    On a Disney Europe cruise, can we use Disney gift cards bought in the United States? Will we be charged transaction fees?

    Hi there, Karen!

    I am so glad you stopped back by with another question about your upcoming European Disney Cruise Line vacation!  It will be here sooner than you think and having everything lined up and figured out ahead of time will allow for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation for all!

    Your Disney gift cards can be used for purchases onboard at Mickey's Mainsail and White Caps, the onboard gift shops – and you will not be charged any sort of transaction fee for using them onboard.  My two boys saved up their allowance and purchased their own gift cards to be used on our most recent sailing and they were so thrilled when they were able to buy what they wanted in the gift shops!  I was perfectly content with them buying yet another pirate spy glass (I think we have four or five now…), but it was their money and they could choose how to spend it!

    Since the gift shops are the only places onboard you can use the gift cards to make purchases, you can also opt to apply the funds to your stateroom account for any other purchases made with your Key to the World Card while onboard. Any other purchases such as bar/beverage service, spa treatments, and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservations will be charged directly to your stateroom.  If you want to apply the gift cards to your account, you can take them to Guest Services where they will take care of that for you!

    Please come back again with any other planning questions you have before your MAGICal Disney Cruise!

    Happy Sailing!
