    Hi, My family is planning on linking our Disney Credit Card to the Disney World App and Magic Bands. My question is will we automatically get the discounts for the credit card at restaurants and shops using the bands? Or do you still need to present card?

    Hi Justin!

    Welcome to planDisney!  You're Walt Disney World Resort is "Just around the Riverbend!"  It won't be long until you're walking down Main Street, U.S.A. and enjoying your favorite Mickey-shaped snack!  

    Justin, don't you just love the Disney Visa Credit Card?  Besides the ability to earn Disney Rewards Dollars on your purchases, you can also enjoy discounts at several dining, recreation, and retail locations around Walt Disney World Resort!  You can also save 15% on select tours including Disney's Keys to the Kingdom Tour and Wild Africa Trek.  Some block out dates or limitations apply with these discounts so it's important to verify that you'll be able to use your discount when making any reservations.  There are also two exclusive character greetings for cardholders.  At EPCOT, you can find Mickey and/or some of his best pals meeting near Journey Into Imagination with Figment from 1:00 - 6:30.  Over at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you can visit a favorite character from a galaxy far, far away at Star Wars Launch Bay from 11:00 - 4:00.  

    In order to access all of your benefits and discounts, you'll want to make sure that you have your physical credit card with you in addition to having it linked as your payment method in the My Disney Experience Mobile App.  The Disney Visa website does note that the discount may be applied automatically in some situations, like using Merchandise Mobile Checkout at selected retail locations, but I've been asked to see my physical card in some restaurants and at the character greetings in my past visits.

    Justin, I hope you enjoy a wonderful visit to Walt Disney World Resort next month!  When you're ready to plan your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort, don't forget to check for special offers that may be available just for Disney Visa cardholders on room reservations or vacation packages!  You've got a friend in me here at planDisney and I hope that you stop by to see us again if you have any other vacation planning questions in the future!
