Disney Gift Cards – Register, Track and Combine all in one Place

Did you know that you can use Disney gift cards for virtually everything on Disney property?  You can even use your Disney gift cards to pay for your vacation.  Purchasing Disney gift cards can also offer you money saving opportunities (read about saving money with Disney gift cards here).

You can also help pay for your vacation by telling your friends & family members that you would like to have Disney gift cards for every Birthday, Christmas or any other celebration gift.  When you do that, you can amass quite the collection of Disney gift cards that can be difficult to keep track of.  To make things simpler, why not register your Disney gift cards online at www.DisneyGiftCard.com?  By doing this you can accomplish multiple things:

1. Track Balances: You can easily track your gift cards and their balances all in one place.
2. Combine Gift Cards: You can transfer / output all of your Disney gift cards into one single card.  Your travel agent will LOVE this if you are paying for your trip with your gift cards; take my word for it 😉  Also, if you plan to take your cards with you on your Disney vacation, you will only have to keep track of a single card instead of multiple cards.  You can store that card in your room, charge on your MagicBand in the parks (if you have one) and then take your gift card to the front desk to pay off your room balance before you check out.  This way you don’t even have to carry your gift card to the parks with you.

FB

Below I have created a step by step process on how to collect and combind your Disney gift cards on www.DisneyGiftCard.com

Step 1:  Go to www.DisneyGiftCard.com

DisneyGiftCard.com
DisneyGiftCard.com

Step 2: click “login” in the top right corner

If you already have an account on DisneyGiftCard.com, then you may login here and skip steps 3 – 5 and begin adding gift cards with step 6

Step 3: If you do not have an account click “Get Started

Login or set up a new account
Login or set up a new account

Step 4: Fill in your information and click “Create Account”. STAY ON THE VERIFICATION PAGE where you are re-directed and check your email for your “verification code”.

Fill in the information and submit to create a new account.
Fill in the information and submit to create a new account.

Step 5:  Once you get your verification code in your email, enter it & submit it and you are all set up to enter your Disney gift cards.

Enter your verification code that you will get in your email to complete your new account set up.
Enter your verification code that you will get in your email to complete your new account set up.

Step 6: Enter Gift Cards: Go to the top of the page click “manage cards” and “my cards”.

To add Disney gift cards to your account, click "manage cards" and "my cards".
To add Disney gift cards to your account, click “manage cards” and “my cards”.

Step 7: Scroll down to the Add A Card section.  Here you can name each card; you can number them or give them something a personal name like “Birthday gift from mom”; you are not required to name your cards. Enter your card account number and then the security code and click the blue “add Card” button. You will receive an email for each card that you have successfully added.

Fill in the information, on the left, & click "Add card" to add individual cards to your account.
Fill in the information, on the left, & click “Add card” to add individual cards to your account.

I have added 3 cards in order to demonstrate how this works.  Be sure to save one single card as your primary card; do not lose this card.  I wrote on the front of my primary card with a black sharpie so that I could keep track of it.

Tip: be sure to save all of your gift card in an envelope until your trip is over; in the case of any refunds, your money will be refunded to the card/s.

All of your cards, that you have added, will be displayed on the right side along with the amount that is on each card.
All of your cards, that you have added, will be displayed on the right side along with the amount that is on each card.

Step 8: Now it is time to transfer the balance from your card onto a single, primary card.  You can do this in several ways.

You can transfer the balance by clicking the “TRANSFER BALANCE” icon under each card when you are on the “manage cards” page.

One way to transfer your balance to a single card is by clicking the "transfer balance" icon under each of your cards.
One way to transfer your balance to a single card is by clicking the “transfer balance” icon under each of your cards.

In the next pop-up screen you can choose which card you want to transfer the balance from and which card you want to transfer the balance to.

The pop-up screen after you have click "transfer balance" under one of the cards.  Just fill in the information & click the green "transfer balance" button.
The pop-up screen after you have click “transfer balance” under one of the cards. Just fill in the information & click the green “transfer balance” button.

You can also transfer the balance from your cards, by clicking “manage cards” and “transfer balance” and following the instructions.  You will need to click on / select a card to transfer the balance from on the left & then a card on the right to where the balance is going. (your Primary Card).  After you have selected the card to transfer from, by clicking on that card’s balance, simply click the green “transfer balance” button.

You will receive an email for each successful balance transfer from one card to another.

Another way to transfer the balance from multiple cards to a single card, is to click on "manage cards" and then "transfer balance".
Another way to transfer the balance from multiple cards to a single card, is to click on “manage cards” and then “transfer balance”.
You will click on the card on the left from which you want to remove the balance & the card on the right is where the balance will go when you click the green "transfer balance" button.
You will click on the card on the left from which you want to remove the balance & the card on the right is where the balance will go when you click the green “transfer balance” button.
Once you have selected your card on the left, you will see this screen where you click the green "transfer balance" button.
Once you have selected your card on the left, you will see this screen where you click the green “transfer balance” button.

After you have transferred your balances to a single card, you will see a balance on only your primary card and the remainder of the cards will have a zero balance as you can see in my shot below.

You see that all 3 card balances have been transferred onto a single gift card.
You see that all 3 card balances have been transferred onto a single gift card.

Now you can also click the x next to the empty cards & delete them from your account if you choose to.  I would still recommend saving all of your cards, in an envelope, until your trip is over and using a marker to mark the card with the money on it as your primary card.

This makes is much easier to keep track of all of your Disney gift card money on one single card and simplifies the process if you are using your card to pay for your trip; your travel agent ((me)) will thank you for this!!

New Escape to Walt’s Wilderness Now Available at Walt Disney World Resort

Are you ready for a wilderness adventure? The new Escape to Walt’s Wilderness experience gives you a glance at the natural surroundings that became the perfect setting to accommodate Walt Disney’s grand dreams.

Fort-Wilderness-Escape

The adventure begins at Disney’s Contemporary Resort Marina where tour guides will greet you with a warm “Howdy! From there, the group will board pontoon boats for an eco-history tour of Bay Lake. After arriving at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, you will head to the shore of Marshmallow Marsh for breakfast on the beach. After fueling up, the group will travel by horse-drawn wagon to the Settlement and Pioneer Hall before hiking over the railroad tracks into a clearing in the trees for an archery opportunity. Finally, you will head to the Tri-Circle-D Ranch horse barn to meet the celebrity horses who live and work at Walt Disney World® Resort.

This 5-hour interactive experience is available twice a week and costs $109 per person, plus tax. Each experience is limited to 20 Guests. Participants must be at least 7 years of age. Transportation to Disney’s Contemporary Resort Marina and from Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is available for Disney Resort hotel Guests only.

A photographer will be on hand to capture photos of the group during the experience. Photos are included in the Memory Maker product. If you have not purchased Memory Maker, you will be able to purchase the photos a la carte. Each Guest will receive a PhotoPass card with a 16-digit claim code, which will include all the photos taken of the entire group during the experience. Photos will be available to view on the Disney PhotoPass website within 24 hours of the event.

This is the second event that has been added to the offerings at the Contemporary Resort and would be the perfect way to spend a non-park vacation day with your family.  The other event offered at the Contemporary is the Culinary Adventure

My name is Melissa and I am a travel agent with Main Street Adventures Travel Agency.  If you would like to add this or any other experience to your vacation package, we can help you with that.  If you have not already booked your vacation, we can start with a free quote.  All of our booking and planning services are FREE.  Melissa@PixieDustAdventures.com or http://www.PixieDustAdventures.com
