    Ho can I add my Disney rewards redemption card and gift cards to my onboard cruise account before I sale?

    Ahoy there, Lorraine! Welcome, and thank you for cruising on in to visit us with your question.

    My family and I always pick up some Disney Gift Cards before we voyage out into the seven seas on Disney Cruise Line. I buy them with a 5% discount at a certain big box store with my Red Card, and then transfer the balance to one card. It's a great way to get a little discount on your Disney Cruise Line purchases.

    Although there is no way to add your gift cards or your Disney rewards redemption card to your account before you board the ship, you can head right to Guest Services when you board, and they can do that for you. It's a pretty quick and easy process - especially if you've already combined your gift cards - so it won't take up too much of your vacation time.

    Lorraine, once that's taken care of, you can use those gift cards for just about everything. You can use them for Port Adventures, for your spa or salon services, for onboard shopping, gratuities, and more. 

    With just days to go until you set sail on one of the amazing Disney Cruise Line ships, I hope you've got everything else in shipshape and ready to sail. Before you pack up and head out, I always encourage people to take another peek at the Know Before You Go section of the Disney Cruise Line website, just in case anything has changed since you last reviewed the information. Things change so fast, so you want to be on top of it!

    Bon voyage, Lorraine!
