Sometimes timing your Disney vacation is about more than crowds and special rate offers. If your finances are anything like mine, there are certain times of the year when it is just a little easier to pay for a vacation. For my family, this is usually in the Spring — after the Christmas charges have been paid and our tax refund has arrived.
Unfortunately, we are not Spring travelers, as Spring Break crowds and costs are usually a little more than we are willing to go for. We love traveling in the Fall but with the cost of beginning another school year, coupled with the holiday season, it really isn’t feasible for us to pay for a vacation during that time.
Thankfully, the Disney Rewards Visa card has a “zero percent interest for up to 6 months” offer on Disney vacations booked through the Walt Disney Travel Company, your travel agent, or online at Disney sites. This allows us to travel for Thanksgiving and not pay for it until the Spring. This is one of the card perks and is our whole reason for having the card; and it has worked out great.
I am far from being an advocate for credit cards but if you use it strictly for the purpose of buying yourself a little time, it can be a lifesaver. Make a budget for your trip and stick to the limits of what you will be able to pay once your 6 months is up. Then pay it all off before the interest gets charged.
Sometimes saving for a vacation ahead of time is too difficult. Taking advantage of this offer gives you a hassle-free, interest-free alternative. You can find out if this idea might be right for you by visiting information at Disney Rewards Visa. And if you apply at DisneyStore.com you can save $50 when you become a Disney Rewards Visa Cardmember .
