One of the credit cards I’ve had for the longest is the Disney Visa card issued by Chase. In fact, I’ve had many versions of Disney credit cards but when this particular card was launched, I’ve been a cardholder since, like my card says, “Day 1”

The first step of this initiative was Disney’s launch into the cruise business in 1998, with Disney Cruise Line. The executives noticed the success of the cruise division and looked for a way to replicate the model, but somewhere they didn’t have to build multi-million dollar cruise ships.
