    I'll be traveling on the star wars cruise in march with my great-nephews and great niece. I would like to give each child and my nephew spending money to use on the cruise. Is it better to get individual gift cards?

    Hi there, Cathy!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  What a fun vacation you have planned with extended family!  That is what makes Disney Cruise Line vacations so great – there is something for all ages to enjoy!  Your sailing will be here before you know it and you will be off to a wonderful family vacation!

    How kind of you to provide some extra spending money for those traveling with you; I know that it will be appreciated by all!  All purchases made onboard will be charged to a stateroom account, so you have a couple options:  you can certainly provide an individual gift card to each recipient for them to take to Guest Services to apply to the stateroom account or you can alternatively give one gift card or cash to the adult to put on the stateroom account.  One final option would be for you, yourself, to apply a set amount to their stateroom account at Guest Services onboard.  Of course, kids love receiving gift cards and this way they would know their set amount to spend at one of the onboard gift shops or ports of call so that might be your best bet based on their ages.  But no gift cards or cash are accepted onboard, but rather charged to the stateroom.  

    I know you will have a magical adventure onboard, especially with a fun Star Wars Day at Sea on the schedule.  Many fun memories will be made; I recommend looking into a photo package to ensure all these memories are made into keepsakes!  You won't regret having these after your cruise is over!

    Happy Sailing!
