    Paying gratuity with Disney Gift Cards

    Hi all,

    I booked the DDP for our upcoming trip in January, so none of our meals will have to be paid for out of pocket. I plan on asking for some Disney gift cards for xmas, does anybody know if these are accepted to cover just the gratuity of our meals while we are on vacation? My goal is to pay for everything we can with gift cards while we are there, so I'm really hoping we can do this

    Ok...for anyone else interested in the answer to this question-I've done some scouring on other forums and the general consensus seems to be yes, you can use Disney gift cards to pay for tips. The other option that I read a lot of other people were doing is room charging the gratuities and then paying off the room charge via gift card...either way works for me!

    I can verify that for you Amanda! We did it on this last trip in fact! Works out well if you're using the DDP but make sure you tell the CM that's what you're wanting to do so they swipe the right one to charge the gratuity to!
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Thanks! I was hoping someone would be able to give me a solid confirmation
