Yes they do require a security deposit. However sometimes I have found that if there is a large line at check in they might not do it to get the line moving quicker. This has been my experience at bc and other Wyndham properties.

We have never been required to provide a security deposit.

I researched this question the other day because someone was asking. I found posts as far back as 2011 and like you are saying.. they all seemed to have a different answer. Even the amounts held seemed to be different. Some people said they've never had to, some said it was $150, others said $250.
I would just be prepared to pay it and hopefully it won't be necessary.

I have some pool questions!

Are any of them quieter than others? Similar to a quiet pool at the disney resorts? If so, near which towers?

Also, which pools have a lazy river? Again, near which tower(s)?

As far as tower choices....would anyone say there are towers that are less desirable than others? As far as location and proximity to the rest of the resort?

Thanks!

We were at Bonnet Creek 2 weeks ago and at Wyndham in Washington DC last year and we were never asked for a security deposit in either instance.

I just booked my stay at WBC through VS (yay)! I had one quick question. Do all the rooms have a balcony? I thought they did based on floor plans I looked at, but then I wasn't sure reading some reviews. It seems that maybe some of the hotel rooms don't have balconys (understandably) but do all the time share properties? Thanks!

Yes, All of the units which are part of the timeshare resort have a balcony or Patio. (obviously, ground floor units have a patio instead of an elevated balcony)

Thank you DC for the reply! Also I haven't finished my profile (and haven't figured out how to load a picture) but I noticed from yours that you live less than an hour from me! Small world!

We used Vacation Strategies in October and were not asked to provide a security deposit. They asked if we'd like to put a credit card on file for resort purchases, but we said no and that was it.

I haven't read this whole thread but I wanted to say that I just called to request a tower for our May 28th stay and I was told that they no longer take requests for views/towers unless you are the owner. This is a service/ammenity of being an owner. My in-laws are the owners so maybe I should have my mil call and see if she can request for us.

Has anyone else run into this? Maybe I missed it on here as I haven't read the entire thread.

Just thought of something else..... we are getting 2 day base tickets but I haven't bought them yet. Can we buy those at WBC and are those good to go to the gate or do we need to stop at the TTC first?

Thanks!

You can buy tickets at the WBC Lobby that are actual Disney Admission Media. You won't need to stop by the TTC ticket booths upon your arrival at the parks.

(Obviously, You'll still go thru the TTC from your car to the Monorail/ferry... or the WBC shuttle drop off to the monorail/Ferry.)

More people go to Disney from our area than anywhere in the country. That's why Disney sends characters to the Philly Thanksgiving parade over any other parade.

Regarding a security deposit, is it possible that the folks who book directly with the resort on cash are asked to provide one, while owners are not?
