    Hi Amanda! Am I able to spend Disney gift cards at the shops on a Disney cruise? Or do I need to use the key to the world card and then pay off the balance with the gift card. I’d prefer to just use the gift cards directly. Thanks!

    Hi there, Andrew!

    I see that you are going to set sail very soon, how exciting! I'm happy to provide you with a last tip before your cruise begins.

    Yes! You are welcome to bring Disney Gift Cards with you to use in the shops on your Disney Cruise Line ship! Disney Gift Cards are also accepted in the shops at one of my favorite places, land or sea: the beautiful Castaway Cay. You can use your cards directly in the shops, or you can stop by the Guest Services Desk and have your gift cards applied directly to your account if you don't want to have to carry them with you.

    If you're wondering just what kinds of treasures are waiting for you at sea you can visit the Shops section of the Disney Cruise Line site and filter for your ship! From gorgeous art to sea-worthy souvenirs, I'm sure you'll find a wonderful way to remember your cruise!

    Before you say "bon voyage" make sure you download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App! Once you board the ship you'll find all kinds of information in the app including menus, activities (don't miss the incredible evening shows!), and a complete deck map to help you explore the ship! 

    Happy sailing, Andrew!

    Keep moving forward!
