    First Disney cruise in March (so excited!!), trying to calculate costs. Can port adventures be paid with Disney gift cards? Also, are taxes and gratuities included in the port adventure cost listed on the Disney cruise website? Thank you!!

    Ahoy Autumn!
    I'm so thrilled to hear you will be setting sail for your first magical voyage in March!  It won't be long now until you are relaxing & letting the phenomenal crew take care of you!
    Port Adventures are the best way to experience the spectacular ports of call Disney Cruise visits & the Port Adventure's team does an incredible job of selecting fantastic opportunities ashore!  When you are on your cruise vacation, the charges for your Port Adventures will be placed on your "Key to the World" card which will be linked to the credit card you place on file.  At any time during your sailing, you can stop by Guest Services & apply as many Disney gift cards as you like to your on board account.  Taxes have been included, but usually gratuities are given via cash after the experience is completed.  This is optional, but if you enjoyed the excursion, it is customary. 
    I like that you are planning ahead, Autumn!  Please let me know if you think of anything else!  
    Have a magical day!
