    I’ve been combining gift cards and using them to pay on my cruise. If for some reason I have to cancel I know it will go back on the gift card but how does this work if it exceeds the $1000 limit

    Ahoy there, Melissa!

    Welcome aboard planDisney, where we are all about smooth sailing for your Disney Cruise Line vacation. Your question is an interesting one and several of my planDisney pals have been researching the correct answer for you.

    First and foremost, we are all hoping that you don’t have to cancel your vacation! Yet we know all too well that things change and plans can go overboard. So, here is some information and a few recommendations that I hope will put your mind at ease.

    For your peace of mind, I encourage you to purchase the Disney Cruise Line Vacation Protection Plan. Personally, I always add this vacation protection to my Disney Cruise Line vacations. Now, you must add this to your reservation before your final payment and it does not take effect until your final payment has been made. So, if you haven’t made your final payment, there is still time to add it. Once you make your final payment, if you must cancel for any of the covered circumstances, you will be entitled to a refund per the terms of the plan.

    All Disney Cruise Line refunds are issued to the original form of payment. If you used one Disney Gift Card that was reloaded and/or consolidated and the total you paid exceeded $1,000, you will need to call the contact number on the back of the gift card to confirm how your refund will be issued. But never fear, Melissa, you will be issued a refund of the total you are due!

    If you need to cancel your cruise, you may do so online via the My Reservations tab under “Modify Reservation.” You can also call the Disney Cruise Line Contact Center. Let’s hope this is information that you will not need to navigate.

    I have one final fun tip to offer. Like you, I consolidate funds (currently the limit per card is $1,000) from various gift cards to one single card. I always like to purchase an unusual design for that single card so I can easily identify which magical card I should use, plus it makes me smile each time I use it.

    Thanks for sailing by with your question, Melissa. I hope it will be anchor’s aweigh for your cruise and everything goes according to plans. All of us here at planDisney wish you smooth sailing and look forward to seeing you again with any other questions you may have!

    Bon voyage,
