By Rebecca Joy

As if you needed another reason for signing up for a Chase Disney Visa debit or credit card, Walt Disney World has just announced that Chase will return again to sponsor this fall’s Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.

That gives Chase card holders some great perks at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival!

  • Signature dining experiences – With world-renowned chefs (separately priced events).
  • Advanced booking of Festival Events – For a limited time, cardholders receive early access on July 19 and 20 to book reservations for special events at the Festival before opening to the general public on July 21. Call 407-939-1870 to take advantage of this special event deal and reserve a spot with your Disney Visa Credit Card.
  • Seminars – You’ll learn about exciting new techniques with culinary demonstrations and beverage seminars (separately priced events).
  • Access to the Chase Lounge in Epcot. See details below.

More about the Chase Lounge at Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival

Continuing from previous years, the 2016 Festival offers exclusive access for Chase cardholders to the Chase Lounge, a place to relax and recharge from the crowds and bustle of fall’s popular Epcot event. Located on the third floor of the American Pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase, the Lounge provides complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, electronic charging stations, and much-welcomed cool air to escape the heat.

The Chase Lounge is open daily from 11:00 am to Park close during the festival. You’ll need to show your Disney Visa Card or any Chase credit or debit card to use the lounge.

“Last year I really enjoyed my stop in the Chase Lounge. They had one of those self-serve soda machines where you choose from a large number of soda flavors on a screen. All of the soda comes out of the same spigot. Unfortunately my wife was unable to use it because she’s on a strict gluten free diet and was concerned about cross contamination, but I really enjoyed it. My wife was able to get water, which was convenient. There were also alcoholic beverages being sold. There were several comfortable seating areas, some video games and places to recharge your devices. It was a pleasant stop.” – Stephen Ashley

About Author

I'm Stephen Ashley. My wife and I are huge fans of Disney World. I'm the author of Walt Disney World With Disabilities. I also wrote a book called Walt Disney World Made Easy for Everyone, but rather than have it published, at this point we've decided to place all the material from the manuscript on this website so everyone can have access to it! I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it makes your day just a little bit brighter and easier.
