Top 10 Ways to Save Money for Your Disney Trip and Reduce Expenses

ROOM entrance

We’ve been passholders for several years now and people are always asking us to help them plan their trips, including ways to save money for their planned Disney trip. We live 10 hours away from Walt Disney World, so even though we’re annual passholders, we do indeed still have to be disciplined to save for our trips.

Why I Love my Disney Rewards Visa

rewards card

 I have a Disney Visa card very similar to the ones shown above, only mine is extra special.  Why?  Because mine also says "Cardmember Since Day 1" and, under my name, it also says "Charter Cardmember".  If memory serves me right, we got the offer to become charter members of the Disney  Visa not long after our first family trip, when we took our then recently-turned-5-year-old daughter for her first visit.  It seemed silly to turn down the  chance to earn Disney rewards simply for … [Read more...]
