[QUOTE=Jen in Maine;1002668]My plan is to pay for our resort stay with my debit card. I will get paid mid vacation and that amount will cover our stay.
Wondering if this will work. . .when they swipe my card at the beginning of the stay, there will not be enough money in my account to cover the hotel stay :ohmy: but by mid stay there will be. Will this work?[/QUOTE]BIG problem here! Sorry to say, but it is a big problem.
You are staying at a Disney resort, right? I’m assuming you booked a room-only reservation. I assume this because if you booked a package, your ENTIRE amount is due IN FULL no later that 45 days prior to your arrival.
So you booked a room-only reservation at a Disney owned-and-operated resort. Here is your problem: the full amount of your stay (the room rate) is due AT CHECK-IN. Disney doesn’t collect your money at the end of your stay (like most hoteliers do), they collect it before they hand you your room key. If you can’t pay in-full at the moment of check-in, then you won’t get your room. They won’t wait until the middle or end of your hotel stay to get paid by you.
There is no such thing at Disney as “guaranteeing with a credit card.” In fact, Disney is one of the only hoteliers in the country that doesn’t require a credit card (or anything else) as a deposit or to have “on file” or “for security” or “for incidentals” or anything like that. No plastic required at check-in … againm this is VERY different from most other places in the USA.
I’m sorry to share the bad news, but I thought you’d want the info so you can make the necessary plans.
