The Disney Rewards Visa Card from Chase Bank is Disney’s official rewards credit card, and as such, offers cardholders a variety of Disney discounts, theme park perks, special promotions and advance vacation booking opportunities, and more. While not the best rewards card available, it does present certain advantages for those who enjoy visiting Disney often or for those planning and saving for a Disney vacation far in advance.
Disney Rewards Visa Card & Disney Dream Reward Dollars
The Disney Rewards Visa Card offers Disney Dream Reward Dollars on everyday purchases made with the card.Earn 1% in reward dollars on qualifying card purchases. One Disney Dream Reward Dollar is worth $1 when redeeming for Disney products and offerings. There is no limit to the number of reward dollars you can earn.
Request a Disney Rewards Redemption Card as soon as you have 20 Disney Dream Reward Dollars. Your Disney Rewards Redemption Card is accepted at most Disney locations. Only instead of paying with U.S. dollars, you’re redeeming the Disney Dream Reward Dollars you’ve earned. If you don’t have enough Disney Dream Reward Dollars on your Redemption Card to cover the entire purchase, you can use cash or accepted credit or debit cards to pay for the remaining amount. Reload your Disney Rewards Redemption Card with a minimum of $10 Disney Dream Reward Dollars anytime. You can use your rewards at the Disney Store or DisneyStore.com or on your Disney vacation for things like hotel stays and room charges at Disney Resorts, Annual or Seasonal Park Passes or MYW tickets, Disney Vacation Club annual dues, dining at your favorite Disney restaurant, theme park tours, Disney Cruise Line spa experience or shore excursions, theme park souvenirs, and almost anything Disney.
There is no annual fee on the Disney Rewards Visa Card. The card also offers 0% interest for six months when you or your travel agent books a select Disney vacation packages through the Walt Disney Travel Company or Disney Cruise Line and pay with your Disney Rewards Visa credit card.

TheMouseForLess recommends The Magic For Less Travel, a Disney-specialized travel agency that uses your credit card to book your vacation directly through Disney.
