Gift Cards in DCL Magic Gift Shop

The Grand Parents were thinking about getting the kids Disney Gift cards to spend at the gift shop on board. With the gift shop on the Magic accept them?
Thank you for your help!

I do not believe they will. All items purchased in the gift shops are charge to your room account.

Is this new? I remember using a credit card for my purchases, but that was years ago.

You can always apply the gift cards to your onboard account and let the children swipe their KTTW card for the amount they were given.

When we were on the Dream in November, my DS's used their Disney gift cards in all the stores as did I and also my rewards card from Disney Chase Visa.

Just on the Magic a few days ago, my DD used a Disney gift card in the shops, no problem at all.

This is a new development then....at one time you could never use gift cards at point of sale. When the new ships can out there were reports that people were able to use gift cards in the shops but the classic ships you could not.

So, it sounds like now the classic ships are letting people use gift cards in the shops at point of sale. This is new. Maybe they updated the registers.

I have been cruising DCL since 1998 and never have been able to use a credit card at point of sale. Everything had to be put on the KTTW card.

This isn't accurate. I paid in cash for some of my small transactions, as well as using an alternative CC. And people in line ahead of me were using Disney gift cards for their purchases (younger kids). You can pay however you want. I just got off the Magic approx 2 weeks ago, and it wan't a problem


That would be an awesome gift for grandkids!!!

Again, this is a new development. It has not always been this way.

New or not, people are able to pay just about any way they choose. At least, on the Magic, as of 2 weeks ago.

Change, it's a beautiful thing

Great news! All 3 of my children have received gift cards from their grandparents. They will be excited to be able to use their very own "credit cards" to by themselves something special!

You know, I didn't know anything about these types of boards (much less DISboards)before my first cruise. I'm glad I didn't. I'd have been a real basket case worrying about all the "most important" things I wouldn't be able to do. And whether I got the best room, what's the best rotation, how soon can I board stuff would have sent me over the wall.

Sometimes too much information doesn't help.

This is great news! When we were on the Magic in May we could only use or room key in the stores. Thanks for the posting!
