    Leaving for Disney in 8 days! We have a party of six. Can each member of our party apply their own gift cards to their individual Key to the World card, or do they have to be applied to the room charge We are staying in the Finding Nemo Suites. Thanks!

    Hi Wanda!

    You can pay for charges made to your Key to the World card with Disney gift cards, but the gift cards are not attached to your Key to the World cards.  When allowing charging privileges to your Key to the World cards, you must have a credit card or debit card (with Visa/Mastercard logo) to keep on file with your resort. Charges made on your Key to the World card are typically not charged to your credit card until after midnight on your check out day or upon check out.

    To use Disney gift cards to pay charges, you will simply need to stop by the front desk during your stay to pay any balances that have been charged to your Key to the World Card. You can do this as little or as often as you wish.  It's also a good idea to pay off any charging balances because Disney has a "credit limit" of sorts based on which resort your are staying, for value resorts it's $500, moderates is $1000 and deluxe resorts is $1500.  If you get close to that limit, you will just need to settle your balance in order to continue charge to your Key to the World Card.

    There is a a way to attach different credit/debit cards to individual Key to the World cards, but it can become a little complicated.  This is what is called a "share," this can be a lengthy process and sometimes will require a lead cast member to set this up for your party. You can also have charging privileges allowed for only certain party members,I usually just allow privileges for the adults in our party.  

    If you are going to be using Express Resort Checkout, make sure that all of your balances are settled the night before you leave.  When using Express Checkout, any charges that are made to your room will be charged to the card you have on file shortly after midnight on your check out day.

    I hope this helps and please let us know if you have anymore questions!

    Have a Wonderful Vacation!
