Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- My family and I wanted to keep from bringing so much cash on our vacation so we are going to load our money on a prepaid visa card. My question is can we use the prepaid visa card for everything at walt disney world also?
- - Asked by Kelly from Texas on 6/2/2011
- Kelly, I'm that guy who never carries cash. No I'm not the guy in front of you at the grocery store who takes two years to write a check - I'm the guy ahead of him who is paying for a pack of gum with a debit card. Uh huh. C'est moi.
At Disney World, I've never been at a disadvantage paying for nearly everything with a plastic card of some sort. I've even burned down a Visa gift card and a Disney rewards Visa card on property. The trick is to know your Visa gift card balance and not to use the card on a purchase that exceeds the remaining balance on the card. (For example, if you have $10.96 left on the card and the purchase comes to $11, ask the cast member to put $10.96 on the gift card and pay the balance with another card - or cash.)
The only situation where I wasn't able to use a card was with a street vendor before the evening parade, and I only wish I didn't have $18 cash in my wallet to cover the acquisition of an LED wand.
