Do Disney Gift Cards Expire????

I wasn't sure where to post this, so if it needs to be moved elsewhere I understand! I won a Disney gift card and we are not going to WDW again until 2012. Of course I can use the card at the Disney Store and other places for stuff, but if I don't find a NEED to use it that way I want to hold onto it to use towards payment for our vacation when I book it. Does the card have a time limit or can I just hold onto it until I book and use it as a down payment? I have used several GC's for payment on past vacations, they were just used within a month or so of getting them. Thanks for any info on this!

I'm subscribing to hear the answers. I know the points you earn on the Disney Visa can expire before you cash them in but I'm not sure about the card itself.

RWDavis2, I was actually referring to a Disney Gift Card you can buy. The answer about the rewards card is once you have points put on a card, that card DOES expire within a year. At least that is what I have been told by the credit card company when I redeem my points and have them put on a rewards card. Maybe I answered your question????

It may depend on where you buy it. I know that Massachusetts recently passed a law stating that a purchased gift card must have any expiration date clearly noted, or it cannot expire less than 5 years after date of purchase. Gift cards bought here also cannot charge a "monthly fee" for maintaining the cards. (There was a huge uproar about people trying to use mall gift cards that they had gotten for Christmas only to find that monthly fees had significantly reduced or destroyed the cards' value or that the cards had expired.)

Your best bet is to contact Disney and ask. Or go to a Disney store and ask.

I do not think that an actual gift card expires.. I could be wrong though. I have one for about 8 months now.. it has over $125 on it.
