Being a Disney Visa Cardmember has its perks!
Are you on the hunt for a good Disney discount? Do you have a Disney Visa or have you thought about applying for one? If so, we’ve got some news for you!
Today, information for a hefty Disney Visa discount was released!
We LOVE a good discount… and who doesn’t?
So we wanted to share that two Disney Springs dining locations have announced limited-time discounts for Disney Visa cardholders.
One of the most common questions we hear from our readers is, “When do you think future discounts will be released?” I wish we had a crystal ball for the answer!
It would be wonderful if we could predict when popular discounts like Free Dining or even room-only discounts were announced, wouldn’t it? Well, don’t despair; there really is a crystal ball of sorts to help you guess which travel dates are most likely to be included in future discounts. [Read more…]

It’s that time of year again – when we’re all eagerly awaiting the announcement of the 2018 Free Disney Dining Plan! The Free Dining offer is super popular – for good reason – and we’ve been talking about WHEN the Free Dining dates might be announced for a while now!
The Disney World Free Dining offer includes a free Disney Dining Plan with the purchase of a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and ticket package. The “free” part of the name pulls you in, but just remember that you’ll be paying full price for your resort hotel room and a minimum number of ticket days when you book free dining.
We are expecting the Free Dining dates to be announced VERY soon, and today we have five tips for how to score the Free Dining offer! [Read more…]
This just in!
We have potential updates to early booking for events during the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival for two populations of Disney fans!
As you know, booking for all Epcot Food and Wine Festival Events for the General Public opens on July 21st at 7AM ET. But most years, if you’re a Disney World Annual Passholder, Disney Vacation Club Member, Tables in Wonderland, or Golden Oak Resident, you’ll get to book Festival Center events (seminars and demos primarily) a few days early. This year, that early date falls on July 19th at 9AM!
And today, we’ve gotten some good news for yet another group of Disney lovers…
Chase Disney Visa Cardholders Early Booking Date for Epcot Food and Wine Festival
Yay! We’ve now heard that Chase Disney Visa Cardmembers will again be able to book events early this year as well! The phone lines are slated to open for this group on July 19 at 7AM! So if you have a Disney Visa, start planning, because next Tuesday is YOUR DAY! Call 407-939-1870 to book reservations with your Disney Visa Credit Card.
While Disney hasn’t fully clarified what will be eligible for booking on the early day, the events are most likely the Low-Cost Culinary Demonstrations and Beverage Seminars that take place at Festival Center. There may be some Special Events as well.
Remember, this info is always subject to change. There are so many moving parts with the Festival, so things DO change from time to time. But since this information falls in line with what has happened in previous years, we’re pretty confident in reporting that it will be the case.
But that’s not all the interesting early booking news we have today!
Disney World Annual Passholders Early…EARLY Booking Date?
So…Disney World Annual Passholders may be able to book some events for the festival on July 18th.
We were pretty confident that July 19th was the early booking date for ALL specialty groups this year. THEN we started getting emails and notifications from our readers about an earlier booking date for Annual Passholders. So we investigated, and here’s what we found:
According to PassholderCalendar.com (an official Annual Passholder website that I found through the Mickey Monitor, which is the official Annual Passholder publication), early booking for Annual Passholders who are booking seminars will be open on July 18. [Read more…]
