    If I am staying at a Disney resort, but have a bunch of Disney gift cards I want to use to pay for meals and incidentals, can I use the Disney gift-cards to "Prepay" on my resort card that I can use charge expenses to my room and use that card in

    Hi, Kimberly!

    Disney Gift Cards are a great way to save for your magical vacation!

    During my last stay at Port Orleans French Quarter, I had several gift cards.  What I was told to do by the Cast Member at check-in was to put a credit card on file to allow charging to my room.  Then, the day before check-out, I went to the front desk to pay for my room charges with the gift cards.  

    The reason for this was that my room had a "zero balance" upon check-in so there was no balance to pay off with the gift cards (cannot "pre-pay").  It was no big deal to pop by to use up my gift cards and no charge was made on my credit card on file.

    Upon check-in, double check with your Cast Member on the procedure, but somehow they will make sure you use your gift cards to pay off your room balance.  Have a magical stay in Walt Disney World!
