    Is the disney character meet and greets for credit card members only available at epcot? we planned on going to just the magic kingdom. If so can you just go to epcot for the meet and greet or do you need a ticket to enter.

    Hi, Justin! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for dropping by with your question. I first applied for the Disney Visa just for the magical Cinderella Castle design but quickly discovered all of the great vacation perks associated with it. The one you have mentioned provides cardholders with not just one, but two exclusive opportunities to hang out with pretty awesome Disney characters at Epcot's Future World and at Disney's Hollywood Studios Star Wars Launch Bay. Unfortunately, there is not one currently offered at Magic Kingdom Park.

    If you would like to feel the power of the force, you will need to head to Disney's Hollywood Studios with your Disney Visa as those characters do not currently meet in any other location. You will need a ticket to enter the park, easily solved by adding the Park Hopper option to your theme park ticket.

    You can meet some of the same Epcot location characters during your magical Disney day. The characters that meet Disney Visa cardholders at the Epcot location usually rotate between Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Pluto. On the day you visit Magic Kingdom Park, pick up a Times Guide as you enter the park to check for current places and times to meet these characters. To help you plan ahead, here is a list of where I have been able to find these fun friends at this park:

    *Mickey Mouse regular meets new friends at Town Square Theater, found just as you enter the park on your right. This is a FastPass+ enabled experience!
    *Pluto is usually found bounding up to friends in Town Square near the flagpole each day.
    *Minnie Magnifique and The Great Goofini meet in the truly unique Pete's Silly Sideshow setting of the Storybook Circus section.

    I hope this helps you plan a day where the magic is endless!
