Dis rewards gift card (points) for TS tips?

Does anyone know: Can I use the reward points from my Disney Rewards Visa (in the form of a WDW gift card) for TS gratuity? The Chase website says the reward balance can be used for Disney dining...I'd assume tips would be included? We have free dining, but of course will need to pay the gratuity.

Thanks!!

I guess if you got a Disney gift card through another cc rewards program, you may be able to do the same thing. But with the Disney Reward Visa, you can convert your points into a "redemption card" that can be used at any Disney store, restaurant, resort, etc.

Thanks PP! I called Chase customer service and he wasn't 100% sure, but thought I could.

We are on the dining plan and I charge the gratuity back to the room and pay my room charges with my Disney rewards. Only have to carry my room key around.

We are also on the dining plan, but I had a lot of rewards points that I want to use for tips. If I just put charges on my room card which will be linked with my Disney Visa, how do I pay off part of the balance with my points before it's all charged to the credit card? It seems like in the past, they do automatic billing and the balance on your check out day is done stright to the card. Anyone know?

Go to the front desk sometime before midnight the day before you checkout and ask them to apply the rewards card to your room charges. You can get them to apply it on the checkout day but it's more of a hassle since they have to reverse part of the credit card charge.

Thanks! I'll just plan on going the night before we check out and applying the rewards points to the balance. Sounds much easier to just have tips charged to the room and paying the balance off with the rewards points.

Thanks again...

Any discussion of tips on the Restaurant Board is limited to the Tipping Information sticky thread.

If you look at the first post, there is an FAQ that goes into the various methods you can use to pay tips.
