    Greetings, Star! How exciting that your Walt Disney World vacation is almost here! And congratulations on your new Disney Visa Credit Card. I have been a cardholder for years, and I love adding a little magic to my everyday purchases.

    First let's talk about traveling from Disney's Pop Century Resort to Disney's Hollywood Studios. I am so excited for you to experience the Disney Skyliner - Disney's newest transportation system that will be your ride from your resort to both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. I had the opportunity to ride recently, and I absolutely loved this scenic and efficient new system. Good news! Each gondola is able to accommodate one ECV along with up to six guests. There will be no need to disembark your mobility device. When you arrive at the Disney Skyliner station, a Cast Member will direct you to the appropriate boarding area.

    To travel from Disney's Pop Century Resort to Disney's Hollywood Studios, you will first ride to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, which should be a short journey - less than five minutes once onboard. From there you will disembark your gondola and board the line bound for Disney's Hollywood Studios. Once you are airborne from Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, it will be another short five minute trip to Disney's Hollywood Studios. I would expect to spend about fifteen to thirty minutes total, depending on wait times at both stations. Happy flying!

    Now I will fill you in on the benefits of your new Disney Credit Card! There are currently two exclusive meet and greets for Disney Visa Cardholders. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, cardholders have the opportunity to visit the Star Wars Character Experience daily from 11 AM to 4 PM at Star Wars Launch Bay in the Animation Courtyard. At Epcot, you should head to the Disney Visa Photo Spot located next to Journey Into Imagination with Figment. Good news, Star! You don't need to link anything or sign up in advance. Just show up with your credit card in hand and a smile on your face. You will receive complimentary downloads of your photos.

    Be sure to explore the other perks that come with your Disney Visa Credit Card in Walt Disney World. As a cardholder, you are eligible for discounts on select merchandise purchases, dining, and recreation options throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Keep in mind that all perks are subject to change.

    I hope you have a magical stay, Star!
