    We are sailing on the Disney Dream in 60 days! We don't have a credit card and I chose to pay cash at the end of our cruise and read where there is a $300 limit when using cash, can I add cash during the cruise or are we limited to $300 total?

    Welcome aboard, Jennifer! I bet you have your Disney Dream countdown in full effect at your house right now! We always do at that point! Only a few more weeks until you walk onto the Dream and the Cast Members announce your family name and applaud your arrival! What a way to begin your cruise!

    If you'd like to pay with cash, you can go to Guest Services when you arrive and give them the cash you'd like to add to your account. This will go onto your stateroom account as a credit. If you want to add, say $700, go ahead. The limit you mentioned is a limit that you can spend before you need to pay cash onto your account. However, if you put down a certain amount upfront as a credit, you can use your Key To The World Card to spend up to that amount before you'd need to put any more cash on your account. 

    Alternately, what my family likes to do is set a budget beforehand and call DIsney Cruise Line a couple weeks before we set sail to pay a credit to our account so when we arrive our stateroom account already has a credit, all ready for us to spend! If you don't have a credit card, you can still add a credit to your account before sailing with your debit card, basically using cash right from your checking account.

    Should you come to the end of the cruise and find you've not used all the credit you deposited, stop by Guest Services to get your refund. 

    I hope that helps as you continue to prepare for your magical sailing, Jennifer! Let me know if I can help with anything else over these next few weeks before you set sail!
