A Disney vacation may start the moment you leave the house, but the real thrill begins the moment you check in for a stay in the middle of the magic!
Whether you’re visiting Walt Disney World® Resort or the Disneyland® Resort, an amazing array of benefits await Disney® Visa® Cardmembers staying on property. Here are six ways to take your vacation to the next level and launch into the fun before you even unpack.
1. Stay Close to the Parks
For those staying at a Disneyland® Resort hotel, a walk in the Parks is just a short stroll away! Guests of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel® & Spa can even enjoy access to Disney’s California Adventure® Park through an entrance inside the hotel (valid theme park admission and hotel key card required).
Getting around the more expansive Walt Disney World® Resort is just as easy with complimentary transportation options. Depending on where you stay, you could walk to your Park of choice or reach it via a short motor coach ride, monorail, or water taxi. Plus, Disney Resort hotel Guests can enjoy a complimentary ride from the airport on Disney’s Magical Express. The only ride more magical would be a flying carpet.
2. Upgrade Using Disney Rewards Dollars
Cardmembers, don’t forget to pack your Disney Rewards Redemption Card to enhance your stay with more play!1 You can redeem toward upgrading your room, ordering room service and more at Disney Resort hotels and Disneyland® Resort Hotels.
If you’ve got the perfect gift idea for Disney fans at home, don’t wait until you get to the Parks: when you purchase with your Disney Visa Card, hotel gift shops honor your 10% discount off purchases of $50 or more.4 That way you can keep your bags of swag in your room and venture into the Parks hands-free! (You know, for easy access to churros.)
