    Hello, we are sailing on the Magic in 2 weeks! I am living in Canada and wondered if i can buy Disney Gift cards online to use as my onboard credit? I really want to use my credit card as a last resort.

    Hi there, Nazneen! Thank you for stopping by with your question before your cruise.

    Sailing with Captains Mickey and Minnie includes so many things, from top-notch entertainment to delicious dining and fantastic adult and youth spaces. It's no wonder Disney Cruise Line is popular with families! If you're like me, you’ll want to pick up a few souvenirs and indulge in a cocktail or two. I’m happy to share that you can apply Disney Gift Cards to your onboard account. 

    The first option is to use your Disney Gift Cards to purchase Onboard Credit before you set sail. You’ll find this option on the Disney Cruise Line website under Onboard Gifts on the Already Booked tab. Once you enter your reservation details, hover over the arrow next to Shop by Category, then select Onboard Credit and enter the gift card number for the payment information. The second option is to stop by Guest Services any time after you board to have your Disney Gift Cards applied to your onboard account.

    Any purchases you make with your Key to the World Card will automatically be deducted from your onboard credit. Make sure you keep the gift cards for the duration of your cruise; any leftover credit will be refunded to them. If your Stateroom Folio balance surpasses your Onboard Credit, the excess will be charged to the credit card you provided during online check-in. To keep tabs on your spending, the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app has you covered.

    I hope one of these options is perfect for you. If you have any additional questions as you prepare to set sail, you know where to find us. We're all about making your vacation as magical as possible!

    SEAS the adventure!
