    Can you use your Disney Visa rewards toward the cost of a future cruise? And, can you cash out the rewards?

    Thanks!

    You most certainly can use your Disney Visa to pay the deposit for an OBB - and start earning those points!

    If you already have a Rewards Card (not the credit card but the one they transfer the points to for use) then you can transfer points at any time as long as you have 10 points. This can be done by phone or online, but you have to have the Rewards Card already in-hand.

    Points for any current/recent charges are not available until your statement date. So the points for booking a future cruise onboard are not likely to be available for you to transfer unless your statement date occurs during the cruise.

    Enjoy your cruise!

    Instead of using the points to book a future cruise, I would just use the Disney Visa to book it and pay for it. Then you will get 6 months free financing on the deposit and the balance, and earn points at the same time.

    Put the points on the rewards card when you are ready to sail and put those onto your room account to use to pay for things on the ship.

    Thanks for the replies! I don't have a Disney Visa, but am seriously considering getting one.

    As to your second question, no you cannot cash them out.

    Thanks.
    So when I go to settle my on board account I can just hand over my rewards card?

    More likely, you would apply the value of the Rewards Card to your onboard account ahead. If there is balance remaining at the end of the cruise, it will be put back onto the Rewards Card. If you select "cash" as your onboard account method, then yes you could settle the account with a Rewards Card but you may need to do so periodically during the cruise depending on how much you spend onboard and for excursions as DCL will limited the onboard account after a certain amount for "cash" accounts.
