    Paying for your trip with Visa Rewards Dollars?

    I know that you can use your Disney Visa reward dollars like cash on things in the Parks, but can you apply those reward dollars paying for your actual trip? Has anyone ever done this?

    We used Visa card points for a 2007 trip. We booked with AAA. We had to order our point card thru Visa and AAA processed the card. It worked just like using cash.

    Good Luck! Have a Great Trip!

    I haven't used mine yet but am planning on it. I vaguely remember a drop down option when you go into your Disney account and make a payment for using a Disney Rewards Card. Gift Cards are also acceptable forms of payment (I used gc's to pay my entire trip last time) and can be applied online to your reservation.

    I know you can use it for the balance at the front desk of your resort but the transaction has to made the night before check out, sometime before midnight.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    We used our points for our vacation package. When it got to trip, we used the remaining points on the speed boats on bay lake. There was a coupon buy 60 min. get 30 min. free.
    Our 3 older children took a 30 min. turn with dad. The kids had a blast and my husband enjoyed boating around the lake. We had enough points to pay for exactly the whole cost. If not for the points we probably wouldn't of spent the money!

    I booked my last trip through AAA and it was super easy they did pretty much everything for me, and there is a discount.
    Disney World is not just a place, but an experience.
