Gift cards for your birthday?


#1

I am thinking about goin to Disney in Sept. I am bringing a friend whoose birthday is at the time we are planning. I would like to know if we have our passes(which we would already have) and she gets her gift card, does she have to spend it on that trip or could she spend it on another trip? She is planning on comming back a month after we go with someone else and needs to know if she could use it then?

They told me when I got mine in January that it is good for the day of your birthday only. The CM also told me that they have no way of making it expire that day. I spent half the day of my bday and the rest the next day at DTD.

So, unless things have changed since January, I would say she should be able to use it when she goes back 1 month later.

She should ask when she gets it. Would be awful to save it and find out she can’t use it. This is what is posted on the disney parks site:

I would suggest she used on or close to her birthday. While they can’t enforce an expiration date, I would hate to hold onto it and find out it is not valid at a later date.
