. Split the PAP purchases into individual transactions and use 2 disney gift cards per transaction. 10% savings (Target card 5% and Target coupon for another 5%) it adds up.

At Epcot last week (so in person) I used a $200 gc for referring a friend to DVC, 4 $50 g 'a I bought for bonus gas points, $280 in Visa rewards and the rest went on Disney visa. Quite a process but went quick

Were you able to use 2 disney gift cards and put the balance on a credit card or were your 2 disney gift cards in large enough denominations that they covered the entire cost of the PAP?
