Can you use them on the ship?

Only at Guest Services to make a payment toward your account. The entire ship works on KTTW charges only (no cash or other forms of payment), except guest services.
Yes, as above.....the new Disney Store gift cards can be used onboard....just look at the back of the card it should list Disney Cruise Line as one of the places. If it does not then it may be one of the older ones that doesn't work onboard.
The new ones have been around for well over a year now. If you don't have a Disney Store nearby the cards can also be purchased at Walgreens in the their gift card section and some other retailers as well.
I used about 8 different ones onboard. (It was my birthday the week before and I asked for Disney Gift Cards). I had to put them all on my sign and sail account. They told me to hold onto all of them, because if they were not used at the end of the trip they had to go back on to the card! I think most of the gift cards say Disney Cruise Line on the back of them.
You can also buy them at Stop and Shop. They come in packs of 3 $15.00 cards. We just had a lot of them from Christmas/birthdays and put them all on our onboard account. They were all used up at the end... nothing left over for us!
We have a STACK of these to use as well We got a bunch for christmas for our cruise.
So, just to be clear, can we use the actual card in, say, a gift shop on the ship? Or will they take the amount that's on the card and put it on our account? I thought this might be a way to give my kids their "allowance" for spending on the trip. But if the amount will simply be put on the account it wouldn't be worth the trip to the mall to buy the actual gift cards for them.
No, the kids will NOT be able to use the cards. You will have to "load" the cards onto your onboard account then your spending is debited from there. The only card your kids (or anyone else) can use is their KTTW card. The ship is an entirely cash-less system for purchases. The only cash used is for tipping - either room service (at the time of delivery) or you can pay cash for your regular tips at the end of the cruise.
They are also available for ordering in denominations upto $500 per card on-line at:
If you purchase them at Biggs you get .15 off a gallon of gas for a $50 disney gift card. You can accumulate them to get gas for about 1.9 cents a gallon.You can get up to 20 gallons.
Also Krogers gives you cents off a gallon of gas fo gift cards purchased up to a $1.00 off a gallon up to 35 gallons of gas
