I am so excited that the Chase Cardholder Lounge has returned! Last year, it was a great get-away to escape the Florida heat and crowds. The lounge is located in the upper level of the American Adventure Pavilion, featuring a complimentary beverage station and charging stations that were accommodating for almost any device.  Plenty of entertainment for all ages was available, from televised sports channels to Disney themed board games. Be sure to bring your Chase card with you & enjoy this perk!

Celebrated for its inspired food-and-beverage marketplaces, high-energy concerts and premium dining events, the Festival will sizzle with a variety of ethnic and specialized marketplaces.
