Disney gift cards

We plan to purchase Disney Gifts Cards from our daughter's school script program. Where the school gets 8% back for every $100. I know these gift cards can be used to purchase the cruise with. My question is:

Can you attach a gift card to your KTTW card? Can it be used to pay for excurisoins?

Thank you.

You can add the Gift Cards to your ship board account which then would be used to cover any thing charged to your KTTW card.

Just make sure you KEEP the gift cards even after you have them applied to your account - either payments for the cruise fare in advance or your onboard account. If there is reason to refund anything, it will be refunded to the gift card! Excursions are charged to your shipboard account so yes, the gift cards can be used to pay for excursions and anything charged to your onboard account.

Enjoy your cruise!

Thanks so much. I called Disney and ask this question but I could not get the lady to understand that they ARE regular Disney gift cards, that say they can be used on DCL. That was a LONG conversation.. that went no where. She kept telling me I was being scammed and not to do. Even after repeatedly tell her this was a program we have participated in for 6 years. I gave up and hung up! lol..

With the key to world card, can kids use it to buy things too?
I was thinking about getting kids gift cards from Disney store to use at park and downtown Disney.
So after I check out of hotel I could use gift cards to pay bill and put what ever on my credit card? Kids will like buying on their own if works that way

We just got back from our cruise, and the cutest souvenir I have is my DS signature on a receipt from the pin trading outside the gift shop! He bought one pin with his own KTTW card and they have you sign one of those carbon paper receipts......:-) :-) they grow up so fast!

You CAN give kids charging privileges, but you cannot LIMIT them to $X amount. Depending on the age(s) of your children, there is little need for kids to have charging privileges onboard. All kids club activities are free and require no additional expense from the kids. The Arcade can be an issue if they are there on their own because sometimes kids without charging privileges will get others to refresh $ onto their playing cards - and you are stuck with the bill. Most foods onboard are free. On the Dream and Fantasy, Disney gift cards can be used in the gift shops. So it's your choice whether to allow the kids to have charging privileges, but you will sign off that you are responsible for whatever that child charges to your onboard account.

Note that there are 'Disney Store' gift cards that will only work at the store.
