If you’re looking to open a travel rewards credit card to help defray the cost of a trip to Disney World, take a look at this post on why the Disney credit cards aren’t your best option. In a lot of cases opening a top cash-back credit card is the easiest way to save on expenses associated with your trip, but there are other tricks you can use to potentially save, even if you have miles or points that can only be redeemed for travel expenses. For example, people have reported that when you make Disney theme-park ticket purchases through Undercover Tourist, the transaction codes as travel with Capital One and that means you’d be able to use Capital One miles (at a rate of 1 cent each) to erase the charge.
