When we first began our points and miles journey, I quickly realized that I needed to find a points and miles app to keep my credit cards organized. I’ve always said that this is a hobby for people with great organizational skills. But even the most organized person can become overwhelmed with all of the data to keep straight.
For instance, if I want to avoid an annual fee during the second year of having a card, I need to know when my credit card anniversary is approaching. If I want to apply for a new card I need to know how long it has been since I applied for my last card. And if I want to apply for a Chase card I need to know where I stand with my 5/24 status.
Over on my instagram account, one of the most common requests I get is for more information on how to pay for a trip to Disney World with points and miles. There are plenty of ways to pay for hotels in the Orlando area with points, but there’s something pretty special about staying at a Disney hotel, not to mention the added perks (more on that in a bit). So today I’m going to get even more specific and teach you how to book Disney hotels with points and miles.
During our recent visit to Universal Studios, we were looking for a nearby hotel where we could utilize our Hyatt points, spend some time at a pretty pool, and be a short distance away from the parks. The pictures online of the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Drive looked beautiful and when I saw that there was a waterslide I knew my kids would be all about that!
Are you in the midst of planning a trip to Disney World and starting to feel some sticker shock?? I am here to tell you that it’s not just you… you are not cheap and you are not alone. Disney World is just expensive, especially if you don’t know where to find the savings. But, that’s where I come in!
Visiting Galaxy’s Edge in Disney World for the first time with 3 Stars Wars loving boys was awesome. Any Disney lover knows that they go all out when it comes to theming, and Galaxy’s Edge is a prime example of that. We would all agree that one of the best parts of the day was watching them participate in the hands on experiences. My two older boys got to build lightsabers but we thought it would be better for our 6 year old to build a droid (more on that later).
Want to hear something pretty cool? In the last 2 years our family has not paid for one single plane ticket. Now that’s easy if you haven’t traveled anywhere, but nope! That’s not at all the case. In just the last 2 years we have flown to Costa Rica twice, the Dominican Republic, Cancun, Chicago and Florida 4 times. And for each of those flights our only cost was the taxes for each ticket. Want to know how we do it?
