Our school's band trip will be going to WDW in April. Some of the kids are planning on using Disney gift cards or Visa gift cards instead of taking cash. Do the snack carts accept gift cards?
This is a good idea as we had a cart I was getting some popcorn and a drink that did not take anything but cash, it was in the AK just outside of Bugs life. Not sure what the deal was but CM was a bit difficult to understand, so we ended up paying cash, the only time I had to use cash at WDW.....We’ve always been able to use our disney gift cards at snack carts. Make sure you have a backup though because sometimes the machines don’t cooperate and they do cash only
Dh got one of the wristband gift cards at food and wine last year and it fell off his wrist without him knowing. Luckily we had other cards online to switch the amount to but I wouldn’t rely heavily on them. They aren’t a very safe optionI always get the kids Disney gift cards at the beginning of of a DW visit it gives them freedom to spend and they have to learn to budget. Plus, you enter them in the website and you can keep track of the spending.
If you're there in April and the Garden fest is on I would get the gift cards at Epcot. They are real keepsakes and the have a wristband.
An added bonus it makes it super easy to eat your way around Epcot because the gift cards scan faster than debit/credit and you will physically age waiting for change.
This is a super pro tip that will probably save you a good 105 seconds over the day!!
