    How do we use our on board credits to make purchases? Also I will be cashing in point to get a card from my Disney Visa card, how do I use this when paying? Thanks

    Ahoy Dianne –

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for asking this excellent question that is near and dear to my heart - shopping! On board credits will be applied to your account from the first day of your cruise and can be used for any of your spending. When you check in at the cruise terminal, you will be given a Key to the World card that will be your room key and also your charge card while you are onboard. Feel free to shop while on your cruise and the charges will be calculated to your account.  Your Key to the World card can also be used for spa purchases, in all of the shops onboard, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Palo, Remy and in the bars for specialty drinks. On your last day, you will get a printout of all the charges that will be posted to the credit card you used to secure your booking. I love to visit the shops while cruising to get name brand luxury purses, designer sunglasses, perfumes, as well as Disney memorabilia duty-free and discounted with my Castaway Club status. My pirate crew also takes advantage of the Disney Visa Card Perks.  Once you cash in your points from Disney Visa, you will receive a Disney Gift Card in the mail. Make sure that you allow at least 3 weeks for the card to arrive by mail.  When you board your Disney cruise, bring your gift cards with you and drop them off at Guest Services, Deck 3 Midship. The balance of the gift card will be added to your onboard credits.  At the end of the cruise, any unused money will be added back to your gift card, so make sure that you keep it just in case. Dianne, we hope that you have a fabulous time on your Disney cruise and thanks for stopping by!
