    I have a Chase Disney card and you got my attention when mentioning you can get priority seating at the Epcot concerts with this credit card. I looked through all the DisneyWorld perks for this Visa CC but don’t find that information. Is this only available via phone for these special events? Also I could not find where the Disney Chase Visa card provides discounts on room packages as mentioned in the podcast. Again, is this only available via the Disney phone reservations? Thanks much.

      This information is incorrect. Not to sound snotty, but the Disney Visa discount on rooms/packages is the same discount as released to the general public BUT one of two things happen – one, it includes more dates (see this years free dining offer) or it drops a few days before the general public offer (last year). As far as priority seating for concerts, no it doesn’t work that way but you can do one of the dining packages to get that.

        Thanks for clarifying that. Honestly this podcast was so long ago I don’t even remember the comment (over a year ago!), so I’m gonna go ahead and say whatever Debbie said is right!
