Rewards cards are a great tool for saving on any Disney vacation. You will save $700-$800 on the sign-up bonus alone, and some include great ways to save while you’re at Disney. Here are the top 3 credit cards for saving on your next Disney vacation.
Best for Saving on Disney Hotels and Vacation Packages
The Barclaycard Arrival Plus has a sign-up bonus worth $700 that you can use to pay for your Disney hotel or a vacation package. And, they waive the annual fee for the first year.
The Barclaycard earns 70,000 miles after spending $5,000 in the first 90 days. You redeem these miles as a statement credit for travel purchases at one cent each. And, you also earn two miles for every dollar you spend on the card. Finally, you get 5% of all the points you redeem put back into your account.
