    I have recently been approved for a Disney Visa Card. I think I read somewhere that DVC holders are notified a few days in advance of others about the free dining offer. Is this correct? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer!

    Congratulations on getting your new Disney Rewards Visa Card from Chase! I have the Tinker Bell version of the card, and receive a lot of compliments on it.  Our family makes good use of the card benefits, and I love watching those Disney Rewards Dollars add up every month!

    From time to time, Disney Rewards Visa Cardmembers are allowed to book new promotional vacation deals before the general public, or sometimes are offered deals that are never offered to the public. This is a wonderful benefit, especially if you want the greatest availability for popular promotions.  You should receive a quarterly newsletter from Disney Rewards Visa that profiles current benefits and deals. Generally though, you don’t always receive immediate notification of a new vacation promotion.  

    I have a few recommendations for you. lists current special promotions, and you can sign up on their site for an email notification when a new offer is available. In the past, I have always received timely notification from them of free dining. Another popular site is There you can sign up for a monthly email newsletter and occasional “hot deals” email. This is another good way to be aware of current promotions. You can also follow both of these websites and Walt Disney World on Facebook for timely updates.

    Please keep in mind, that although the free dining promotion has been offered in the past, there is no guarantee it will be offered in the future. If it will be offered, it is usually made available in the spring and can be found on Walt Disney World’s Special Offers page.

    I hope this information was helpful, and that you enjoy all the benefits of your new Disney Rewards Visa from Chase. Feel free to ask any additional questions you have while planning your next magical vacation!
