Going is Disney is always going to be one of the best vacations that you will go on, no matter what age you are. There is just something really special about Disney and if you can, you want to make it the best it can be. This means that you want to save money where you can – so you can splurge where you want.
Here are a few ways to use miles and points for your Disney vacation – and save some money in the process.
Use the Right Card
If you plan on using a Disney credit card, you want to pick one that will give you rewards and points where you need them. Make sure to do some research before you sign up for any card – certain ones will help you with hotels, others for food, and some might even come with some great introductory options.
Use Points and Miles for Hotels
Different hotels in Disney have partnerships with other hotel chains that you might have rewards points for already. You will be able to use these points for one of the most expensive parts of a Disney trip (and the part you will use the lease) – the hotel.
If you don’t have enough points or miles for your hotel stay one option is to buy your miles for your Disney trip. Buying your miles can not only help you to save money on your flights to and from Disney or to upgrade your trip to make it all that much better, but you can also use them to save on your hotel stay. This is a relatively simply process that you can do through different credit card rewards programs or airline rewards programs.
Consider Going During “Non-Peak” Times
Your points and rewards are going to go further during times when other people aren’t fighting you for all of the deals. Going during months when there isn’t as much competition, and staying away from any major holidays will help your money to go even further.
When planning your trip, you do have to remember to be careful about spending money – there is a tendency to go too far when you are planning a trip. Try creating a budget going into your trip and finding creative ways to stay on budget when you need to do so. You don’t have to follow your plan exactly, but you want to go in with an idea of what you will need to spend.
