Are there any special offers or discounts you get if you use your Disney Visa Card?
1) 6 months free interest on certain vacations when the card is used.

2) Discounts on purchases over $50 at Disney Stores and most locations at Disney World.

3) Points on purchases that can be used for purchasing and at the parks.

4) Special meet and Greet at EPCOT and free picture.

5) Early notice and access to discounts prior to them being released to the public.

6) $50 on board credit with DCL.

7) Special DVC financing should you find yourself interested in such a thing.

8) 10% off select dining and 20% off select tours.

I think that is basically it. They have a premiere card that has an annual fee, but it increases the points back on certain purchases. Of course all of this information and more is available at the Disney Visa website.

Is it possible to sign up for a Disney Visa and have my current reservation transferred to get the trip discount ? AKL 7/29-8/3. Is it an option?

I assume the sale is going general public soon (haven't been following it) but if so, you can probably get the gp sale faster than you can get the credit card and use it.

Good point DisneyMom5. I will hold out for the gp discount but still will consider the card. We are frequent Disney visitors. The card may be of good use to us.

You have to have the card in hand to book the offer, but the current DV offer goes public on April 2, so you can just call that morning to see if it can be applied to your reservation.

It can be applied. Just call them let them know you have been approved but still waiting on your card. They should be able to apply it then no issues.

Just did it myself on Thursday to save 30% on Boardwalk CL

They applied your discount even without the credit card number? I was approved yesterday and called the company and they said I had to wait to get the card in the mail that I couldn't get my cc number over the phone! I hope by the time I get my card or the go sale opens I can get a god discount!!!

If I remember correctly we were told to set up you online account and you free to book with the offers. Applied to the card without the card. That was about a yet ago.

How did you put down the required $200 payment with the Disney Visa if you didn't have the card number?

FYI- I booked using my regular visa. When my disney visa came in, I was able to switch cards. They refunded my original card and charged my disney one.

Can someone explain the "Disney Debit" card? All I see are the "Premier" and "Rewards" . Is the debit card different?

We opened a Disney Visa card a few months ago. I wanted to book my trip on the card but didn't have the card after a few days of getting approved online. Spoke with somebody from Chase who said that, while they could not give any numbers/credit card information over the phone, they would overnight our cards to us. We had them the next day and booked!! (We did get the "original" cards a few days later).

The debit card does not earn Disney Rewards dollars. It does get you some of the other perks, though. You can find info here...
