Magical Disney Vacations aren’t always cheap, and many families save up for quite away to pay for their trip. One way many families save is to purchase Disney Gift Cards at Target where you can use your Target card to get on discount (typically 5%) on purchasing Disney Gift Cards. Other families purchase Disney Gift Cards at Sam’s Club, Costco, BJ’s and other warehouse club stores where you can typically purchase 3-packs of the cards at a discount, typically 4-5%.
The only problem with this method is that over time you accumulate quite a number of $25,$50, $100 gift cards. When you go to pay for your vacation, either you (if planning your trip on your own) or your travel agent must call in each Disney Gift Card individually to add on as a payment for your reservation. Once you use them as payment, you must also still keep the cards. In the event your trip is cancelled for whatever reason, The Walt Disney Travel Company will refund the amounts back to each individual card you used for payment.
Disney has a way you can manage these cards much easier, The Disney Gift Card website.
Here you can register and create an account and gradually add each Disney Gift Card to your account.
You can also use the site to purchase Disney Gift Cards as gifts for people. They have literally hundreds of Disney Gift Card designs you can chose from fro just about every occasion! Check out their hundreds of designs here. Besides being used for paying for your Magical Disney Vacation, Disney Gift Cards can be used at all of these locations: The Walt Disney World Resort, The Disneyland Resort, Disney Store, Disneystore.com, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney, Aulani – A Disney Resort & Spa, Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, DisneyMusicStore.com, Disney’s Club Penguin, Disney PhotoPass
Here are just a few of the awesome designs they have to choose from when purchasing a Disney Gift Card:
Under the “Manage Cards” section of the web site you can transfer balances from one card to another
For your convenience, you can transfer full card balances from one Disney Gift Card to another. You can transfer amounts up to $1,000, but don’t forget that each card can only hold a maximum value of $1000.
This is an excellent way to manage all those small $25, $50, and $100 Disney Gift Cards over the period of time you are saving! It’s less cards for you to manage over the long haul and even more important, less cards for you or your travel agent to call in for payments, which means less chance of problems!
