Book Disney Tickets With Chase Ultimate Rewards
Update/Edit – Looks like it is only working for park tickets at the moment. I wouldn’t be surprised to see hotels added in the near future but there is no time frame at this point. The park tickets only seem to be showing up for CSR cardholders as well.
A few months back we covered that Disney and Chase had split ways for the time being. This was a little shocking since Chase provides the Disney credit cards. We assumed the issue was because of Chase’s change over to Expedia running their Ultimate Rewards portal. That is why we thought it would most likely return at some point and was only a temporary thing. People were still able to book their Disney vacations and park tickets via Citi’s ThankYou portal at 1.25 cents per point. But you can now book Disney vacations with Chase Ultimate Rewards once again. The same packages available on Citi’s portal are now bookable at 1.5 cents per point with your Chase Sapphire Reserve card.
Here is a screen shot Shawn was able to pull up in his Chase Ultimate Rewards portal. The tickets were pricing out at 1.5 cents a piece and were pretty competitive price wise overall.
Disney is one of the more expensive vacations (see how to do it for pennies on the dollar here) out there so having more points options available is always better. Especially since it is possible to get a 1.5 cents per point with Chase versus 1.25 cents with Citi.
Do you ever use the Chase portal to book Disney vacations? Are you excited to see it return?
