Disney Movie Rewards Exclusive Poster and Studio Tour

Disney Movie Rewards allows you to earn points when you purchase movies, some music, and when you see movies in theaters.  (They recently changed the rules so only CDs bought on the Disney Music Emporium site are eligible for points.)  Generally you earn 50 points when you see a movie in the theater, 100 for a DVD, and 150 for a Blu-ray.  With these points, you can redeem items.  On occasion, there are exclusive items available.  The first one I ever saw was back in 2009.  It was a Snow White and Seven Dwarfs ornament for 975 points.  Then in 2011 there was a keepsake box for 975 points and in 2012 a Snow White Apron was offered for 1,000 points.  In 2014, there was a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Pin for 900 points.  As far as I know, these have been the only Snow White exclusive items offered...until now.  There is currently an exclusive poster with art by Eric Tan available for 1250 points.

You may have noticed down at the bottom of my screen shot that I have 14,160 points.  Back in 2009 I wondered if I should keep saving points for the studio tour or if I should redeem for Snow White items.  I've decided to do both.  I will redeem points for one of these posters and very soon, I will be able to get the tour.  In 2009, the tour was 20,000 points.  It seems that the points were lowered to 15,000 points at some point, but I don't remember when.  If I had never redeemed any points, I would be at 17,885.

However, I recently noticed the the rewards website started offering 3 different tour levels with new point levels: Silver, Gold, and Platinum.  I did a comparison of the levels to help me decided which one I want to go for.

So now, I have to decide if I want to keep saving up for the Platinum or Gold tour, or if I should use my points on the Silver tour.  If I'm going for Gold I only need 92 trips to the theater, 46 more DVDs, or 31 Blu-Rays.  Platinum will take 242 trips to the theater, 121 DVD, or 81 Blu-Rays.

What are your thoughts?  What would you do?


  1. The soundstage sounds interesting, but that's a lot of points.

    The poster looks awesome.

  2. That's what I am thinking. It's a huge point jump to just add a sound stage.
