    Hi, will reserved dining auto charge the card I reserved with or will they still ask for my card after dinner and do they need the same card I reserved with? If I buy Disney giftcards at SamsClub, can I use mult GFs at the shops and the rest with credit?

    Hey there Angela and welcome back to planDisney! 

    It fills me with joy to know that you have so much faith, trust, and pixie dust in us. As an Elite Level foodie and shopaholic, it's my job to help you get your funds in order so that you can part with them quicker than you can say dreams come true. I'm glad to share what I know with you.

    While Advance Dining Reservations do require a credit card to be on file, those are just to hold the reservation. It won't automatically be charged unless you don't cancel your reservation within the required timeframe or don't show up for the reservation at all. Otherwise, you will be able to pay with the credit or debit card of your choice at the end of your meal.

    Now as for your Disney Gift Cards, I've definitely split my payment for merchandise between a gift card and a debit card before. But if you've bought several of them for your vacation, I've actually discovered a little trick to make your experience a little easier. You may be able to combine the balance of those cards by going to You can add up to 6 of the physical cards and transfer the full balance of them onto a single card for up to $1000. This way you can avoid having too many cards to keep up with while you're trying to make your magic.

    Angela, I hope I've helped you on your journey to The Most Magical Place on Earth. If you have any other questions please feel free to come back for another chat! You know we're always happy to help.

    Happy planning!
