Disney Gift Cards

I've noticed many of you use Disney GCs to pay for your meals. Is there anywhere besides the parks & DTD where you can choose the denomination? My sister's family wants GCs for Christmas to pay for a character meal, but I can only find set amounts that don't work for my situation. I prefer a $10 & $30 for each person, but would settle for all $40 on one card. If I must, I can drive over to WDW to get them, but I'd rather get them closer. TIA

PS: Now that I think about it, I'm not sure I can get GCs with an amount that low at the parks either. Anyone know the lowest amount they'll apply to a new GC?

Thanks, but it looks like they only have set denominations. Am I missing something? My problem is I need an amount other than $25, $50, etc. I really appreciate you trying to help.

I have seen them at different grocery stores in a blank amount that you decide on at check out. Our local Kroger has them and so does Meijer.
I guess it depends on where you live and what stores are in your area.
The Disney Store cards are sold in $25 increments online, however in store you may be able to put whatever you want on one. I'm sure that we have done both $40 and $60 in the past...

Thanks so much. I'll check our grocery stores. I wonder if Target allows you to choose the amount.

Target sells $50 and sometimes $100 cards.

Walgreens sells the gift cards where you can specify any amount of $15 or more.

I received gift cards for my birthday and for Xmas and used them on my trip last year. I saved the cards, brought them to the Disney store at our mall this year and they were able to load them in whatever amount I wanted. Every time I had saved a bit of money, I would put it on the card to resist any temptation to spend it elsewhere.

BJ's also sells them, in $100 and $500 denominations at a slight discount, if you're a member.

The ones I've seen at Walgreens and Rite Aid are variable load, which means you can put any amount between $15-$500.

Hope that helps!
