    If I pay my Disney vacation package with Disney gift cards and then I have to cancel for whatever reason, how will I be reimbursed?

    Hiya, Susan!

    Welcome back to planDisney. I am so very glad that you continue to bring your questions to us. And this is an excellent one! Disney Gift Cards are a great way to pay for some or even all of an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. I personally get these as gifts quite often, because my Ohana knows how much I love to travel to The Most Magical Place on Earth. You can also get great deals on these gift cards from several major retailers. Who doesn't love to save a little money on their magical adventure? 

    Sadly, we sometimes have to postpone or even cancel our trip to the magic. As my pal, Sebastian says, "The human's a mess.". Sometimes life does get a little messy, and we have no choice but to cancel plans. When this situation arises, all refunds are given back to the original payment method or methods that were used when purchasing your trip. So, if you paid for your trip by using a credit card and a gift card the funds used from each would be returned to each card separately. If you paid with several gift cards, the balance used would be returned to each individual card. So be sure to hang on to any physical cards or digital card confirmation numbers until after your trip. 

    Susan, I do truly hope that a cancelation is not in your future. This is such a great year to visit. Walt Disney World is currently in the middle of The World's Most Magical Celebration. There are so many new and exciting things happening in all four theme parks. I am personally a huge fan of the new nighttime spectacular, Harmonious. You will find this amazing combination of spectacular music, fireworks, and moving fountains at EPCOT. This show is a must-see! 

    We hope to see ya real soon!
