Chase Visa Lounge

Can any Visa cardholder go to the Chase Visa card lounge? I have a Chase Disney Visa but my son doesn't.

I do not know the official policy, but last week I (w/o credit card) went in with a guest who has the Chase card.

Anyone that has a Chase card can enter the lounge. It doesn't have to be a disney card. And each cardholder can bring up to 9 (!!) guests with them.

Yep - any Chase card, and the cardholder may be accompanied by up to 9 guests.

The lounge is pretty small. There may be a wait to get in.

Thanks!

Festival Center is in the Building Formerly Known as the Wonders of Life.

The lounge is not upstairs. It is on the first floor.

When I went, free beverages (soda and water - but not bottled water; they have coffee and tea, but the coffee/hot water machine was broken), Werthers candies, comfy seating (not much of it), an information desk and the lounge has its own WiFi. But the park has WiFi now, too. Plus restrooms (small ones). Capacity of the room is small, if it is full you will have to wait until others leave.

Where is the Festival Center? I missed this lounge on my past trip, but sounds like something to check out next time!

We went into the lounge a couple of times last week, and there were cartoons on the TV every time we went in. It was very full both times - no place to sit down. We just basically went in for a cold drink and left.

They also give out wristbands for preferred seating to Eat to the Beat and Illuminations. They are limited so get there early if you want them. I can't comment on where the seats are though because our show was cancelled due to weather. It was our last night. We really enjoyed the lounge. They also had iPads to play with. The lounge is in the back of the Chocolate Experience, which is worth seeing in and of itself.

I believe there was also a television, can't tell you what was on it. I had my own Ipad with me, the connection is pretty good there. Was departing Orlando that day so I didn't try for any preferred seating for anything. I'm thinking of trying on Friday for Smash Mouth but I may not get there on time to get the wristband.

They rope off the 1st three rows (not under the canopy) on the far left as you face the stage

If you want the best seats, get there at least by then and you will be able to move towards the center where the front row ends a bit shorter so you'll have no one in front of you. If you don't mind having one row in front of you then you could probably show up whenever but right around 15 minutes before the show they started to let everyone sit in that row even if they didn't have a wristband... just to fill up seats.
oh wow, i didn't realize. thanks for the clarification!
