You have to pay for the entire cruise with the Disney Visa card, but you don't have to pay all at once.

You have to book the cruise with the disney reward card to get the on board credit. But as mentioned, you can defer the entire cruise fare and trip out 6 months same as cash...so it doesn't really matter if you have to book the cruise with that card? I think? I got a note when I checked into my stateroom saying that $50 had been applied on our onboard credit. I don't think they really 'apply' it until you basically check on board. By then, you will definitely have to have paid in full, in which case the 6 months same as cash was a big help to us.

We have had the regular one for years and upgraded to the premier early this year ( which just required a simple phone call to the person who asked). Yes we could probably get ac greater reward on another card but I lo ve that these are disney specific. Our last two trips to wdw the rewards paid all our food and souvenirs in reward dollars. For our cruise it covered all our onboard charges! The kids get more souvenirs this way! And I have to spend it on disney things...nothing practical which I would feel I had to do if I had cash back.

We love it...and the smiles I get when I pull out my card!

That's so true! I asked my honey how come we never get airfare with the Venture card (you see the ads, you know the Vikings?) and he always says because we take the cash back. Well that may be practical, but its no fun! This year, we drove to Port Canaveral from KY TWICE there and back (x 4 13-14 hrs each way! ) I wish I'd have had the airfare! I know that's not practical, but it's true.

So yeah, I'm with you. It's like "hey I paid for the items I bought on the card, and this is just free disney stuff" it's like a much less guilty feeling.

I'm sure Disney has us 'exactly where they want' us!



It actually cheers me up to see Nemo & Squirt pop outta my wallet!

While we are on the subject, does anyone know at what point the rewards points update? I have posted several payments this month but no points update...since I am considering using them a deposit here SOON, I am wondering if there is a standard date that they update...

It is my understanding that you can not get the $50.00 credit for using Disney Visa if you book on board. You can't combine those two discounts.
