If you’re planning a trip to Disneyland or Walt Disney WorldDisney gift cards are a great way to save on everything from tickets to food in the park.  But they only come in fixed denominations.

So some folks have dozens (or more!) of Disney gift cards, which are hard to track.

Bottom Line

You can save money at Disneyland and Walt Disney World by purchasing gift cards with credit cards that earn bonus points or cash back.

The gift cards never expire, but they only come in relatively small denominations.  So many folks have to keep track of dozens of gift cards while they save for their trip.

Luckily, now there’s a better way!  You can transfer the balance from several cards onto a single card (up to $1,000) by going to the Disney gift card website and clicking “Manage Card.”  Then selecting “Transfer Balance.”

This will save you time and a lot of headaches!

I tried the Disney account and gift cards. I would stick to Disney gift cards and consolidate them like the above. I did pay my hotel bill at Grand Floridan with Disney Gift card so keep in mind you can use them at Disney resorts too!

The long-standing way of doing this was to open a Disney Vacation Savings account, use all of the Disney GCs to contribute to that, and then issue a new Disney GC from that account, but that all requires a bunch of time. You have to have had the account open for a while, it takes seemingly weeks for the new combined GC to issue and then show up in the mail etc. If you don’t have that time, this seems like a better option.

Are there only certain cards that can be the receiving card? If not, am I correct that I can by 20 $50 gift cards at Staples (with the ink card) and merge them all onto 1 $50 gift card. So the card would say $50 on it but it actually has $1,000 loaded on it. That does not seem right.

Great tip! As much as I know about Disney, and spending money there, I didn’t know this. When making a vacation purchase by phone or online you can only use up to two forms of payment and each gift card counts as a from of payment. This tip will allow me to make an AP purchase before arriving at the parks in November.

Thank you!
