Arrival+ "Travel" redemption catagory

I know with the Arrival cards you get the best redemption payout when you use it towards a "travel" purchase. So my family is planning a vacation to disney. My family is paying the hotel and travel. We just have to purchase out own disney tickets. I see on expedia you can purchase tickets through them. Would this fall under the "travel catagory. Also undercovertoursit.com or ticketsatwork.com?

Re: Arrival+ "Travel" redemption catagory

Last time I went to Universal Orlando last July, the ticet charge did not count as travel. I called barclays CSR and was able to get them redeem 15000 points to cover $150 of the ticket prices.
