Beginning February 27, Walt Disney World Resort hotels will be altering their payment card policy to better align with typical hotel industry practices.

  • Under the new policy, Walt Disney World Resort hotels will place incremental authorization holds on the guest’s payment card for estimated incidental expenses.
  • While this is a normal practice for hotels, Walt Disney World Resort hotels do not currently place any holds on guests’ cards.
  • Guests have the option to not put a credit card on file but they will then be unable to charge to their room or MagicBand.
  • An alert of the policy change will be sent to guests in the My Disney Experience App during their online check-in.
