    Must all purchases made onboard, such as in Mickey's Mainsail or Sea Treasures or Whitecaps on the Dream be charged to your room key, or can you make purchases in these stores using a credit card or Disney Gift Cards?

    Welcome aboard, Anthony!

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel and logging in a question. Sounds like you're planning on doing some shopping while on your voyage. I can't blame you and your family - there are many signature Disney Cruise merchandise onboard that you can only purchase while on your cruise. You'll surely be sporting that new DCL shirt or hoodie at your hometown, and you're sure to get a double take look from every Disney fan you encounter. For the gals, the Disney Cruise signature purses are eye catching to the ladies in the know. And the kids love their Disney Cruise line logo'd shirts and pins. If they like collecting Disney Pins and displaying it on a lanyard, you'll surely find a few special ones that are only released onboard the Disney Cruise.

    Shopping on board the Disney Cruise is a breeze. You'll be issued a Key to the World Card and all purchases that you make on board will be charged to that card. It's a cashless system once you are onboard, and you'll need to get setup either at your Online Check-In, or at Guest Services to have charging privileges on your account. Treat your card like it was cash. You cannot use personal credit cards or cash on board. You can always make arrangements with the Guest Services desk if you think you'll be paying your stateroom bill with multiple modes of payment. If you are splitting costs between 2 or more credit cards, they can help with getting your account setup accordingly. 

    I hope this information helps. If you need additional details and if you have further questions, please come back and ask away. We're always glad to help!

    Happy planning!
