Disney GC with Travel Agent

This may be a dumb question, but if I use a travel agent do I pay the TA or do I pay Disney? I asked because I have Disney GCs (and have heard I can but more at a discount with my Target card), but I'm not sure if I can use them if I'm actually paying the TA. Thanks.

You can pay with your gift cards. What you'll do is give the gift card numbers to your TA and s/he will apply them to your package.

Excellent...I suspected as much but didn't want to assume. I appreciate your quick response!

Do you have a room only reservation or a package? When I have a package reservation I scan my GCs and email the attachment to my TA to apply to my reservation. When I have a room only reservation I just hang onto them all to apply when we check in to our resort.

I haven't decided what to book yet! So confused. RO or package? dining? annual pass worth it for discount? so much to figure out!

Your TA will pay Disney on your behalf. I have a dear friend who is a TA and is booking for a client who is using A LOT of gift cards to use on the reservation.

If you are confused, you are in the right place! If you are still overwhelmed with it all, I advise using a GOOD, Disney Certified TA. She/He will help guide you through all the decisions to be made leading up to your Disney Vacation.

Remember, TA services are free to you.
