Onboard Credit Now Available to Purchase from Disney Cruise Line’s Onboard Gifts and Amenities Website

Disney Cruise Line recently added a new item, Onboard Credit, to the list of items already available on the Onboard Gifts and Amenities website which relaunched earlier this year with the the ability to order items online instead of over the phone or by fax.

DCL Onboard Gifts Onboard Credit Card

Onboard Credit

Purchase credit for yourself, family members or friends that can be used during an upcoming Disney cruise to cover anything that is charged to a stateroom account, including Port Adventures, spa treatments, beverages and more. Guests issued Onboard Credit will receive a card in their stateroom indicating who sent the gift, the recipient’s name and a personalized message.

Please note: For purchases of Onboard Credit less than 2 days prior to sailing, a card will not be issued, although the credit will be applied to the stateroom account.

To purchase Onboard Credit for an upcoming cruise, simply visit Disney Cruise Line’s Gifts & Amenities page and look for the Onboard Credit option under Shop by Category.

Searching for a passenger without an reservation number is simple as long as you know the person’s legal name and sail date.

Alternatively, you can enter a reservation number.

    I had no idea this was included in the revamped site and I’m now sharing this with my family for the holidays! Thanks for the post!

    If find it useful but I also find it a bit alarming and disappointing that it comes soon after they took away the onboard credit when you rebooked while on a cruise.

    Do we know if we purchase the onboard credit and do not use it all, would we lose or or does it go back onto the original credit card used to purchase?

        Thanks Scott , can you send me a link where it states this? I asked a few other people who only deal with Disney, and both said you must use or lose it. Chat not functioning and the hold times are ridiculous. Again, thanks for the reply.
