not sure what you have in the u.s. however i'm from Canada and we have a program called 'airmiles' where you earn air miles by banking, using your credit card, shopping at certain stores. we these air miles you can either get free flights or they offer things you can get for free as well. in the gift card section we can get Disney passes. I did this on a trip I took by myself to Disney world last august. saved a big chunk of money. is there any program like that where you are?
