    I am excited to see the schedule is out for the 2018 Food & Wine Festival. Do you know if Disney Card members will be able to make advanced reservations again this year? Also, do you know if Chase will sponsor the break area above the America's?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel,  Debbie! I know you’re a fan of Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival! I, too, am a Disney Visa cardholder and I adore the perks that come with it. From taking my kids to see Kylo Ren in Disney’s Hollywood Studios to the merchandise discounts, I’m always happy to use it. Not to mention the fun designs make the card fun to hold, too.

    I’m sorry to tell you that although many of the Festival schedules and previews have been mentioned on the Walt Disney World site, there has not yet been an announcement as to whether or not Disney Visa cardholders will have early access. I can tell you that on June 14, 2018, you may book Seminars and Demonstrations online. Speaking to the previous Chase card lounge atop the American Pavilion, it is my understanding that this space is slated to be the new location of Club 33 in Epcot, and the Chase lounge is no more. I, myself, saw the MagicBand doorbell installed on the building which makes me think it may already be functioning. I know you’re as sorry as me to see our Chase space disappear! You can always stop into Club Cool or a show such as American Adventure for an extended air conditioned entertainment space or a cool beverage outside the pavilion.

    If I can help you plan for your tasty visit this fall, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
