Disney Gift Cards Now Being Sold @ Target!

I noticed, today that Target is now selling a variety of non-retail gift cards --among them were Disney Gift Cards.

You'll find them in the music/movies section, near the CDs.

When you purchase the gift cards, are you paying the $10 activation fee?
Thanks.

There's no activation fee on Disney Gift Cards, no matter where you buy them.

Does anyone know if you get 5% off gift cards when using the Target Red Card? I'm assuming the answer is no, but the terms only say not valid on a Target gift card.

This is great - thanks for the heads up! We are headed to Disney next week so I can pick these up for the kids to have their own spending money

Can you use a target gift card to buy them? I hear some places don't let you buy a gift card with a gift card (not walgreens though, because I rack up those mypoints for a walgreens gift card, and then turn it around to a Disney gift card!)

I'm also interested in this. I recently received a $50 Target gift card and would love to use it to purchase a Disney gift card instead. Will be at the World in four weeks to celebrate my nephew's 5th birthday and would love to convert his to Disney $$.

FYI - American Express Gift Card Also Available

I was not able to find the Disney gift cards at my local targets but there was an American Express card. I was able to use the Target gift card I had to purchase it. I paid $5 for a $50 gift card (a $25 gift card is available for $4). I felt this was a good trade because the Target gift card was a reward for doing online surveys.

Are they the "Disney Store" ONLY cards, or can they be used at WDW?

Just wanted to share what I do for Disney gift cards....

my DH travels a ton and racks up tons of Choice hotel points. This year I decided to cash in the points for gift cards, but Disney cards were not an option, nor were Walgreens card(I wanted to use to purchase a Disney card).

I tought about getting a Target or Walmart card to purchase a prepaid AMEX or VISA card but didn't want to spend the $5 to get one of those. I decided to save myself the $5 fee for each prepaid card and instead I cash in the Choice points for $50 gas gift cards. Whenever I fill my car and spend the $50gas gift card, I go and buy a $50 Disney card with the $50 I didn't have to spend out of my budget for gas.

I have about $800 in gift cards now for Disney and between these gift cards and our Disney Visa rewards card, I will have just about enough to pay for 5 nights at the Beach CLub in May
