    Can you use an AmEx or Visa gift card and link your Key to the World card to it for park spending? We'd like to not "overspend", hence the gift cards (instead of spending what our credit card will allow!) but would be nice to only carry 1 card (

    Hi Kristen,

    We always do this.  Upon check-in at your resort you will receive your Key to the World card.  You can choose to have charging privileges on it and give a major credit card to be held against it..  A limit will be placed on your Key to the World card and you can request to lower it if you wish.

    I often will call the front desk at the end of the night to see what my current balance is.  I think this keeps my husband and I more grounded and prevents over spending.

I have been fortunate enough to be on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel since 2008.  As a Disney World enthusiast, I can’t imagine a greater opportunity.  My husband, our 6-year-old daughter, and I visit WDW a few times a year.
