i called the 800 # on the back of my disney visa card to ask about special room rates at disney world hotels & the customer rep. really didn't seem to know what i was talking about. w/ some more explanation on my part, she gave me some specials that they're having w/ vero beach, etc so i knew we were on the right track but then she ended up giving me a disney (407) # to call re: my question. i asked her the general question - how will i know about special promotions that you offer regarding hotel room rates? she said mailings. there's talk on this forum about public codes coming out this tues. or next. wouldn't disney visa offer their code first as they did last year? for those of you who have used disney visa codes, did you receive them via the mail last year? i'm waiting by my mailbox as i'm hoping to go in early may & it appears the disney visa rate is less than the WDW room-only rate.

I heard about the Disney code on tv first. The bad news is that the Disney code had already been released by this time last year. :guilty:

All of us with the Disney Visa are not really happy campers this year.

I think those DV rates released last year were in reaction to the special deal they offered only to new card members and old card members were upset so they released something to keep people happy. Maybe we should all call asking where our deals are?

I've had this same experience attempting to call Disney Visa directly to ask about hotel discounts. The rep acted like she didn't know what I was talking about and that I had to call the hotel. The hotel said I had to call back Disney Visa. The only place I've found Visa discounts listed is on mousesavers (and through the Visa newsletter but it never had anything that applies to our vacation plans). I wish I could call Disney Visa directly about it but they don't seem to think they are the ones that would have that info! :earsboy:

I look on the Disney Visa website regularly to find the deals. You can find it here. (http://online.firstusa.com/bolHome.aspx?partner=disney) You have to register for it. Just look for the drop down menu that includes "View current offers" and it will give you a listing of all the offers available at WDW, DL, DCL, Disney entertainment, and other offers.

How about everyone with a Disney Visa email them and ask about vacation discounts?

Okay, I just did. Come on, everyone.

Karen (aka TLinden16),

I have seen your comments and photos about Jellyrolls, and I have become very curious about it. I am going to have to get over there and see for myself! Also, you look just like my boss!

Yeah, I'm up for that!!! What is there e-mail address? If someone were to post it, it may speed other people along so that they will do the same thing!! It is way overdue for the Disney Visa to offer us a vacation discount to WDW. I mean, it is the "Disney" card isn't it!!! :rolleyes:

But you are e-mailing the wrong people!

Bank One doesn't create the discounts! That's all done through WDW marketing! Bank One is simply the cobranding conduit, they make their money on the interest and merchant fees, Disney gets a cut and provides "offers".

I thought of that also but figure "maybe" if they get enough mail that they could get the ball rolling. One hand washes the other sort of thing. If marketing offers some discounts then bank one or first usa, whoever it is now will get their interest in return.
We can always hope for some pixie dust here. *******************

It seemed to do the trick last year, but I don't know if people only wrote Bank One or both WDW and Bank One.

Chase bought out the Disney Visa right? Seems like I got a letter about that this week...perhaps it doesn't change over until March? I thought maybe Chase would offer some codes to us poor long suffering DV card holders (perhaps waiting until the change over?) to get us to keep their silly card. :earboy2: There's been zero offers for WDW for a very looooooooong time now..........

duclite is correct I emailed DV about 2 weeks ago they responded on 2/24 saying that Disney is responsible for all promotions and if I had any further question to contact them at Disney customer service or on-line at dissneystore.com. Go figure.

Chase Bank is buying Bank One, so maybe that is why nobody knows what is going on? maybe Chase wont offer the discounts?

Last spring Disney said it was Bank One that decided and Bank One said it was Disney that decided who decided on the offers.

If less people are using the card then the Disney cut is diminished. Someone, somewhere must be asking "Why?" so how about we tell them why we aren't using the card.

Do people only use the card when there's a promotion? I think most who carry it use it for anything they'd put on a card.

I put $109,586 and change through it last year. And never once looked at any of the promo's. I get my points, that's all I care about.

Edited to say it was $109,581 and change, sorry.

To be fair, the Disney Visa is offering discounts at Disneyland, in addition to some other discounts. You can see current offers at the Disney Visa website.

While I would love to get a discount at WDW, I am using mine primarily for earning points for spending $ at WDW.

Again, they're only going to offer room/package discounts if they need to fill rooms.

So contact both. If mass mailings helped last time why not now. We want what we need right. We need discounts for DW. After all it is the largest of the theme parks.

That is the same response letter I got. Just the same old standard letter. I also wrote to Disney, have not heard back from them yet. I expect the same response from them as well. I just think if they get enough inquirys they just may do something about it. It may not work but it can't hurt and doesn't take much time.
Let's keep it going!!!!!

I just hate going to that Disney Visa web site and seeing "0 offers" for WDW. You'd think they'd be ashamed and at least offer something like 25 Disney Dollars if you pay for a package with the card, just so they could say there were special offers.

mickeyluv
03-08-2005, 12:38 PM
I got the same letter as jjohnson did. I have not contact Disney yet. Does anyone know the e-mail or address to send a complaint on matters such as this?? Let me know and I will most definitely be contact them also!!!

OK I just e-mailed too for me and my husband, I hope it works too since I need some incentive to keep this card besides a few disney dollars! :rolleyes1

I agree. Neither company wants to take "ownership" for the card and the deals. It seems very strange to me.

After many calls the only discount was an upgrade for tickets after April 23rd
but if you booked through Disney same price the only advantage with card was 0 percent for 6 months if anyone knows of any other discounts please let me know.

This has nothing to do with what you guys are talking about but:

When I applied for the Disney Visa..It said that Chase was unable to reach a decision at this time, and they gave me a Bank Reference Number.

Are the odds pretty good that I've been approved???

This is the same offer as the one for the general public. It was offered to Disney cardholders 2 days before it went public. It doesn't seem as if there will be anything more.
