If you don't want to do it all over the phone, you can pay online with giftcards as well though the Disney site. (it worked last year, and I had 20+ of them).

Sam's Club had $100 Disney gift cards for $99 (I think), with a $10 bonus gift card (to be at the Disney Store online) per $100 Disney Gift card. We were blinged out in Disney attire last year.

The only risk to this, if you cancel your trip, you don't get refunded in cash, but Disney gift cards. So that's a lot of potential money to have tied up in Disney gift cards.

I just received an email from Disney Destinations with a discount code worth $2.00 good towards a Disney gift card. Anyone else get this? Do you think it's a one time use code? Thanks!

Not true- I use gift cards all the time to pay with a CM- multiple gift cards- last time I called I used 5 $50 ones.

Can you use DGCs to pay off cruises? If I normally use MouseFanTravel, can I use DGCs to pay balances?

I just wanted everyone to know; while I have had no trouble paying with multiple giftcards for my resort reservation. They are not letting me use it for tickets on the phone. I tried several different cms and no one would take more that 2 giftcards for park tickets/ annual passes. I was just told you could do it at the gate. Oh, well....

I used 36 gift cards I bought at Target (10% off - 5% Red Card; 5% pharmacy reward) to pay for our Disney trip over the phone. When I first got the agent, I asked very nicely if I could use a lot of gift cards to pay for our trip. She laughed and said absolutely - her record was 50+ gift cards with someone.

I'd recommend being ready to go when you get an agent - have all the gift cards sitting there, ready to go - if they're the kind where you scratch the stuff off the back, have that done before you call!

Also used my Disney Visa Rewards points we had saved on the same call. Not a problem.

At WDW, I used a few more cards to pay my balance on the room (things we had charged to the room) - again, bought from Target.

If you use all of these gift cards what happens if you need to cancel your trip?

If you cancel your trip, the money goes back on the gift cards, so don't throw them away!!

So, let me understand this In my case, I have a package (rm and tx), but I'm going to add dining after my 45 day mark, as well as possibly another person, can I use the gc's to pay for the stuff I do after 45 days as well? I'm getting all giddy thinking of how much I can save
