    Do the restaurants in the parks and resorts accept American Express gift checks? My husband received several for Christmas and we would like to use them to pay for some of our meals.

    Hi Michael,

    To my knowledge, you will not have an issue paying for meals and services with your American Express gift checks across Walt Disney World property. Because you typically have to show ID when using them, talk with your front desk concierge upon arrival. They may be able to cash them for you, allowing you to then load up Disney Gift Cards with the cash. Cast Members are very familiar with Disney Gift Cards, providing you a quicker, more efficient transaction. Also keep in mind some street vendors might not accept your AMEX gift checks, so I'd suggest having a little cash on hand for those MUST HAVE light-up, spinny items or popcorn while waiting for the evening entertainment.

    Have a wonderful vacation, Michael, and thank you for visiting us with your question. Feel free to write us again as your trip approaches.
