We just joined the club and now I need to know how to work the system. Any pros out there?
Carrying the card in the parks: We want to connect our card to our resort account so that all we need to pay for meals and merchandise is our Magic Bands, but it occurs to me that a cast member would have to know that I’m a card holder to apply a discount at time of purchase. I spoke to 2 cast members so far and one said I have to have the card on me to validate the discount and the other said it’s all tied to the Magic Band so there’s no need to bring the card with me. Not wanting to be caught out in the cold (and without a well-earned discount) do I have to keep the card on me or can I leave it in the safe?
Purchases that earn the discounts: I see that my purchases need to be $50 or more to get the 10% cardholder discount. But I doubt my family will spend $50 per store they shop in - and, due to tastes, I doubt we’ll all buy all our merch in the same stores. So 2 questions come to mind:
- Do all purchases on the property count together to earn the 10% discount? (I doubt it, so…)
- Is there a way to shop the park, note the items we want to buy, and then do one big purchase order from our room at the resort? I know you can do something like this at Disneyland, but wonder if it’s possible at WDW.
Thanks for your help and creative solutions.
