    Can I still get my Disney Credit Card discounts if I show my card but pay with a gift card? Or do you only get the discount if you use the credit card as payment?

    Hi Meredith! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The Disney Visa offers up some great perks with discounts on shopping, restaurants and vacation packages. My family and I use it when planning our Walt Disney World vacations all the time!  While the discounts are a great perk, you can only redeem them if you use your Disney Visa credit card as payment.

    What I like to do before our Disney vacation is transfer our Disney Rewards Dollars to our Disney Rewards Redemption Card. It makes us feel like we have some magical spending money for treats like vanilla ice cream cookie sandwiches, at Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom Park. I may have a bit of a sweet tooth!

    Did you know that there's an exclusive Visa Cardmember Character Experience? It's at Epcot's Future World and the wait times have always been reasonable when I've visited with family and friends. There you can meet Mickey, Minnie, Pluto or Goofy and you even get free downloads of your pictures too! Just show the Cast Member your card. To view, save and share  your photos, tap your My Disney Experience app on your phone, after tapping your character scroll down and go to my photos. 

    Hope this helps with your planning!
