I received the email as well. I'll check it out in a couple weeks when we are there. It is too far from the festival kiosks to carry food to eat there, but it will be interesting to see what the set up is.

The e-mail specifically mentions complimentary beverages.

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.

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.

I'm a Disney Visa holder but I didn't get any email... maybe because I only have a Disney Debit :/

edit: nope, never mind, all debit and credit holders get to access the lounge.

Yeah, at the AP Lounge in The Land, they offered soft drinks and water. Which is good or me! But maybe since it's F&W, they'll provide some cheap alcohol. Not expecting a lot, but definitely going to check it out!

*sigh* ~I received the email and I wish I was going! But, I can't wait to hear all the details, that's a really nice unexpected touch by Chase. I think it's going to be fantastic!

Might get overcrowded!!

Chase is a sponsor for F&W this year. I don't believe they were in prior years.
