As we have discussed in a previous post, one of our favorite ways to accumulate additional savings for our Disney vacations is to collect gift cards at reduced prices and then deposit them into a Disney Vacation Account.  For each $1000 you put into the account, you will receive $20 on a gift card for your trip.  It is a 2% discount for each $1000 increment you add to the account, so $2500 gives you the same benefit as $2000: a $40 gift card.

Once you are ready to apply your Disney Vacation Account savings to your trip, you will need to request your bonus: a Disney gift card.  Enter in your travel dates and the gift card will be processed and sent.  Note that to receive the gift card benefit, your account must have been created more than 120 days before you spend the money in your account; Disney recommends requesting the gift card 4-6 weeks in advance of your trip to make sure you receive it on time.
