How to Use Capital One Venture Points for Disney

Whether you’re planning a trip to Disneyland, Disney World, Aulani, or Universal Orlando, their are some great ways to earn and use Capital One Venture points for Disney vacations. Here’s what you’ll get:

  • 50,000 points worth $500
  • Waived annual fee in the first year
  • Use those points to pay for your Disney park tickets, hotel stay or flights

Step 1) Capital One Venture Sign Up Bonus

The Capital One Venture card waives the annual fee in the first year ($95 thereafter). It offers a sign up bonus of 50,000 points, worth $500, after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. We’ll show you how to use this $500 sign up bonus toward your Disney vacation.

Step 2) Park Tickets, Hotel Stay or Flights

Here are ways you can use your points to purchase vacation packages, hotel stays, flights, or your park tickets. In each of these cases, you’ll be able to redeem your points as statement credit after you make one of the eligible travel purchases below.

Vacation Packages, Hotel Stays & Flights

Disney Vacation Packages, which include at least your hotel stay and park tickets, are eligible travel purchases. This is also true if you only book a hotel stay or book flights.

Park Tickets

When you’re purchasing tickets-only through Disney, you can’t use your Venture points because it doesn’t code as a travel purchase.  Instead, purchase your Disney World or Disneyland tickets through Undercover Tourist. Undercover Tourist codes as a travel agency, even when you’re purchasing park tickets. Plus they sell them at a discount.

Summary

I really like this card for three reasons. One, the annual fee if waived for the first year. Two, the sign up bonus is worth $500. And three, the points you earn are extremely flexible. There is a wide range of travel you can use your points on to help pay for your trip.

P.S. I don’t get anything out of it if you sign up for this card. But I think it’s just as good of an option as the other ones we feature and something you should really consider.
