[QUOTE=bransworld;1100009]For my trip to DLR in August I had purchased $20-$50 each week in gift cards when I went to the grocery store. So by the time the trip came up I had like $800 in gift cards for spending money. What I ended up doing was using my room key for all of my purchases and then I paid off my room charges with the gift cards. This way I didn’t have to carry a bunch of gift cards around with me. Now the only issue with this was that it took quite a awhile to process all of the gift cards at the front desk. But it worked out in the end.[/QUOTE]
That’s exactly what I did. Put all your charges on the room key card, and then process at guest services the payment with the gift cards. I don’t know if anyone else has problems using the gift cards throughout Disney, but lots of time, the register wouldn’t read the card, so they would say it doesn’t work, then you have to request them to input manually and then it would. Just too much trouble, so using the room key card is so much easier.
