    Disney Gift Cards? [Can they be used for dining?]

    I was wondering if you can use Disney Gift Cards at food locations? In particular Blue Bayou, Cafe Orleans, Big Thunder BBQ, . Does anyone know of a food location where they are not accepted?
    Thanks

    Canada, eh

    You shouldn't run into any problems using gift cards at any of the counter service or table service locations. They can't be used at any of the food carts (popcorn, churros, etc.), however.

    As for Big Thunder BBQ, I'm really not sure. Hopefully someone else can help you out there.

    They are not accepted at places like Churro carts, popcorn, etc.. Big Thunder Celebration BBQ hasn't opened, however, I would think it would be accepted. I'd ask when you make the ressie.

    FWIW, carts that are more permanent CAN take the giftcards...I've used mine many times at the fruit cart on main street and at the coffee "cart" to the left of the castle, the fruit "cart" near-ish bug's land, etc.

    Also, the Roundup area was definitely set up for cards (which generally means they can take giftcards) last holiday season, as we used a card to pay for a decorate-your-own-cookie there. They had NOT been set up for that the year before. Now of course I realize that it was likely all with the icky bbq place (vegetarian here wondering why they are having a bbq near farm animals...makes me a bit sick to think about it) in mind...and I can't imagine they would take AWAY the ability to use cards...and so if they can still use cards there I imagine (from what CMs have told me) they will also be able to use giftcards.

    Whew, that was long-winded.

    You might want to check out some other threads here on MousePad. Here's one from a year ago about good vegetarian options at the DLR. You can find others by searching the forums for "vegetarian." Have a great trip!

    That's a good post you were pointed to, except it was kind of confusing with the "is the stock meat based" etc stuff.

    I have since had a long convo with Chef Chris, the guy in charge of talking with people with food issues and allergies, and I am so happy with the veggie food.

    I love the veggie platters at Rancho del Zocalo...the beans are not made with animal fat at all (they keep dieters, veggies, and a couple religious groups happy by doing this). They cook the things for veggie foods separately. Anything with "vegetarian" in the name is, indeed, vegetarian.

    I recently saw the Pizzetta Salad at Wine Country Trattoria, and it can be made without the meat on top,and it's HUGE. I like the caprese sandwich there (though I actually had a kid's grilled cheese there last visit). Penne pasta with marinara at PLaza Inn. Kid's meals of penne there or bean burrito at Rancho or Cocina Cucamonga. Vegetarian gumbo or chili in bread bowls at Royal Street Veranda and Pacific Wharf Cafe respectively. The ratatouille at Cafe Orleans...oh incredible happy tastebuds!




    Yay disney giftcards! (back on topic) I hope someone else can chime in with other places they can be used. (I'll tell you one place they canNOT be used, and that's at the Lego Store...Disney Dollars, however, CAN be used there, or at least they could in Sept '07 when I'd just *spent* my DDs and tried to use my giftcard there unsuccessfully. )

    My sweet students (and parents) just gave me a generous gift card! Can I use it at the WONDERFUL Napa Rose? We're going in August-can't wait! Woo hoo!

    I can't answer the question, but I've gotten gift cards that the people THOUGHT were for the Disney store or Disney in general, but they were ONLY good for the online store. I was kind of bummed when I realized that because I wanted to use it towards an AP. But make sure yours isn't online or "Disney store" only, because that will answer your question in that case.
