    Hi. Going on the Dream in 42 days!!I booked an excursion but wasn't asked to pay online. I want to pay before we go. Is there a way to do this? Also can i use disney gift cards as payment on the ship for items or only key to the world as payment? Thanks!

    Welcome aboard, Amy! It sounds like you already have your Disney Cruise vacation countdown in place! Those 42 days will surely fly by and before you know it, you'll be walking into the atrium lobby as the Cast Members applaud your arrival!

    Port Adventures can be booked ahead of time, so I'm glad you did this, as many do fill up quickly! You will see the charge for that on your stateroom account once you are onboard, and this account will be settled the last morning of your sailing with the credit card you put on file during check-in. However, if you'd like to put money toward your stateroom account (perhaps the exact amount of your Port Adventures, or a bit extra for spending) you can certainly choose to do that ahead of time. SImply call Disney Cruise Line at 1-800-951-3532. One of their agents will be happy to take a payment to credit your stateroom account. These payments can be made with credit card or even Disney gift card!

    Disney gift cards can be used in the gift shops onboard, or you can take your gift cards to Guest Services and have all of their balances added as credits on your stateroom account. Then, simply use your Key to the World card for all purchases onboard! If you find that you have credited more gift cards than what you've actually spent by the end of your cruise, the Guest Services team will be happy to refund the remaining amount back onto one of the gift cards. So, hold onto all of the gift cards, because you don't always know which one they might automatically credit. Then, you can refer to the number and know which gift card has a balance on it.

    I hope that helps as you continue to plan! Please stop back and let me know if you have other questions as your cruise inches closer and closer! I'm happy to help, Amy!
