disney dollars ?

Ok so heres the question what do you all think.

We have the $750 gc for our trip that starts on monday

we have plans to use it HDDR, alcholic beverages and some souvenirs but my husband and I were wondering that if we use any remaining to buy disney dollars and then exchange them back for real dollars if that would work?

I know Im one of those people that if I save it for next trip I'll forget where I put it for safe keeping.

also same scenario with visa disney reward dollars??

I think the fine print says the Gift Cards from the CG deal cannot be redeemed for cash or Disney Dollars.

I know you cannot redeem GCs for cash, and disney treats disney dollars as cash, so I highly doubt you can buy disney dollars with the gc. As far as your Disney rewards, I am not positive, but I don't think they would allow you do redeem those for disney dollars either. Why not save your GC for a future trip?

How did you get a $750 gift card? Did I miss this?

from what i've heard you can't get disney dollars at WDW anymore

you can only get them through the mail with a $14 s&h fee or you can get them at Disneyland.

You can still purchase Disney Dollars at Guest Relations and at the World of Disney information desk (my favorite say Hello to ME(Julia) ) They are Cash for Cash so unfortunately no Gift Cards or Credit/Debit cards. Also one big thing there is only a limited number sold in a given day so make sure you get up early to get yours.
Hope this helps!
