    Do you think it is a good idea to give my niece and nephews gift cards for our upcoming trip to Disney World? I'm worried they might not be able to use the gift cards in all the shops and I want to make sure they have the experience they deserve. Thank You

    Hi there, Cheryl!

    Disney Gift Cards are a terrific idea! They'll help your niece and nephew in budgeting and  in making good decisions.

    Per its official Web site. "The Disney Gift Card can be used to purchase Theme Park admission tickets and annual passes. It may also be used at Disney owned and operated merchandise, dining and recreation locations where credit cards are currently accepted. Some carts, and other outdoor Merchandise vendors may not be able to accept the gift card." But all of the stores inside the Parks will accept the card, as well as most restaurants, and most stores at Downtown Disney.

    The list of approved vendors is much longer than the other list; I think you'll find they will have a World of shopping possibilities on their magical trip.

    Have a great time!

    See you later, celebrator,
