We are going in May because my DH and DD both have birthday's in the same week. In liue of them getting in free that day, they are getting the gift card that you can get to use at various places (food, merchandice, etc..)

The question we have is this - what places can we use this card at? The WDW website says what it is good for, but then DH thought it said not good for food.

Any help?? The lady at AAA insists with all her might that it is good for food.

TIA!! :)

My thought: If Disney says its not good for food - then I would take their word for it over a TA's. If nothing else - you can try to use it but be prepared for it not to be accepted.

Everything I've read about the gift card says that it's good for merch, NOT food. Your AAA lady is wrong.

My DH found that same information somewhere. I told him he needed to make the AAA lady fully aware of that. How many people has she sent down there and they thought it was good for food?

I believe they removed this restriction right before the new year started (at least they did at Disneyland).
