Question TS Restaurants that don't accept Disney Gift Cards?

We will not be purchasing any DDP on our trip this July and paying for all meals OOP. We have been advised to purchase Disney Gift Cards to pay so we don't need lots of cash. But we are having trouble finding a list of TS restaurants that do, for sure, accept gift cards. We know that non Disney owned restaurants don't accept Disney gift cards. But is there a list somewhere of restaurants that are not Disney owned? If a restaurant participates in DDP would that mean they are Disney owned and accept Disney gift cards? We know that Rain Tree Forest does not and Shula's Steakhouse does not but are specifically interested in Artist Point, Le Cellier, Narcoosee's, Coral Reef, BoG, Tony's, Plaza, Yak and Yeti, Wolfgang Puck's, Chef Paul's, Tutto Italia, Biergarten, Garden Grill, Tusker House, and some others. Thanks in advance for any advice.

We always use our Disney rewards card from Chase, which I'm guessing would be in the same catergory as a Disney gift card. We've used it in several restaurants that you've listed. If you are at a park or one of the Disney hotels you for sure won't have a problem. We stick to those b/c we know there won't be any issue. We also use the card to buy snacks at the kiosks..... Good luck!

I've yet to come across somewhere that does not. Just for reference, we have used them at the following from your list:

Le Cellier, Be Our Guest, Plaza, and Tusker House. Also, the Joffrey's coffee kiosks DO take the gift cards.

Of your list, the only ones that are not Disney owned are Yak and Yeti and Wolfgang Puck's -- and I am not sure about Chef Paul's or Tutto Italia. If Rainforest does not accept gcs, Y&Y probably does not either as I believe they are both owned by the same parent company but I am truly not sure about that.

We use GCs for absolutely everything and have never had a problem. However, we are careful to stay with the Disney owned and operated locations for allergy reasons, so I am not sure that's really helpful to what you're looking for.
