Chase Lounge??

I just received an email from Chase about the Chase Lounge during F&W. Can anyone tell me more about this? Whatever it is, I'm very excited to be able to do it!!

I'm curious about this as well and was wondering if anyone else was talking about it. It says to come, relax and enjoy a beverage. Just curious about the other "special benefits." To be candid, I've been disappointed in the lack of perks (beyond accruing points) associated with the card, but am pleasantly surprised by this!

I just got the same email. It looks like it is on the 2nd level of the festival center (which I believe was the Wonders of Life pavillion, but I don't remember there being a 2nd level lounge...) Anyone??

I got the email too! It sounds fantastic! My guess is it is just someone to sit and relax out of the sun...I'll be curious to see if we can take food in there and stuff.

I am curious too...googled it. There are a few articles and pictures of the space. (Sorry - I'm not savvy enough to link or post.) Sounds like they use it for events with some regularity.

Frankly, they could show me a broom closet as the spcial access lounge and I'd be thrilled. I love seeing new (as in new to me) Disney World things.

Just got the e-mail, too. Bummed I won't be taking a trip during those dates.

I wonder if there'll be a chaise lounge in the Chase Lounge?

We got the email too and we're there during those dates. It would have been nice if they would have given some directions though. I didn't know there was a festival center!

Have fun! We were given VIP passes to the lounge at SE (Siemens) and M:S (HP). Both gave us front of the line access to the rides.

The SE lounge was fun, they had a big screen where you could do some things, they had another that had a bunch of apps. One changed the color of the floor tiles. Another, it would make it look like the kids were wearing wigs and such. they had chargers for your phone. There were free fountain drinks and a beautiful restroom.

The M:S lounge had a booth for sending a virtual postcard, the same exact thing they have when you get off the ride. they made a computer available to us. DH went on to print boarding passes but the printer was out of ink. They also allowed you to print 4 photos from your digital camera, but once again out of ink. They had a digitized game, I can't explain it, it's like a computer screen and based on how you move the board, the "ball" moves. It's like the computerized floor games they have in Innoventions. They also have free fountain beverages. the girl served them in real glasses and definitely did not want us behind the counter.

So, YMMV. have fun and enjoy it as the special perk it is meant to be.

Got the e-mail also. I don't remember Chase having a lounge there last F&W. We will be checking it out on Oct. 3

Based on past Passholder lounges, I am not expecting much. And by beverage I would expect water and maybe soda. Hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

And you can take 9 guests in with your also. We too got the email yesterday.

my email just says to show your disney visa card to gain entrance, so i doubt that you need the email.

since you don't need the email to gain entry, i wouldn't worry about it. just show up at the festival center with your disney visa.

i am surprised you got the offer without having a disney visa. i have several chase credit cards (freedom, southwest, and both disney cards), and my email specifically said i have to show my disney visa. i didn't get an email regarding this for my other chase credit cards.
