No, they don't expire.

I do a fair amount of traveling, from as north as Santa Clarita to as south as Orange County, I'd like to get some next time I'm near one that carries them!
I love on the opposite coast and have never seen a Disney GC at any of the Target stores near me (and there are 4 stores). I must not be looking in the right place I see other gift cards but no Disney. Are they usually all in the same place, by the registers?

Nononono. I have never found them there! No wonder you can't!
They are in the electronics department facing out towards the aisle.
Ask for help, that is what the employees are for!

I just bought one today. They're usually on a separate rack from the itunes cards, but in the same vicinity in electronics.

As a sidenote, I used a $50 Target GC to purchase a $50 Target GC today. I did buy a pack of gum as well. My OOP total was $1.06. I don't know if the extra item made a difference or not. What's better, the Target GC came from Mypoints, so it cost me very close to $0. I recommend mypoints for anyone who shops online. I've also got $75 in Landry's GCs ready for some T-rex cocktails in October from Mypoints.

You are so fancy! I am terrible at all those sites

If I booked my cruise thru DCL, then transferred it to a travel agent, can I use Disney gift cards to pay off the trip? I was at the DCL site last night and can't see any "make a payment" now pages, although the site does say you can use it to make payments. If not, I'll just use discounted gift cards towards tips, onboard charges, etc.

Target has spend $100, get $10 off instantly online today only. They don't sell Disney gift cards online, but the deal works on Target gift cards. If you use your redcard, you will get free shipping as well.

You can use the Target gift cards for Disney gift cards in store.

Thanks for the heads up!
BTW, they don't have Disney GC's online, but they do have iTunes and various others... Just bought $110 worth of iTunes, Olive Garden and AMC GC's for $95 online with my REDcard!
