    Best advice for trying to book & pay for trip w/ Disney gift cards? We get a discount off of tuition at our kids' school if we buy GC's thru their program. Should I buy all the GCs before booking & then apply payment when we book? Or is their a bet

    Hey Jennifer!

    I think that buying Disney Gift Cards to pay for your Walt Disney World vacation is a great idea especially since you have the incentive of getting reduced tuition at your childrens' school. I also like to buy Disney Gift Cards at my local Kroger supermarket where they offer 4X fuel points several times a year.

    The only word of caution I would offer is that you can only use one Disney Gift Card to pay for your deposit. For example, if your deposit is $300 you cannot use three $100 gift cards to complete this transaction.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions about your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
