    We have booked a cruise for this summer. I heard that you can purchase discounted DISNEY GIFT CARDS at SAMS CLUB. Is it psossible or true that I can use the gift cards to pay the remainder of my cruise with pre-purchased discounted gift cards from SAMS?

    Ahoy Colleen –

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Wow, it looks like you have found a deal, and here at the Moms Panel, we love hearing about ways to save on Disney vacations! To answer your question, yes, you absolutely can use Disney Gift Cards to pay any portion of your cruise fare. It does not matter if you have 1 gift card or 50, you can call Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 and give them the card information to pay off the balance of your cruise. You can also purchase extra cards to bring onboard to cover expenses on the ship for instance, gift cards can be used for Port Adventures, Spa and Massage, and Gratuities.  My pirate crew usually drops off our cards at Guest Services at the beginning of the cruise and then we are credited the amount for onboard spending. Then we use our Key to the World Card all over the ship for purchases.  Any remaining credits that we do not spend will go back onto the gift card (so don’t throw them away). If you find Disney Gift Cards on sale, Colleen, then go for it! Thank you for visiting us here and we hope to see you back real soon!
