    I'm buying gift cards to help save for my next trip. When I combine those gift cards is there a limit to how much I can have on the gift card that I am transferring to? For example, my trip is $7,000, can I put all of that on one card?

    Hiya, Tania! Welcome to planDisney. Planning a big adventure at the Most Magical Place on Earth? Hot dog!

    From Disney Resorts Collection hotels to Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars, Disney gift cards make saving for and enjoying a trip to Walt Disney World Resort a breeze.

    As soon I get a gift card, I register it on the site. I have one card featuring Minnie Mouse that was a surprise from work after a major accomplishment. That card is my favorite; it has been loaded and depleted many times. In total Minnie style, this card makes me smile, and it has become part of my Disney vacation traditions. 

    On the site, you can check the balance of a gift card and transfer balances to combine cards. You can have up to $1,000 per gift card and register up to 6 cards. Oh boy!

    For your trip, you can use a Disney gift card for the initial deposit on a Disney vacation package. With your reservation going from a dream to an item in your "My Plans" list, you can make payments toward your vacation with your Disney gift card, too. The site is set up for one payment per transaction, so you can do this multiple times (which I like to do to spread the cost over time). If you want to use multiple gift cards at once, you can call and ask a Cast Member to process your payments. Just make sure you have paid the full balance by the time it's all due, 30 days before your vacation.

    Once your vacation is booked, mark your calendar for the 60 days before your check-in date to make reservations for dining and Enchanting Extras. And if you are looking for a bit of fun as you are looking forward to your upcoming stay in the magic, open your hotel reservation in the My Disney Experience mobile app. There, you will find a fun countdown to the day you are checking into your Disney home.

    If you have any other questions as you get ready for your trip, planDisney is here for you!

    We've got ears! Say cheers!
