    Hi Anna, love all the help you give! You said that you can settle your resort bill the night before check-out with a gift card, can you put the gift card on your account along with a credit card at the start of your trip for charging privledges?

    Hi, Patty!  I called a couple of the resorts today to just double check my information on this, as I had conflicting answers myself when I used a gift card over the holidays.  I found out that you can indeed use a gift card on your account at the hotel along with your credit card.  At the end of your vacation, the gift card will be used first, and then if you still have a balance after all that fabulous souvenir shopping, it will be put on your credit card.

    It really makes it much easier this way.  You only need to use your Key to the World card around the resorts and the theme parks, and it keeps you worry free about finding your gift card in your wallet when you need it and keeping track of the balance.

    I hope you have an awesome vacation!
