    My sister, dad, and I have surprised my mom with a trip to Disney - will she need the credit card that we booked the trip with upon check in?

    No, you can use a different credit card. We do it all the time. :)

    1) You can use the same card.
    2) You can use a different card for the room charges.
    3) You can use a different card for each person's key charges.
    4) You can just register without using ANY card. *


    * It is never necessary to have a card on file, unless you want to charge to your KTTW key.

    Really? That's an improvement. It was a few years ago, but when my sister traveled with us to Saratoga Springs we had to change the card on the room folio, charge an amount to her card, then change it back to my card.

    No. They will ask if you want to use it for charges, but it is not necessary. The CC is only to hold the reservation. You can use any other card or payment type you wish.

    I've always wondered how Disney handles things if a guest actually DOES trash a room. I guess being Disney, that's rare enough that they don't worry too much about it?

    When using your CC at Check In, do they put a hold on it with a transaction amount? Last time we stayed at WBC they put a $500 'hold charge' on my card, and I nearly died in shock.
