Disney Visa Card Perks? And Park Tickets?

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-06-04 14:53
Just got a Disney Visa and was wondering what the best perks are for WDW. I haven't had a chance to read through the booklet that came with it, but skimmed through. What is your favorite perk? Are there special character meet and greets? Any special discount on ticket prices?

Also wondering about park tickets. We have just been doing the parties the past few years but this October I'm thinking about a multi-day ticket. Really just need 3 days. What is the best way/place to get tickets, and is there ever any kind of discount beyond the authorized ticket places like Undercover Tourist?

Another option might be the 4 park magic ticket. Anybody know if they will be offering that in October?

Fast pass+ dissapointment

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-06-03 14:34
I am staying offsite due to the fact I have a dog and I don't want to board her this trip. She is getting older and doe not like strange new places very much. This leaves me with just 30 days before to grab fastpasses. I can't get one for the new ride in Pandora and I am disappointed. I know I can still go standby but that means a very very long wait. I have accepted that most likely my family will not get to experience it this trip.
( i cant anyway due to a walking cast that may still be on)

Here is my question. Anyone else find that being disappointed 30 or even 60 days out is worse than the old way of trying to grab a fastpass first thing in the morning at the park? At least then there was a glimmer of hope. Or is it just me? :(

Walking cast

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-06-02 23:33
I tore my Achilles and May be in a walking cast at Disney for my trip. I can tolerate rides fine and walking is ok. But I am concerned with the rides with moving paths like haunted Mansion. I am not sure how well I can manage on those. Also is there rides in which they will not let me ride with a walking cast? I am piglet sized, so leg room usually is not a problem.

Something to be aware of

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-06-02 23:26
I just saw this and thought I'd pass along.



If you are visiting Walt Disney World in the near future be aware that scammers are calling guests’ resort rooms late at night asking for their credit card information. According to streamingthemagic.com, a guest was called at 12:07 a.m. from a number that posed as the front desk of her Walt Disney World Resort. Fortunately, the guest did not hand over her private information, but when she reported the incident to the front desk the next morning not only did the desk verify that it wasn’t Disney calling her, but they also stated that scammers have tried this tactic before!

Be aware that Disney will not call a guest’s room after 10:30 p.m. Additionally, never disclose your private information from an undisclosed phone number who is demanding your information. If something like this happens to you hang up, and call an official Disney phone number back directly, or talk to the front desk. Walt Disney World is the most magical place on earth, but it still won’t stop some scammers from trying to take advantage of trusting guests.
