You can use them in the gift shops at the parks and some of the food vendors accept them. I'd just ask to make sure. Gift Shops though for sure! I used one on the last trip I went on in the stores on main street at MK.

Not sure what you mean by "regular" stores -- basically, the card can be used at any entity owned/operated by the Walt Disney Company (WDW, DL, DCL, and their websites).

Yep. In general, anytime at Disney that you could use a credit card, you can use a Disney Gift Card.

basically I was asking if they can only be used at Disney related stores, not stores like walmart, k-mart etc.

I was hoping they could be used all over, and not just disney. But ok, then that is strickly vacation money then

It is a "gift card" for Disney, not a credit card. I used mine to pay off my hotel bill and paid for every meal with them, plus some
souvies.

Oh I get that. Its just that sometimes the visa Gift cards can be used anywhere. As well as i know that store gift cards are only used at the store. I was just making sure that this was a "store only" type card.

thank you all for the info!
