Disney With Points and Miles

How To Visit Disney World Using Points & Miles

Several years ago, I was introduced to the world of travel rewards. I learned that by getting certain credit cards, I could earn rewards and redeem them to cover our family’s travel expenses. In fact, our very first trip using points and miles was to the Orlando area. We visited Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando on that trip. We earned points with two hotel rewards programs and split our trip up between stays at two area hotels within those programs so we could cover the entire expense with points. We flew Southwest using Rapid Rewards points. Also, we earned enough points to qualify for a Southwest Companion Pass, which helped us save even more money. We rented a vehicle for the week, but I don’t remember if we covered the expense with rewards.
