My friend and I checked into the AKL on May 22nd. We had went to DTD to purchase our APs about 20 minutes prior to checking in. I paid for my AP's with a check and they verified the funds. No problem as I had tons of money for the vacation in my account We went over to the AKL to check in and pay the balance which was less than $1000. I asked if I could pay with a check and she said thats fine. I have duplicate checks and I like to have paper record. She went to verify the check and it came back declined. After having my voice go up 2 octives when I said What???? she explained she didnt know why and I needed to call my bank. I deal with this a lot in my work and I know it was nothing she would know. The funny thing is that my check card was accepted. After everything was taken care of I called my bank and they said everything on my account was perfectly fine. The only thing I can surmise is that WDW does not like for you to write 2 checks in that small of a time frame. I cant understand why because they can verify the funds and put a hold but thats the only thing I can think of. The rest of the vacation went fine but if I didnt have a check card I wouldnt have been so fine. I hope this helps anyone else. On the bright side we were put on a 5th floor pool view when I booked plain pool view. It was a great location. Room 5424!
