I have a question (or two;)), I know I've seen some if you use gift cards to help pay for your trips. And I was thinking about starting to buy one every now and then say when I go grocery shopping but then realized that in two years I would have a while lot of gift cards to redeem. Can you get one and just keep adding money to it? I'd like to add $50 or $25 at time when I have the extra money but would rather just have a few cards. Any thoughts? Thanks MW family in advance.

I know the one you buy at the Disney store you can add money to but not sure about the ones you buy at the supermarkets. The last time I bought one for my grand daughter at the Disney store I could add money to it. The only draw back was you had to add at the store they did not have the option at that time to add more funds on line. Maybe it had changed since then you can call any Disney store and ask. - Pooh147856  355.1 #24 12:48PM
Great idea, we do it every year. We get ours from the grocery store to get the gas points and use our disney visa to get the disney points double bang! If you are getting gift card from grocery store you can not add they are pre determined amounts. If you buy them from the Disney store, you can add to those. What I do so that I don't have all the little ones is I save for a little while then buy a 100. Or 500. Gc. You can call Disney travel to make payment with the gc or pay at the desk. I use gc for my whole trip including spending money. We also suggest gc for the kids presents for their birthday and holidays, that way they have their own to spend there. Then I writ their names with black perminant marker so I know whose is whose. - mmddgp  948.8 #7 12:49PM
Awesome, thank y'all! I was thinking of ordering the kids each a card with their favorite character for their spending money. If have to go to Houston (an hours drive) to reload cards at Disney store. Though a good excuse to go to Disney store. Lol - txdisneymomma  120.4 #66 12:55PM
I bought ours off disneygiftcards.com. they have a lot of different ones to choose from. - girlonfire  54.1 #102 1:07PM
I have paid for hotel/food and tickets with those for our last 3 trips! I have never thought of reloadable ones! I usually just grab a 25 or 50 at the grocery store! The poor cm that has to swipe each one of them at the hotel would probably appreciate a reloadable one lol. I just put a couple in my bag each morning for food etc. it's one if my favorite Disney tips! I don't miss the money but it adds up quickly! - brittandkell  487.4 #436 2:29PM
That's what I'm hoping it will add up in smaller doses and help our already growing Disney savings account and make sure we have plenty to pay for our trip and all the shopping. So do you have to read all those card number to the cm over the phone when you book your trip? - txdisneymomma  120.4 #66 2:37PM
I have taken some of the smaller gc and made payment by phone so that it's not so time consuming at the check in desk. So leading up to our date I call once or twice a month to make a payment with the card - mmddgp  948.8 #7 2:38PM
Yes you do need to read the numbers for each card and it actually goes pretty smoothly - mmddgp  948.8 #7 2:40PM
Gift cards are great. I get mine from the Disney store - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 3:26PM
