    I read that I cannot use an American Disney gift card at DLP? Is that correct? What about a Visa gift card purchased at Target? I do not like to use my bank debit card all the time.

    No, I'm sorry, but you can't. Those are only valid at American Disney Parks, not abroad. You will have to use your debit or credit card, or exchange money forehand to pay cash.

    This, or you can get a prepaid debit card but with Euros as the currency. That is why Visa gift cards purchased at Target and Disney gift cards can't be used as the currency is different

    Thanks. Makes sense now. I guess I just wasn’t think it through.

    I think then that the answer to my question is no, but can I use my Disney visa reward card there?

    Yes, all Visa cards are accepted at Disneyland Paris.

    I think I used the wrong terminology. Not the actual Visa credit card, but the card with the reward dollars on it. Like the “free” money we get for charging on our Disney Visa. I’m guessing since it’s American dollars and sort of like a gift card, that we can’t use it in the park.

    No, anything which is in American dollars and has been bought in America can not be used in Disneyland Paris. While Disneyland Paris is part of the Disney family, its physical location is in France. The currency of France is Euros, therefore Disneyland Paris ONLY accepts Euros, this can be cash, or using a normal bank debit or credit card.

    When you travel to a different country you MUST use the currency of that country, not the currency of your home country

    Not true in all cases. We Canadians can buy Disney gift cards here in Canada in Canadian Dollars and they get converted to USD when we use them in the parks or on the cruise ships in the US :)
