It really depends so much on CMs.... I had no trouble 3 different times using 12-25 $50 gc to pay off my resort ressie on the phone. However, i have called 3 times to buy our AP tickets with gc's and every cm states you can only use 2 forms of payment at a time and each gc counts as one. The cm's say you can use limitless number of gift cards at guest relations snd to wait until I go to the park. Lets just say I don't like waiting to the last minute... Several people on forum report they have been able to do on the phone, so i'll keep trying.

I just called about 2 weeks ago and paid down $900 on our reservation with a combination of $50 and $25 gift cards. The CM was wonderful and very patient. Easy as pie!!

Thank you for this post! We are going in July and planned on buying the gift cards through the SCRIP program for our school. We 2% back off tuition and a Disney vacation we going on anyway! I just wasn't sure how to use the GC to pay off the ressie!

It's not worth the hassle for the 5% discount using the target red card to purchase them in $50 increments. If you happen to be spending $2,000 it will save you $100- but if you need to cancel your trip because of an emergency guess what? You're stuck with 2k in disney gift cards!!

I don't think the gift cards expire. We go often enough we would use them eventually, either at the parks, the Disney store in town, or DCL.
