    Using your Disney Rewards Card at Disneyland

    So, I have the Disney Visa Card and since it's been 3 years since I've been to the park, I've accrued a lot of rewards points. I know all the little park perks you get with the visa card, and have been told that you can use the rewards card anywhere that is owned and operated by Disney. But, nobody at the service center can seem to tell me if that's really everywhere in the park. (including Big Thunder BBQ)

    Do you any places that don't accept the rewards card? Snack stands? gift shops? restaurants? Or maybe you can tell me where you have used it? I've only used in the gift shops previously.

    Thanks everybody! Hope to see you in a couple of weeks!

    Last I checked, there are only certain locations it can be used in the park. They were listed some where... I'll look around..

    That's what I thought, but a customer service gal was saying that you could use it like a credit card anywhere that is owned and operated by Disney. I just don't want to go to dinner somewhere and find out I can't use it. I called Disneyland customer service and they just directed me to the chase website.

    Thanks for the info. I did not know this so it will come in handy for our trip next week.

    Re: Using your Disney Rewards Card at Disneyland

    Actually, I think the CM is correct.
    I know for a fact that I have used the Rewards Card (Not the actual Visa card) at Blue Bayou. It was a bit of a weird deal as the server was totally lost on how to use it, but the manager took care of it and it was fine.

    That being said, not sure I would use it at the Dole Whip counter or for a Churro....might be more of a headache than it is worth.

    Re: Using your Disney Rewards Card at Disneyland

    A little off topic, but I am curious about something with this card. I understand the reasoning behind wanting the Disney rewards card (especially with this crowd), but are the rewards actually worth it in comparison to what you could receive with other rewards cards? It seems that you only get 1% on purchases whereas you can get up to 5% on certain purchases with other Chase cards. Obviously it's nice to have money towards Disney vacations, but why couldn't you just take the larger rewards from another card and use it on the vacation?

    I'm not trying to judge anyone's choice of credit cards. I ask because I am looking at several cards at the moment and this is one of them. It seems that some of the other "perks" are the same as AP benefits, so I'm not sure there is anything that would convince me to get this card unless there really is some info I am unaware of.

    Re: Using your Disney Rewards Card at Disneyland

    Hi BFJen! I would think you could use the rewards card (the card you get for your redeemed points) anywhere that takes credit cards, or gift cards. So I'm guessing the only place, off the top of my head, you couldn't use it would be at ODV carts. I'm not sure either about the stores that are not owned by Disney within the park (Crystal shop, sillouette sudio, etc). I'm sure you could use it for any of the restaurants or Disney owned stores. But just to be safe, I would ask the CM where you want to use your points beforehand.

    One of the assets of this card is if you book a Disney hotel, vacation package, or cruise, it is interest free for I think 6 months (not really sure of the timeframe). But for discounts, I just use my AP, it's the same value, or better.

    Re: Using your Disney Rewards Card at Disneyland

    I don't take a Disneyland, or Disney World Vacation too often. When I do, I usually load a Rewards Card with the dollars that I have accumulated since my last vacation. I always take this Rewards card, along with some Cash, my Disney Visa, and a Cash Station Card on vacation with me. There are some places that will take the card, and some that won't throughout the resort. I know for sure that Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney does not. I usually ask, at sit down restaurants, before I order. When shopping, I may ask a cashier before I shop, in order to speed up the transaction later.

    Definitely, I just go with the flow, and come prepared on vacation, with many different forms of payment.

    Also, if you forget to get your card ordered in a timeframe that you are sure it will get to you before you leave for vacation, don't forget you can get it at the park.

    I actually wanted to use my points for renewing my AP, and I remembered at 11pm at Disneyland. So, I went to the Guest Relations on Main Street and they gave me my card very quickly. I just had to call in and activate it, which only took a minute or two, then 5 minutes later the points were used for my AP! It was really easy!

    Ah... I can definitely see the benefit of that. We've talked about possibly doing a Disney cruise. I may look into it if that's the case. Though I'm not sure if I would enjoy paying for a vacation after the fact. Seems a tad depressing.

    Re: Using your Disney Rewards Card at Disneyland

    When my kids were smaller, the free stroller was the best perk ever. Frankly, with 1% rewards and a 19% apr - it's not really worth it, but I pay off my card every month, so the APR doesn't bug me too much. I just like the cute castle design. It makes me smile. The little 10% off here and there is nice, but since I don't get to go to Disneyland like I used to...

    Anyway, thanks for all the comments. I will just have to ask beforehand!

    Kitty, is that the actual visa card or the rewards card? I didn't know you could even use a credit card at the snack carts...

    Some of the newer ODV carts have a computer with a card swipe and some will even give you the AP discount now.
