Every parent out there has heard these dreaded words… “Mom/Dad, can we go to Disneyland?!” I’m not a parent, but I could imagine the feelings of frustration with prices and long lines with kids. After all costs, the average trip to Disney averages to be just over $200 per person per day!  And with a large family like Dan’s, that expense could add up fast.

My wife and I visited Disney World before the American Express Gold Card had its foodie rebranding. It was an expensive trip even though we were able to get creative with our expenses. Unfortunately, it will be expensive any way you go about it.

This isn’t going to save you a mountain of money unfortunately. However, it will help alleviate the costs with major American Express Membership Reward earnings!

How To Use Your Amex Gold To Earn Membership Rewards at Disney

The American Express Gold Card is my all-time favorite credit card! My wife and I are both foodies and love trying new restaurants here in Salt Lake City. We also enjoy making new recipes we find online at home.

With the American Express Gold Card, you earn 4x per dollar (roughly 8% back in value) at U.S. supermarkets and restaurants. While this is great for those with an extended food pallet, it’s also great for just about anything else!

At most grocery stores, you will find a gift card rack similar to the above. That means you can earn 4x per dollar on all of these gift cards! Auto Zone, Sephora, Amazon, iTunes, Best Buy, and more are available to earn 4x on. But more specifically, there are Disney gift cards.

The bottom gift cards with Mickey on them are good for anything Disney related. The top cards are good specifically for passes into the park.

If you notice the second from the left and the middle cards, they have denominations from $15-$500. You can purchase any of these and earn 4x per dollar in American Express Membership Rewards.

Grocery Store Spending

These pictures above were taken at a Smith’s grocery store in Salt Lake City. It was just announced that any Kroger affiliated grocery store will no longer accept Visa credit cards. With this announcement means re-strategizing for maximum points earning.

If you are on the market for a new grocery card, you should really consider the American Express Gold Card. You can earn 4x on groceries and the entire gift card rack above!

Now that is some great points-earning!
