The cards, the rewards
Chase recently announced that they have inked a multi-year deal to continue as the presenting sponsor of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Chase began sponsoring the event with the launch of the Disney Rewards Visa card more than a decade ago.
It is also the only issuer of Disney co-branded credit cards. Besides the Disney Rewards Visa Card, the lineup includes the Disney Premier Visa card and Disney Visa Debit card. Each of these cards carry the image of a Disney character, and come along with special perks and benefits that can be used at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and the Disneyland Resort in California.
People can book a Character Meet ‘n’ Greet at a private and take advantage of special savings at the theme parks, Disney retail stores and DisneyStore.com.
People earn Disney Dream Reward Dollars on everyday purchases. Those with a Disney Premier Visa earn 2% back on gas, groceries and Disney purchases, and 1% on everything else. Those with the Disney Rewards Visa earn 1% on all purchases. Disney Dream Reward Dollars can then be cashed at Disney resorts, theme parks and stores.
