Episode Description

Credit card rewards, frequent flyer miles, and hotel points are a great way to save money on your Disney vacation. In a quick two part series, we give an overview of what travel hacking is and how you can strategically save money on your Disney vacation. As long as you're paying off your credit card balances in full each month it's a great way to save money.

In Part I, we chat about loyalty programs, taking advantage of credit card welcome bonuses, and a limited time Southwest Companion Pass offer.
