    Traveling on Disney Fantasy and I am wondering if Disney gift cards are able to be used for purchases on the ship or at Castaway Cay or is it solely room charges to a credit card? Thanks!

    Ahoy, Ellen!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Our family always makes sure we bring any Disney gift cards with us whenever we sail.  My kids usually get these from relatives as gifts, since they know that we frequently vacation at the parks or go on a Disney Cruise.

    While on your magical voyage, all of your purchases will be charged automatically to your stateroom account via your Key to the World card. These include any onboard purchases as well as your Port Adventures and any purchases on Castaway Cay. If you've already started your early check-in process, you'll notice that you are required to have a credit card on file that will be attached to your account. The most convenient way to use the Disney Gift Cards is to head over to the Guest Services desk and have these credited to your onboard account. If you are curious about any charges that have been charged to your stateroom account, you can always request Guest Services to print you a current guest folio.

    I hope this information helps, Ellen. Please do let us know if we can help answer any other planning questions that you might have.

    Have a great day!
