@Spr175psu Pin Haul post made me get my act together and get photos of my haul and start on my Trip Report. When I usually write Trip Reports, I tend to write a lot. Since I've been so much of a slacker, I am going to try to post a bunch of stuff quickly, and then go back and edit the posts with more words and details, and photos. I have my "haul" photos readily available, but I took over 2300 pictures (not including DH's phone pictures) so sorting through to figure out which ones to share, might take another day or two. We left Denver @ 9:45 AM May 8th, arrived in HK about 6:30 on May 9th. We spent 4 nights at the Island Pacific Hotel on Hong Kong Island (recommended by DH's former co-worker), and then moved over to Disneyland where we stayed another 4 nights at Disney's Explorers Lodge. This trip was to celebrate our 20th Anniversary (traditional gift is china, I figured going to China would be way more fun). We financed the trip through Chase Ultimate Rewards Points. If you are extremely disciplined with your finances, and not already on the using credit cards to earn points, you might want to check it out. At the end of 2016, Chase rolled out a fancy, schmancy new card with a $450 annual fee. Nuts you say, ridiculous you say. I agree! And then we did the math. The initial offer was for 100,000 Chase points which can be transferred to a myriad of hotel and airline programs at 1 pt Chase = 1 pt whatever. Or you could use your points on Chase's travel portal. You got a statement credit of $300 per year for "travel" purchases, and you could get a statement credit for 1 Global Entry application, plus you are enrolled in Priority Pass (airport lounge system). We signed up because we were looking for a "no foreign fee" card before our 2017 trip to London, and this sounded "interesting." So we've been earning our points, and then we decided, "Well, what are they good for?" We both decided that we had to use them on a trip we would never take otherwise. So no visiting our parents, Disneyland or WDW. We had originally joked about going to the Maldives, but it seemed like it would take awhile to earn enough points for that. I figured out the china/China gift thing, so we went to the portal and looked it up. So to pause for just a minute, United offers Hong Kong flights for 40,000 pts each way, per person. So to book through United we would need 160,000 points. Through the Chase Vacation Portal, they were offering the same United flight for a total of 103,000 pts. Sold. Plus, the hotel that was recommended to us was offering a special rate too. In a Harbor View room. So our airfare/half our hotel we only had to pay taxes/fees which were like $50. However, I did buy the Global Premium Economy Upgrade thingy United offers to upgrade your seats for a year for you and 1 companion. That was $900, so it wasn't as dirt cheap as it could have been. But 15 hour flight! We wanted more room. I love Disney hotels. But Disney Deluxe accommodations really bite into the pin budget. Not so in Hong Kong! We booked the best category (Sea View) at the newest hotel for 4 nights, and the US $ conversion made it about $1000. $250/night. Obviously, there are cheaper hotels in the world, but WDW moderates are going for those prices now. I will take my Deluxe Resort, thank you very much. So we have gotten ourselves to Hong Kong, and with a places to stay for $2K. Not doing the airline upgrade, choosing a cheaper Disney hotel, choosing a cheaper room category. You could do a trip for two adults with Credit Card points for less than $1000. And the two 2-day park tickets, plus 2 days worth of meal vouchers for the both us? Tack on only another $240. I post the numbers, because a lot of people think there is no way they can afford a trip to Asia. What did you pay for your last vacation at WDW?
