I did transfer the max to one card, but it is not enough money for 9 tickets. The gift card system will not allow more money to be transferred to the one card because it already has the maximum amount. Put another way, the maximum amount allowed on a single Disney gift card is less than the amount needed to buy all 9.
Bottom line it is not possible to have enough on one card for all nine. Not a problem if it is possible to purchase with a gift card as I have a helper. Each of us can purchase our part on a single card if that works on the website. I was wondering if by phone can all 9 be purchased at once using both cards?
Now that you’ve mentioned AP discounts I have a question regarding that as well. I have a five day park hopper and had planned to upgrade at the parks on arrival. Can I just get the discount applied to a gift card when I get to the park and upgrade to AP? A family member purchased my current five day park hopper for me at a discount as a gift hence why I didn’t get an AP to start with. I realize I’ll have to pay the difference for the AP pass.
Unanswered Questions Remaining:
1. At what time should I call or check the website for availability?
2. Can I purchase on the website using a Disney Gift Card?
3. Can I purchase via the phone using multiple Disney Gift Cards since the total is greater than the amount allowed on one card or will it need to be two separate phone calls?
4. Will I be able to obtain the AP discount when I upgrade to an AP pass?
I have read if you upgrade to or purchase an AP after you’ve made pre-paid dining reservations you get the refund when you attend the dining reservation, but I didn’t see anything about events.
