    For the 1st time we’ll be in the parks without a dining plan. As a Disney Visa holder, when should I use my card for food & when should I charge to the room (where I’ll also use the card). I want to maximize discounts while earning points for next trip

    Hey there, Alicia!

    I am a fellow Disney Visa Card Holder, and I absolutely love the savings that I get to take advantage of while we are on vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Dining locations in the theme parks that are currently accepting a Disney Visa discount include: 

    Tiffins (Disney's Animal Kingdom)
    The Hollywood Brown Derby (Disney's Hollywood Studios)
    Hollywood & Vine (Disney's Hollywood Studios)
    Biergarten Restaurant (EPCOT)
    Coral Reef Restaurant - Lunch (EPCOT)
    Le Cellier Steakhouse - Lunch (EPCOT)
    Rose & Crown Dining Room - Lunch (EPCOT)
    Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen (Magic Kingdom)

    You will also find that several participating locations outside of the theme parks accept the discount, including: 

    Boma – Flavors of Africa
    Flying Fish (see restrictions)
    Sebastian's’s Bistro
    Toledo – Tapas, Steak & Seafood
    Trail’s End Restaurant
    Cítricos (see restrictions)
    Grand Floridian Cafe
    Olivia’s Cafe
    Kona Cafe
    Boatwrights Dining Hall
    The Turf Club Bar and Grill
    Whispering Canyon Cafe
    Ale & Compass Restaurant
    Cape May Cafe

    Alicia, discounts and participating locations are subject to change, so I recommend that you ask your server if they offer the discount before you receive your bill. If they do, you will want to pay with your card. If they do not, simply present your MagicBand.

    Happy noshing!
