    Hello, 2 part question, if paying with disney gift cards,do i give them to the person that checks us in at the port? Also if i pay my cruise balance well in advance do i have to wait until I'm 120 days to schedule excursions?

    Ahoy, Monique!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question!

    Disney Gift Cards can be used several ways in conjunction with your Disney Cruise. You can use the gift cards to pay for your cruise before you sail, credit your stateroom account for onboard spending, and gift cards can also be used in the onboard gift shops.

    If you'd like to use Disney Gift Cards to pay off your cruise before you sail, simply call Disney Cruise Line at 1-800-951-3532 and speak with an agent. They will be more than happy to help! Make sure to have your reservation number handy when you call. If you'd like to use your gift cards for onboard purchases, just visit the Guest Services desk in the lobby and they can credit your stateroom account.

    I see from a previous question you asked on the site that this will be your fourth Disney Cruise. As a Silver Castaway Club member, you'll be able to make Port Adventure reservations starting at the 90-day mark, once your balance is paid in full.

    Hope this information is helpful! Please come back and visit us here at the Moms Panel if we can help answer any more questions before you sail.

    Happy planning, and have a magical day! - Diane W.
