    Is there a required amount to apply for a credit card?

    Hey there, Courtney! Welcome to planDisney!

    Gawrsh, it looks like your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is starting TOMORROW! I'm sure all of your plans are in place, so now you're thinking about ways to maximize your vacation dollars. Good on you for considering the Disney Visa credit card. You can earn lots of perks from your card, and you'll even get discounts on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. That's enough to make even the English majors among us (like me!) feel like financial gurus!

    I took a look at the eligibility requirements to apply for a card, and all I can see is that you "must have a valid permanent home address within the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, or the USVI, or have a United States military address." It also notes that, like all credit cards, accounts are subject to credit approval, so this is a regular credit card rather than one based on a savings account, meaning there's no mention of having a starting balance. It also looks like you can get a Disney Visa debit card if you have a checking account with Chase.

    Courtney, I encourage you to peruse the Disney Rewards website and see if a Disney Visa card is for you. If it is, you can apply online, and even choose your own card design (I think that Vintage Mickey one is speaking to me!).

    I hope this information was helpful for you, Courtney. Have an amazing vacation, and please be sure to come see us again real soon!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
