Hi, DonnettaR!

We did the Disney Visa Meet & Greet on Saturday, June 25th.
It's at Ariel's Grotto in California Adventure.
That's the restaurant on Paradise Pier overlooking the water.
It's held from park opening for the first 1 1/2 hrs. (from 10-11:30 when we were there).
We walked up, showed our Visa card, and were led downstairs.
We were the only guests there - Don't know if it was because it was new and not many people knew about it?
Captain Mickey and Surfer Goofy were there and we all took a couple of group photos.
The CM gave me the vouchers for the photos and a free ticket for a 5x7 (or 6x8?).
We forgot to redeem them that night and went back on Sunday (they store the photos in their computers for 1 day after they are taken).
Went to the photo place right by the entrance, previewed our pictures, chose the one I wanted, then gave them my ticket for payment (free!).
Very easy and saved us from having to wait in lines for character greetings.

Yea, same thing here...no one was there but us which was nice for some individual character interaction.

Remember to show them ALL your Disney visas (ie, if you have a joint account w/your spouse, show both cards) b/c that way you get TWO pics! We had 3 card w/us and did it every day we were in the park so ended up w/several nice pictures of our group!

How long does this offer apply? Is it just a summer thing or will it be happening throughout the 50th celebration?

When we had gone to DCA and asked about it last month, the four different CMs didn't know anything about it-even information, so we didn't get to do that offer .
