There is a kiosk at DTD where they can reissue a card! Our card came too late in the mail...we actually got it at the desk when checking in for cruise...nice to know!

Just log on to your Chase account and you can order a card. You can put the minimum amount of $20 on it and then add more instantly by web or phone. It only takes seconds to add rewards. I would be hesitant to put all of the rewards on at once because it is so many, but if you are going to pay the trip off with it prior to arrival, then go ahead and add them. Easy peasy.

Just recently opened a card myself. Has anyone used the character photo op at Epcot? What was your experience?

Multiple times! It is fantastic! You typically see two (occasionally 3) characters from the fab 5, and it is a secret as to who they will be. Only your party is allowed into the room and the characters are very playful and they take tons of candid photos in addition to the posed shots. You can get one free photo each day, so you could go to Epcot 7 days in a row and get 7 free photos. They recently extended the hours, so the wait times should be next to nothing, especially later in the day.

We got our pictures taken with Mickey Mouse and Pluto. I was like a little kid. Mickey has been my favorite character for as long as I can remember. I am 39 and acted like a kid with tears in my eyes meeting Mickey Mouse for the first time lol

We just like that the rewards can only be used for Disney so it's like saving for vacation without thinking about it. Whenever we go to WDW or on a Disney cruise we use our reward dollars as our spending money. :-)

Oh, there's also the added bonus of getting the "what a cute card" comment every time you buy something. ;-)

You only pay a fee if you get the Premier Visa. The regular Visa has no fee. There is also a regular debit card that offers the same perks, but it does not earn any reward dollars. I have the premier and the debit, so we can actually get two photos per day at EPCOT since we have two different accounts. Last year we did a family shot and a kids only shot, and we did them both two days in a row.

I'm staying at CR in August, I already received the discount for the room thought the promotion. Would I receive a bigger discount paying with my Disney Visa or is it the same discount as the currant promo?
