Speculation has been circulating for a while now that the Chase Disney Visa cards would soon be a thing of the past. Adding fuel to this rumor was the announcement earlier this Summer that Chase was pulling out of its sponsorship of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and that the Chase Dinsey Visa Lounge, a popular spot for festival guests to relax and unwind would not be available this year.
However, it looks card-carrying Disney Visa members are safe, at least for a little while longer. The announcement was made earlier this week that Disney and Chase have renewed both the Disney Premier Visa card and the Disney Visa debit card as part of a multi-year agreement. This continues a longstanding partnership between the two companies which has lasted well over a decade.
Leslie Gillin, President of Co-Brand Credit Cards at Chase had this to say about the partnership: “Our relationship with Disney for a co-branded card program spans nearly 15 years, and this extension reinforces our shared commitment to bring exceptional rewards and experiences to our Disney Cardmembers. It’s an honor to work with such a distinguished brand known throughout the world for creating happiness.”
This sentiment was matched by Priya Girishanker, Senior Vice President and General Manager of co-branded cards for The Walt Disney Company who added, ““We are very pleased to extend our longstanding relationship with Chase. Disney is beloved for its storytelling and for creating memories that last a lifetime, and Disney Visa lets Cardmembers access the best of Disney and share those magical experiences with their family and friends.”
The Disney Visa cards have long been a fan favorite providing Disney guests with nice perks including theme park discounts, merchandising discounts at the Disney Store and disneystore.com as well as exclusive character meet and greets and priority booking for select Disney events. Cardmembers also earn reward dollars on all card purchases which they can then redeem and use toward vacation packages, souvenirs etc.
