Tim Allen Meets Buzz Lightyear at Walt Disney World

TAV705023-613x408

Tim Allen visited Walt Disney World on New Year’s Eve and he met up with Buzz Lightyear. As most of you know, Tim Allen did the voice of Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story, so this picture makes me laugh. I wonder if he stood behind Buzz and talked for him. I would have loved to be present for this meet and greet. Wouldn’t you?

How To Save On Disney Gift Cards

Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 1.25.55 PM

You can save 5% off Disney Gift Cards at Target Stores when you use your REDCard! Target sells Disney gift cards at the register for $25 or $50. Pick up the gift card and pay with your REDCard at checkout and you’ll save 5% off your total. (This also works for ever gift card that Target sales except for Target Store gift cards.)

If you don’t have a REDCard, just stop by the service desk. You’ll just need a cancelled check and they will activate your REDCard. It will be linked to your checking account and you will pick a pin code for it.

You can also pay for Disney Gift Cards with Target Gift Cards. So if you earn a Target Gift Card on a deal (they have gift card deals in their ad almost every week), you can turn around and pay for a Disney Gift Card with it!

I’ve also heard that total basket purchase coupons work on Disney Gift Cards. So if you get $5 off your $50 purchase or $10 off your $150 purchase at the register, you can use it to buy a gift card!
