    Booked Disney Fantasy Dec.2013. Don't want to charge shopping, drinks etc on credit cards, wanted to give my girlls Disney gift cards for spending but read that can't use at shops on ship. Can we use cash or traverlers checks?

    Ahoy Diana!
    Welcome back to the Moms Panel!  I think you will be surprised at how fast time flies when you are looking forward to a magical voyage on the high seas! There are a couple of options that you have in regards to your onboard account. First, you can have a credit card attached to your stateroom account, but can visit Guest Services at any time during your sailing to apply Disney Gift Cards, Cash or Travelers Checks to pay off the balance.  This is what my family always does and even though they have our credit card number, we pay off the balance before they charge our card at the end of the sailing.  If they do charge your card, they will refund it on your statement.  Leading up to our cruise, we give our children Disney Gift Cards for special occasions so they always have "spending money" for our vacations.  The other option is the "Cash Account Agreement."  For a seven-night voyage, you have an onboard credit limit of $500.00 and won't be able to charge over that amount until it is paid off.  You can apply cash, Disney Gift Cards, or Travelers Checks on your stateroom account at any time by visiting Guest Services.  By 7:00am on the last morning, you will need to settle your account.  Checking your onboard charges is very easy on the Fantasy.  You can pull it up on your stateroom TV or stop by Guest Services for a print out. 
    I hope my suggestions help, Diana!  As you continue to plan, please stop back by the Moms Panel for more answers to your cruise questions!
    Have a magical day!
