    Three weeks to go before we arrive!! I want to get prepaid cards to aviod carrying (much) cash. Can't decide between Disney gift card and a prepaid Visa. Afraid the Disney card won't be accepted everywhere in the World. Advice? Thanks!

    Hi Polly,

    Are you staying at a Disney World Resort? If so, you can add charging to your Key to the World card. This is what I do when I am vacationing. I bring maybe $20 with me into the parks in case a stand does not take a credit card or other electronic payment. However, with the dining plan being so popular even the small carts usually have an electronic payment device to pay for snacks and meals.

    The Disney gift card should be wildly accepted at the parks and resorts as well as a prepaid Visa.

    I hope this helps make your vacation easier.
