Here are all the ways you can use your Barclaycard Arrival Plus miles to save on your Disney vacation.
Disney Park Tickets
Purchasing Disney Park tickets directly through Disney will not code as a travel purchase. However, many ticket brokers will code as a travel purchase. And, you’ll usually save a little as well.
Our favorite is Undercover Tourist for both Disney World and Disneyland. We’ve used them multiple times and always have a great experience. Purchase your tickets through Undercover Tourist, using your Barclaycard Arrival Plus card, and you’ll be able to redeem your Barclaycard miles as a statement credit.
Disney hotels, including places like Aulani, are an eligible travel purchase with the Barclaycard.
For extra savings, we recommend using a shopping portal like Swagbucks to get to Hotels.com. A shopping portal will typically earn you 5%-10% in cash or points at Hotels.com who sells Disney rooms usually at the same price as Disney.
Flights are eligible travel purchases as well. This is true whether you book through Disney, a travel agent, or a third party site like Expedia.
Disney Vacation Packages
Purchasing a Disney vacation package is another good way to use your Barclaycard miles to get Disney tickets. While purchasing your tickets alone through Disney doesn’t code as a travel purchase, when you combine your tickets with your hotel stay, it does code as a travel purchase.
Food & Souvenirs
If you’re staying at a Disney hotel, charge your food and souvenir purchases back to your room. Because you’ll be ultimately be paying for them as part of your hotel stay, they’ll code as a travel purchase.
Barclaycard Arrival Plus
How It Works
