Hello: Is there any kind of fee by disney if we use our Sears calling card to make a long distance phone call from our disney hotel room?

Most hotels charge you the equivalent of the cost of a "local" call, since you access your calling card using a 1-800 number. Many hotels charge $1 per call for a local call.

May I suggest you use your cell phone? Most have no roaming fees now.

Disney no longer charges for local, 1-800, or calling card calls (they used to charge $0.85 per call, but eliminated this charge).

Hi:
I am from Canada and with rogers. I did add a package to my cell phone account for $60.00 I receive 120 minutes of time to call back to Canada, I was going to get the $40.00 for 60 minutes and use my calling card from the room. Last time we were there it ended up being annoying having to use my calling card on a pay phone from the lobby as there was alot of background noise.

So now I need to decide to drop to the lowest $40, 60 minutes and use the room phone with my calling card, as the calling card is alot less money per minute.

Thanks for asking & answering this question.
I was wondering the same thing about the calling card.
We have cell phones but *NO roaming (so I do not wish to pay crazy high rates)...
plus...*I don't want to have to keep track of the phone all week.
:rolleyes1 and I'll be on vacation & my boss will just drive me crazy :sad2: if i take the phone along....it's supposed to be vacation:goodvibes
