exactly! That is what makes me so crazy about them and is the primary reason that I'm truly thinking of switching to the credit card instead of the debit...even the manager at my local Target recommended it as she herself has had issues with the debit card and limits.

Do you need to use the gift cards by July or the 5% off certificates?

This is a reprint from the theme parks page, but I should have posted here....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So I thought I'd share my little ticket-drama...lol

I have been buying target gc for over 1 year. I paid my entire resort ressie with $50 gc, no problem. I already knew that there would be issues with tickets; I called a few times in April - May always got the same answer "You can only use 2 forms of payment, but when you get to guest services they will happily take them all." Not really the answer I wanted...but the answer I heard most often here so not unexpected.

Yet there were still a few people who said they had done it, so I emailed WDW to clarify their policy and received an email that they will be happy to take giftcards on the phone and gave me a number...

Now mind you, I wasn't expecting miracles, but with email in hand, I figured I would try some polite nudging. A nice woman on the end said the normal spiel and further complicated my life, by saying "Sweetie, they can't do that at the parks, either" Now generally speaking, it is safer to go with info from the boards than the CM's, but this still freaked me out, so I politely asked to speak to a manger and after about 10 minutes of the CM explaining to me, that they would not be able to do anything, she put me through.

After 30 minutes of holding and 2 dropped calls, where I had to call back, the woman on the other end put through the ticket order with 27 - $50 gift cards.

Mission Accomplished

So resort $2800, tickets $1400, photo pass+ $150, so far over $400 in savings We plan on paying of meals via resort with gift cards, as well!

Mission Accomplished

Not true, although you may get CMs on the phone that don't know better. I used up to 20 in various over the phone transactions.

When purchasing tickets, there's a limit of 2 payment types per transaction on the phone (like 1 gift card, the rest on a credit card or you could do 2 gift cards). For making payments on your reservation they can take as many as you have.

OTOH... if I reach my limit on the debit card and they will approve another form of payment and still give me the 5% discount, I could use my Disney VISA card and accumulate rewards points there!

what about 10% off coupons?

I was wondering if anyone has tried to use the 10% off entire purchase coupons? I am thinking that it would work because the 5% pharmacy coupons work but I don't want to get to the register with a bunch of gift cards and then the coupon not come off.

The email I received from disney stated it is not policy to limit and when I called and got past the original cm, the manager was able to do it for me

I think I may pay for my trip using the Target 5% off debit card that would save me $250!

Not sure why some CMs can't understand that two types of payment doesn't mean two gift cards. It could be 100 gift cards and a credit card - still just two types of payment.

True, but again, at that point you will be at the mercy of the store manager who may or may not give you the extra 5% if you use another form of payment.

For tickets? That'll be great if they've finally changed that.

Yes. Disney GC are considered merchandise in their system and will work.

Is this a special 10% coupon? Where did you get it?

FYI, I was able to buy Special Event tickets by phone using several GC's no problem. The CM didn't even bat an eye.

Well, I say no problem, but the gift card system seems to be half way broken half the time -- it'll show value on the card, but will decline the charge. A bit of massaging and hold time (sometimes with a supervisor) and it always works eventually, which makes me think it's probably the skill level of the CM at play.

In any case, for special event ticketing, definitely okay to use multiple cards via phone. Can't imagine that regular tickets would be any different as long as you get a CM who knows how to do it.

As an aside, using various discounts on our Target GC's, all told, we saved $646 by paying for things using our Target Debit Card!

I see them on ebay all the time, I was wondering if it would be worth it to buy one from there and then just buy all my cards at once.
