  • Great perk for Disney Visa Card Holders at Epcot

    On this weekend's trip to WDW, we took advantage of a little known perk for Disney Visa card holders.

    Basically, having a Disney Visa Card entitles guests to get one free 5X7 photograph taken by a Disney photographer at Epcot's Innovations West. This is held daily from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM in a hidden corner that is very easily passed over. After waiting for about a minute, we were allowed to enter a private room where Mickey, Minnie and Goofy were waiting for us along with a photographer just for us. We were really treated like royalty with personal hugs from the characters. It was so much fun. We could have probably stayed a little more time in there.

    Before you walk in, you're given a certificate for the free photo and after about 30 minutes, you can go to the Epcot Camera Center and redeem it for your free photo.

    I have heard about this but we have never done it.
    We really need to take advantage of this. My daughter would be thrilled!

    Epcot has a couple of neat "free" experiences.

    Just this past weekend our daughter participated in the Jr. Chef program in the Land. They make Nestle Tollhouse Cookies.

    The last time we were at Epcot we did the Robot game/show/whatever. We now have a cute plastic robot.

          When we were there in January, I was renting a wheelchair for Rick's mom. When I gave them my Disney Visa card, they rang up a "$0" sale, gave me my receipt and said there would be no charge since I presented my card. Pretty nice feeling!

              we did it on our trip in Oct. It was great. We waited about 20 mins and then we got Mickey and Pluto all to ourselves. We didn't feel rushed at all, and the picture was amazing!!! Probably my favorite one yet (besides the one of my daughter kissing Dopey). The backdrop has all kinds of hidden Mickeys in it. We just discovered this about a month ago...it was so much fun pointing them out to each other. I highly recommend this!

                  apply to Visa. You can look it up on their website. You also earn Disney Dollars for using the card. AND you can get great deals on vacations! We got ours in Oct for just at $1,000 for a 5 night stay, and 6 day ticket!!!

                    Does anyone know what are the restrictions on this? Is there anything to keep a local from going in and getting a picture every weekend?

                    Just Wondering, not saying I'd do it...:whistling

                      From what I understand, it's one picture per day.

                          Nope, there aren't any ones posted. They do write down your card number/last number and name though to keep some sort of track as to who has been there that day. I've done this a few times and it's always been fun. The characters are a surprise so you can't always count on Mickey or anyone listed being there, but it tends to be the tradition characters. I've seen Pluto and the 'monks as well.

                            We accidently found this and were elated! It became a highlight of our last trip to Florida! Mickey and Pluto all to ourselves! They found out I was a teacher and then the handlers were asking all sorts of questions and it was waaaay coool!

                              We always seem to find ourselves on the otherside of the park when 1:30-4:30 comes around. But thanks for the info. Now that I know it is not crowded, we may try to be near that location on our next trip.
