    I have recently registered on Disney's Honeymoon Registery. It seems they suggest asking for more money than what a gift may be worth. How do you redeem the unused portion of a gift? Are you able to use it towards anything Disney? Thanks for your help

    To get the answer to your question I just consulted Passporter's Disney Weddings and Honeymoons: Dream Days at Disney World and on Disney Cruises. This wonderful e-book is a great resource for anyone getting married or honeymooning at WDW. It is available for download at for less than $10.00.

    According to this guide, with the Honeymoon Registry:

    You select gifts for the registry from a long list of experiences, including tours, tickets, special events, meals, spa treatments, shore excursions, and merchandise. When a guest buys you an experience, the funds are credited to your special Disney Gift Card for Honeymoons, which can be used anywhere Disney gift cards are accepted. Because the funds are pooled on the gift card, you are not limited to buying the specific experiences or items your guests gave you—if Aunt Edna buys you a $100 dinner at Jiko, you can choose to spend the money on 40 Mickey ice cream bars instead (although things may get tricky when Aunt Edna later asks how you enjoyed your African feast!).

    You can even use the card to pay for your room-only resort reservation or a Magic Your Way Package (with the exception of reservations made through a consolidator like Expedia). If your card isn’t funded until after you’ve paid for your room, you may call the Disney Reservations Center at 407-939-7776 to receive a credit in your original form of payment up to the amount available on your Disney Gift Card for Honeymoons.

    Any remaining value on your Disney Gift Card after your honeymoon stays on the card. It cannot be exchanged for cash. However, the funds on the card never expire, which means that you could use your honeymoon money to take your kids to WDW some day :-)
