    It's nice that you can get this as a DVC member but most of us are also AP holders as we get the AP cheaper and then you can get the TiW card for being an AP holder.

    For cheaper than the DVC rate too.

    I think this is fabulous. It isn't worth it for us to buy an annual pass (since we live in CA and only go to DW every few years) But as a DVC member I am thrilled this is a perk. One that I will actual use as soon as I get to DW in 28 days!

    I like the addition of this perk. Usually when we know we can do 2 trips within the 12 months we'll pick up the discounts APs, and then we get the TiW card as it does work out good savings for us. But this is a good option when we can get a good deal on 2 or 3 week park tickets in the UK and are not sure about future vacation plans - it means we can still pick up the TiW card without having APs :)

    Do AP holders get TiW for $75 instead of the $100 a DVC member pays?

    We are both DVC members and have annual pass. I buy my Tables in Wonderland thru AP. It is only $75. Well worth the $75 or even the $100 thru DVC. When 6 of us dined in one day alone our meals came to over $400 between BOMA and CRYSTAL PALACE. ON $400 we saved $80 in one day!!!!:cool1:

    Hi Lisa, We were thinking of adding the TIW card when we go in Sept. and I would be interested in whether you think it was worth it for you and whether it was a lot of aggro having to show all the ID every time you paid for dinner. If you remember would you mind posting your experiences of using the card when you get back home. Much appreciated and have a great time. Welcome to DVC by the way!! party:

    We have had TIW for a few years - its so easy. We usually charge everything to our KTTW so they don't ask for extra ID most times.

    You will need photo ID and your DVC card if you are buying as a DVC member otherwise AP and ID.

    We love it!

    For a 20% discount I can live with having to show my ID occasionally. Actually we've found that we almost never have to show ID, especially if we're doing a room charge.

    I agree; super easy and we were never asked to show our id; perhaps because we used our KTTW card.

    The Tables in Wonderland card has paid for it self many times over for us. The number of times we have used the valet parking comp alone paid for the card multiple times. Plus during busy seasons they won't let you self park at Boarkwalk, Beach Club, and Yacht Club, often times telling you to park at DTD and take a bus to the resort, but with the TiW card you valet park and bring a receipt for food or drink for that hotel and they comp the parking fee. It's worth it to tip the valet and get the convenience (like on hot days, rainy days) and VIP treatment. They usually don't ask to see your ID. The only inconvenience (if any) is that they need a manager to verify the discount and print out the adjusted receipt. Usually not a problem unless you are at one of the small lounges or bars and they have to call someone to come down there, even then, it's not a big deal. AND there is no discount on the most major holidays, like 5 or 6 days blocked out.

    We've used the TiW card for a few years now - never been asked once for ID though ofc we are usually room charging it too so has my name on that. Perhaps a higher chance of getting ID'd if you asked to pay in cash though.

    I checked the DVC website to see if I could buy the TIW card in advance, but I couldn't find anything. So the only way to get it is to stop at Guest Services at the parks or DTD? We're staying at BWV so I'm hoping we can pick-up at the International Gateway Entrance. Can anyone confirm? Thanks.
