Sweet! I've been waiting for free dining to come out. Crossing my fingers that the rumors are true. We get 5% off the Disney gift cards at target, every bit helps. Just wanted to make sure before I started buying them

Does the target Red card count on gift cards?

Disney gift cards are classified as entertainment cards, and they are eligible for the Red Card discount.

Gift card question

I'm very sad that I won't be eligible for the FD as we're going Aug 24- Sept 1st! I will have to budget and pay OOP. I've heard people say they use gift cards instead of cash to keep things simple and so that it's prepaid. Can you tell me how to buy them and what the process is, as well as if they accept them everywhere...ie, TS, CS, carts, souvenirs etc... Thanks you so much!!! Elisa

From everything I have read it is very unlikely your dates will fall into FD this year. Jersey Week is normally blacked out for discounts. I myself am going Nov 3-8 and booked thru a TA who was offering an agency exclusive for my dates due to Jersey Week normally being blacked out.

You can buy the gift cards at the Disney store, CVS, Target, Costco. Etc. Then you just use them like a credit card. They accept the Disney gift cards at all Disney parks, restaurants and Downtown Disney.
