    Hi there, we are arriving at WDW in a few days and have reservations at POP century resort. We have paid the full balance on our credit card but have just been gifted some disney gift cards. Can we use them to pay the resort and have our payment refunded?

    Hiya, Jennifer, and welcome to planDisney! I just returned from a stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort, so I can confidently say you will have a blast. And how fun to be surprised with some Disney Gift Cards. Let's look at ways to use those on your Walt Disney World Resort visit.

    I spoke with a friendly Cast Member who said to bring along your original payment method and the Disney Gift Cards when you check in at the resort. The front desk should be able to help you apply the gift cards to your balance and refund your credit card. Since it sounds like you have more than one gift card, you would need to take care of this change in person.

    You can also call the Disney Travel Operations Team at (407) 560-2428 before you arrive to explain the details of your situation. This team will be able to advise you best.

    If you cannot use the gift cards toward your resort stay for any reason, I'd suggest bringing them along to pay for meals and souvenirs during your visit. Most restaurants and shops at the theme parks will accept Disney Gift Cards as payment, so it's half a dozen of one and six of the other, as my dad would say!

    Your visit will fall during the final days of this year's EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. I enjoyed sampling food from around around the world at the Global Marketplaces. My favorite was the Impossible Slider at the Flavors from Fire booth near Test Track. It had quite a nice kick!

    Jennifer, I hope your upcoming visit is practically perfect in every way. Please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
