    I have just paid our balance for our upcoming trip; however, we just received our travel rewards card. Can I credit my credit card and pay with the travel reward card?

    Hello Erica!

    I love a good deal, or finding ways to stretch our budget on our Walt Disney World vacations! I believe you are talking about a Disney Rewards Redemption Card that allows Disney Rewards Visa Cardholders to redeem their credit card rewards for Disney travel and merchandise. Disney Rewards Redemption Cards can be used like a gift card at most Disney-owned and operated locations. We have been Disney Rewards Visa Cardholders for many years and I love the fun designs and perks! When I have to pay something unpleasant like a recent large dental bill, I think to myself, “Well, that will buy me a Mickey Bar!”

    I’m not sure if Disney would be willing to reverse charges on an already processed payment. You will need to call and speak with a Cast Member who could look specifically at your account to see what was possible. If you are not able to reallocate your payment, never fear, you can still use that Disney Rewards Redemption Card! We always bring our loaded card with us to pay for dining and souvenirs. There are so many fun possibilities! Go out for dinner, upgrade your theme park tickets to Park Hopper, add a day at Disney’s Blizzard Beach, or pick up that coveted souvenir at Uptown Jewelers or The Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A.

    You can use a Disney Rewards Redemption Card at Disney-owned and operated locations. Do be aware for your planning, that restaurants and dining owned by third-party companies usually do not accept them. This includes many locations at Disney Springs and a few locations in World Showcase at Epcot.

    Whichever way you decide to use your rewards, I hope you have fun with them!
