Can you use Disney Dollars onboard?

We are cruising with my parents, and it is their anniversary. I want to give them some onboard credit, for drinks, etc... How would I go about doing this? Should I just buy Disney dollars for them? Can they use them onboard as money? Thanks to all the Disney Gurus who respond!!!!

Donna

The ship works on a cashless system. Your Key To The World (KTTW) card is used as a charing mechanism for purchases at gift shops and at the bars. It is also used on CC. You can put money on your parents On-Board account so they will have a credit to spend.

Laurie,

Thanks so much! I would have wasted my money with Disney Dollars. Is this something that can be done in advance (putting money on their account)?

Thanks again,
Donna

Although DCL is on a cashless basis, they can make a payment on their account using Disney Dollars, Disney Gift Card or Disney VISA Rewards Card in addition to a regular credit card or cash.

If you gave Disney Dollars, it wouldn't be wasted. They would simply use it at Guest Services to paydown their account.

HOW DO I PRE-ORDER SHIPBOARD CREDITS?

You can call Disney Cruise Line at 1-800-601-8455 to order shipboard credits. Note that any unused credits will be refunded back to the credit card used to place the order.

Donna,

If you contribute to their onboard account ahead of time, a nice card will be waiting in their stateroom with a message from you and the amount listed.

What a thoughtful thing for you to do for them!
