I also thought I heard you couldn't use it for room charges. Best you could do was request a gift card for up to $500 from your dva to use for room charges.

They may prefer you use DVA towards higher price packages, but I'm not sure they can restrict use of the account and/or gift cards (by limiting how many you can use for a transaction) without regulatory issues. Also, since account number works the same as a GC on a transaction, I'm not sure how or why it could be stopped. Though, I could see a CM getting nervous they don't physically have a GC in front of them.

I don't know how DVA is set up as a program (banking wise), but I am definitely experimenting and accept the risk that I may not be able to use DVA the way I intend to. That's why I still have all the GCs and receipts, in case I have to back them all out and use individually on next trip.

I'm in a unique place of having three trips between now and Nov and being able to tie up some cash in GCs, knowing I can eventually use them in next 90 days, so I am definitely pushing the envelope to see how it all works. I'm not shy about getting managers involved either and/or raising a stink where appropriate (not at frontline CMs).

Sometimes Disney seems to make it hard to give them money. We'll see on this one.

If you live near an Ahart's, they have a special this week. Spend $100 on gift cards, get a $10 Catalina coupon for future grocery purchase of $50 or more.
I bought all the Disney Cards they had in stock, $200, in two separate purchases and got a $10 coupon each time. So don't let them tell you it's only for the gift cards pictured in the ad.
