Disney Visa Character Meet & Greets – Maps & Details

One of the best perks of the Disney Visa Card is the exclusive character meet & greets at both Disney World and Disneyland. This special experience means you wait in a very short line (or no line at all) to meet your favorite characters. Plus, you get to download your photos for FREE.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Disney Visa character meet & greets at Disney World and Disneyland. First, a few things to remember:

  • You must have your Disney Visa Card with you.
    • Note: We forgot our card on a trip and got into both meet & greets at Disney World by pulling up our account in the Chase app.
  • Valid for up to 6 people per cardmember account.
  • Scan a PhotoPass card or your MagicBand. This will allow you to download the free photos.

Disney Visa

The perks are the same whether you have the Disney Visa (no annual fee) or the Disney Premier Visa ($49 annual fee). So, you’ll get access to all the Disney Visa character meet & greets and other vacation discounts no matter which card you have. You can read more about the top perks here.

The sign up bonus is also the same ($200 statement credit) as long as you use a referral link for the no annual fee version. It’s only $50 otherwise.

Neither card earns particularly well for daily purchases. The Disney Premier earns 2% back at gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants and most Disney locations, and 1% on everything else. The Disney Visa earns 1% on everything.
