    How can I get a Onboard gift card, I want to buy it for my daughter to use for shopping on board. Thank you. Hilda

    Hi there, Hilda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am glad you stopped by with your question about planning for your upcoming cruise!  I am certain that you will have a wonderful and magical adventure at sea with Disney Cruise Line!

    When you check in at the port for Embarkation, each member of your traveling party will be issued a Key to the World card which will be what is used for a variety of things on board such as stateroom access and onboard purchases.  The shops onboard do not accept cash or gift cards as a form of payment, but you can apply a certain amount of money to the stateroom account for spending.  You – or your daughter – can take a gift card to Guest Services onboard and have the amount applied to your stateroom for onboard spending.  Then, when a purchase is made onboard, it will deduct from the account balance.  You will have to track the spending as it doesn't show a balance on the receipt, but you can always check the stateroom account balance at Guest Services.  If you would like your daughter to be permitted to use her Key to the World card for spending, you need to ensure that her card is authorized to do so when you complete your Online Check-In as it will give you an option of which cards have permission to charge purchases to.

    There are so many fun and exclusive Disney Cruise Line souvenirs to purchase at one of the onboard gift shops as well as exclusive Castaway Cay merchandise at the two gift shops on Castaway Cay Island if your itinerary stops there!  

    I do hope you have a wonderful vacation with lots and lots of magical memories made onboard!  

    Happy Sailing!
