Chase Lounge Returns for 2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

For the third year in a row, thanks to Chase’s sponsorship of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, the exclusive Chase Lounge will make a return. The lounge will be located, once again, at the American Adventure Pavilion, in the American Adventure Parlor, which is located on the third floor, with its entrance found between the attraction and the gift shop.

The lounge allows guests to have a seat, relax, recharge electronics, grab a complimentary soft drink, read a magazine, check out the interactive festival map, grab a Discovery Passport, and – most importantly – soak up some much needed air conditioning! (Touring and eating around World Showcase gets HOT!) During last year’s festival, beer and wine were also available to purchase; there is no word  yet on whether that option will return this year. Also, in previous years guests could obtain preferred viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth and Eat to the Beat concerts as long as wristbands (which were distributed on a first come, first served basis) were available. No word yet on if that will be available for guests, either. I’ll make sure to keep you posted.

Chase cardholders must present a Disney Visa Card to gain access (though in the past any Chase card would work for entry, and, of course, Epcot theme park admission is required), and each card member may bring up to nine guests. The Chase Lounge will be available from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday during the Festival. Do keep in mind that the lounge often reaches capacity, and when it does, will move to a one person out-one person in system.

I visited the Chase Lounge last year, so if you are curious about how it works, make sure to read my post.

    Thanks for the review! I did not know about this perk. Just to clarify, only Disney Chase Visa holders are admitted with guests this year? Not other Chase credit card holders? (of which I have two and may need to remedy.)

      As per the info I received, it says only Disney Chase Cards, however, last year, any Chase card would work. I don’t know if they will be changing the policy stated and allow for any Chase card, or if indeed only Disney Chase Cards will be accepted.

    Do they require ID when entering the lounge or just the credit card?

    I hope they do bring back the IllumiNations preferred viewing. That worked out great for us two years ago. I was hoping to do it this year too!

      Do they give away IllumiNations preferred viewing wrist bands on first come, first served basis- at this lounge location?

        If they end up doing Illuminations preferred viewing wristbands, they will be on a first come, first served basis at the lounge.

    Great news! Do you know if Chase employees receive any special perks during the festival? My husband wants to know if he should bring his work ID. Thanks!

      Hi Marcie…sorry for the delayed reply, but I do not know if Chase employees receive any special perks. I would maybe have him ask at work to see if the company will be doing anything unique for employees.
