Learn how to Travel to Disney for Free. If you focus on these Disney Credit Cards you can put together the family vacation of a lifetime and save upwards of $4000 on travel. This episode highlights which cards to work on after you’ve finished with the Chase credit cards plus whether you should focus on one trip or a general strategy.

Podcast Episode Summary

  • Part 2 of the travel rewards podcast series on where to go when you’re done with the Chase credit card options
  • Does it make sense to go after cards for a particular trip like Walt Disney World?
  • Brad and his wife Laura are both waiting to open up cards
  • If you are doing this with a spouse you can realistically each open multiple cards
  • The transfer partners we like from Chase
  • Why we like “fixed value” cards
  • To branch out to other cards or not?

Travel to Disney for Free?

  • If you’re a member of the FI community it would be hard to ignore the Chase cards to focus on a specific trip like Disney. In fact it is relatively easy to Travel to Disney for nearly free and depending on your travel goals you can delay it until you finish the Chase cards
  • For people not aware of travel rewards, a “quick win” like booking the Disney Dolphin hotel is a great way to get huge value from your points

Is there a Disney Credit Card?

  • Buying Disney tickets from Disney does not count as “travel” purchases for credit cards, so you need to use Undercover Tourist (or aRes Travel for Disneyland)
  • Orlando International Airport is a huge hub for Southwest, which is our favorite airline rewards program
  • Southwest does not limit award ticket availability – it is just based on cash price
  • You have a lot of flexibility with Southwest Airlines miles
  • Flexibility will help you succeed with travel rewards
