How Did I Do It?

Chase Disney* card: Earn $200 Disney gift card after spending $500 in 3 months. No annual fee if you use my referral link.

Why, as an adult, do I still love Disney(land) so much?

In fact, I really wanted a Disney-themed wedding; however the hubby wasn’t a fan of the concept. We agreed on an East Meets West theme to reflect our upbringings but only if I could choose our first dance song. I made him dance to “Beauty and the Beast.” 🙂

Back to the original question, I grew up in poverty. Cinderella was one of the first movies that I watched after moving to the US. For some reasons, as a 12 year old, I felt connected to the character and wished that someday, a prince would sweep me off my feet and wipe all of my economic problems away. Obviously, reality isn’t a fairy tale but the love for Disney allowed me to dream. I enjoyed all of Disney movies growing up, from The Lion King to Pocahontas.

I fell in love with the park from the very first visit during college. It is where my inner child can be released without any glances of judgement. Since that first time, I have gone back probably almost a dozen times. It has become a place associated with the best memories.

This year, for my birthday, I really wanted to go to Argentina. However, one of Tran’s friends had a wedding in Anaheim. Plans changed and Disneyland would be the next best thing.

For those of you who have been there or are planning to go, y’all know that tickets are ridiculously expensive. The fluidity of the ticket prices depending on seasons makes it an expensive vacation destination for a couple, much less a family.

When our trip to the park was finalized, I did some research to offset the Disneyland ticket prices.

I’ve previously written that Chase has a 5/24 rule in this post, which means that they will not approve further applications if you have more than 5 credit cards within 24 months. However, there are a few notable exceptions.

    • Chase Hyatt*:  We redeemed 4 free nights at the Park Hyatt-Paris using this card. The sign-on bonus was devaluated a couple of months ago. You now get 40,000 points after spending 2k.
    • Chase IHG:  We used our sign up bonus at the Intercontinental Danang (part 1, part 2), which is our favorite hotel so far.
    • Chase Ritz Carlton:  We don’t have this card yet.
    • Chase Disney*: There are two Disney credit cards:

1. Chase Disney Premier:
– Receive $200 credit after spending $500 within the first three months
– 2% in Disney Dream Reward Dollars on card purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants and most Disney locations
– Annual fee of $49
– 1% in Disney Dream Reward Dollars on all other purchases
– Disney perks:
+ Character Meet ‘N’ Greet at a private location
+ 10% off select merchandise purchases of $50 or more at Disney Store and DisneyStore.com

2. Chase Disney Rewards:
– Get $50 credit after first purchase.
– No annual fee
– 1% in Disney Dream Reward Dollars on all purchases
– Disney perks:
+ Character Meet ‘N’ Greet at a private location
+ 10% off select merchandise purchases of $50 or more at Disney Store and DisneyStore.com

Both of the cards offer the Character Meet ‘N’ Greet. Unfortunately, the Meet ‘N’ Greet is only available at Disney California Adventures and Disney World so we couldn’t use it at Disneyland. The credit card must be presented to gain entry for up to 6 people. It also includes one complimentary 5″x7″ photo per day.

After some research, I realized that I could get a $200 credit on the no annual fee card by using someone else’s referral link. Otherwise, you can get the same bonus by applying through the official Chase website but have pay the $49 annual fee. Needless to say, the former choice is better, isn’t it? Without an annual fee, you can keep it to continue accruing points for future trips.

Once my credit card was received and activated, I quickly met my spending requirement in one trip to Walgreens. It takes about six weeks after meeting the requirement before Disney sent me a gift card. Therefore, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to apply for it. That way, your dream Disneyland vacation doesn’t get delayed.

Cheap Disneyland Tickets – Disney gift card

Each ticket cost $110 so after redeeming my gift card, we only had to pay $20. We saved $200! Tran also applied for this card using my referral link. That way, we can get cheap Disney World tickets for next year. I’m beyond excited!

Here is my Chase Disney* referral link if you’re interested. To reiterate, you’d get $200 after spending $500 in 3 months without paying any annual fee. If you and your partner apply then you’d have $500 to spend at Disneyland/DisneyWorld as you please.
