    Does anyone know if you can use your Disney rewards card instead of entering a credit card for online check-in? We have over $1000 on our rewards card and want to use it for food, etc. as opposed to charging it to our credit card. Any advice? It would be oh-so-convenient for DH and I to use our KTTW cards for everything instead of sharing (and remembering) the rewards card.

    Oh, and what's the best way to purchase park tickets when you do online check-in? Again, we want to use our rewards card to purchase park tickets.

    Sorry for what might seem like stupid questions... it's late and my brain is still so fried from the holidays. We leave in less than a week!!

    You can't use the rewards card as a deposit against your room charges. You can use a CC for the deposit, but pay your balance due with the rewards card anytime prior to check out or prior to reaching a $1500 balance.

    You can also use the rewards card to pay for your tickets at check in.

    Thanks Bill! That makes sense. We just need to make sure to pay the balance the day before check out.

    We always pay the night before and get a copy of our bill with zero balance due. That way they don't charge to the card on file by mistake. We also pay mid way through our trip if we want to empty a rewards card. You can put a positive balance on your account if you want to.

    Last year we didn't plan ahead and we left Disney with ~$250 left on our rewards card. UGH! Rest assured we spent it when we had to pay our annual dues... always somewhere you can spend your rewards!
