At the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, opening today at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, anyone with a Chase credit or debit card account can make their way to the third floor of the American Adventure Pavilion for free beverages, electronics charging, and a place to relax.
The Chase Cardholder Lounge will operate for the duration of the festival, which runs through November 11 at Epcot and features foods from around the world, chef demonstrations, nightly concerts, and more. Chase has been a sponsor of the festival, now in its 18th year, for more than a decade.
Chase is the only issuer of co-branded Disney credit cards that offer rewards to park-goers. These include the Disney Rewards Visa Card, the Disney Visa Debit Card, and the Disney Premier Visa Card. Cardholders earn Disney Dream Reward Dollars for using the card to purchase gas and groceries, as well as at restaurants and Disney locations.
The Disney Premier Visa Card from Chase has a $49 annual fee and offers discounts on airline travel as one option for reward redemption. Chase hosts a sign-up kiosk at Epcot for anyone wanting to apply for one of their Disney cards.
Lounge is open to all Chase customers
To gain entry to the Chase Cardholder Lounge, it’s not necessary to have a co-branded Disney credit card. Any Chase debit or credit card will allow festival attendees to duck into the lounge for a chance to sit down, have a drink and charge up their phones or other mobile devices between food tastings and concerts.
Epcot is one of four theme parks that make up Walt Disney World Resort, which comprises about 40 square miles outside of Orlando, Florida and has been in operation since 1971. The resort also encompasses two water parks, 35 resort hotels, five golf courses, and numerous shopping and dining complexes. Visitors to the International Food & Wine Festival must buy tickets to the Epcot Theme Park in order to be admitted to the event. The Chase Cardholder Lounge is open from 11am until the park closes each day.
