Hi all! Not sure if this has been asked before, but I was wondering if we could use the Disney Gift Cards to purchase items at the stores in Disney Springs?

I did this but it was not the best experience. I had to actually purchase an e-gift card from their website using my US MC and once that was done I could apply it to the account and transfer it to the card I had.
The problem was they would not okay the purchase until I had contacted my cc company and had authorization done. It took days and a lot of effort. I would not bother doing it again. It may be different for you though. If you do try please report back. I would try a small amount first, say $25, before doing a big purchase.
Thank you that's good to know. I guess I'll just pick up a few US$ GC when I'm near a US Disney Store. I thought they might make nice stocking stuffers before a trip.

Yes, I used my CDN$ Disney Gift cards at Disney owned stores in Disney Springs with no issues at all.

    Has anyone used Cdn Disney gift cards to pay off Dreams Unlimited Disney Cruise balance? If so, do I just enter the gift card number? Also, how does the exchange rate work? TIA!

    I have made payments on my DCL cruise that I booked online, you just go to your reservation on the DCL site and choose Gift Card as the payment option. I am not sure how it works if you booked through a TA, but I think you can still do it. I cannot remember what I did the last time I took a DCL cruise when I used a TA (7 yrs ago).

    Thanks for replying! Yes, I booked with DU and it seems that Disney GC can be used but I am not sure how it works with the Cdn Disney GC as I have to put it the amount I want to process. Should I put in a note saying whatever the amount in USD on the Cdn GC?

    I go onto the Disney gift card site and see what the balance of my card is in USD - it usually displays the USD balance. You would have to register your card for this to work. Then I go to the DCL site and put that amount as payment.

    If you are only paying a portion from your gift card, you would have to divide the display amount (USD) from the CDN balance and find out what exchange they are using.

    I hope this helps!

    Yes, it’s helpful! It makes sense to check the balance first then apply the same amount. Thanks!

    Just keep in mind, if they don't post the payment today then the balance could be different tomorrow. The rate fluctuates and could change overnight then your total would be off. I would just ask them to apply the balance and subtract what I owe today with what I owe tomorrow to know how much was truly applied to the cruise.
