Visit Disney with FREE money

Visit Disney with FREE money!

There are lots of ways to make a visit to Disney affordable. You can start saving money before you even leave home! Check out the latest tips for getting MORE value for less!

Visit Disney with FREE money – Credit Card miles

If you are already using a credit card anyway (and who isn’t using a credit card??) get one that will give you miles or points. There are so many to pick from! I like the Chase Sapphire Card which gives me miles for every single dollar I spend. I use those points to buy airline tickets.

To make the MOST out of credit card miles you need to do 2 things:

  1. Use the card as much as possible. Every single point counts! Use it for small things like snacks at the gas station and big things like your bills! If you call your bill company you can easily set up automatic bill pay by credit card and usually for zero monthly fee.
  2. Pay off the credit card each month. You are only saving money if you aren’t incurring fees for using the credit card.

Visit Disney with FREE money – Gift Cards

How would you like to get $100 but only spend $94.99? What a deal! By carefully using gift cards you can do just that. When you have some extra money, purchase a $100 gift card for only $94.99! Put that gift card aside and when the time comes to head to Disney you’ll be ready for the trip of a lifetime – and some of that trip will be FREE!

BJs sells $100  Disney gift cards for ONLY $94.99 with no membership required. Other denominations are available, too. Buy the $50 Disney gift card for only $47.99 and prices include shipping. These make great gifts, too!

Visit Disney with FREE money – Ebates

Ebates is a really cool way to save money on things you are buying anyway. We’ll be shopping for school clothes and school supplies in no time. The money we save using Ebates can be put in the Disney travel fund for our next adventure to the Happiest Place on Earth!

Here is how it works. Let’s say you need to choose a few items for your Disney loving daughter to go back to school. Log in with Ebates, and look for kids’ clothes. I searched Disney kid stuff and went to this link on amazon. You shop as you normally would.  Within a few weeks the cash back will automatically be on your ebates account. Then, just request a check or your refund can be sent via paypal. It is super easy and those dollars add up!

If you love ebates, you can refer your friends and get a bonus, too! Get together with your friends to help each other out. You can send a little love my way and Sign up for EBATES with me!

    Can’t wait to use these tips for our upcoming Disney trip!

  2. Rachelle says:

    Sounds like a lot of great tips! I love how user-friendly they seem, especially since Disney can tend to be a little more on the expensive side if you’re not too careful.

  3. Nicole Anderson says:

    Some great tips here. We also gather a lot of points through the use of credit cards which are redeemed for flights and other things. It’s really about being smart with how you spend which helps lower the costs of upcoming trips and extras.

  4. Raghav says:

    Some great tips there and using points off cards is always a brilliant way to get discounts of free stuff. We don’t have some of the cards you mentioned here in India, so maybe not for Disney, but still shall keep a lookout when we are State side.

  5. Wow so many cool ways to save money and have fun. I have never been to Disney but I will be sure to check these out if I want to go. Thanks for the tips!

    This is an interesting way to save money! Especially for US citizens there are so many great CC programs. Disney is often so expensive, great way to save up for it like this.

    The Disney gift card is perfect, I think I few of the $100 ones would be required and it makes a nice 5% discount. I remember when I took my daughter I bought her an official Minnie Mouse pink dress to wear around the park. It was much cheaper than buying her one in the park, i did want to dress her up as Jessie from Toy Story but they’d sold out.

    Great tips on how to save money when traveling to Disney! I always hear about ebates, but I don’t shop much in general so it’s hard to get rebates haha. Hoping to visit Disneyland Sea in Tokyo soon!

  9. Jean says:

    Interesting tips on prioritising your spending. Disney is a much better experience to spend money on! Coming from australia most of these options aren’t readily available to us.
