In the podcast you mentioned a discount for Disney Visa cardholders. Any tips on how I can get more details on this discount? I have checked the Chase site and Disney site and not finding this discount listed. Thanks!

A podcast on Annual pass discounts would be a great follow up to this. I have been debating purchasing one for a trip next year but I’m still up in the air as to whether the investment is worth it. Thanks for collecting all of this information together. I’ve been considering renting DVC points for that trip, but I cannot yet (trip is not until next December) and I’m still crunching all numbers to see what my best deal is (especially since I know that season is popular with owners and availability may be limited).
