My apologies if this has already been posted, but I haven't seen it mentioned.
Got my annual passport renewal in the mail. I also have my birthday card from Disneyland that gives me $69 to spend anywhere. So I want to use the birthday card for money off my $369 renewal fee.
I went to the Disneyland bank to ask how do I use my birthday card with my statement I received in the mail from the Disneyland Resort. According to the guy at the window I had to come to DLand and renew there...it would not work to simply place the gift card with a check for $300 in the mail.
So I renewed at the bank with the gift card in hand. He took $69 off my price of $369, making a total of $300.
Its a pain to have to go there when mailing it in is so simple, but I guess the resort did not plan for what to do with the gift cards.
