American Express travellers cheques seem to be the main type available so I guess I will be getting some of those. Has anybody used travellers cheques to pay for their meal at a WDW restaurant (at a resort or one of the parks?) or a shop at Downtown Disney or in a resort shop at WDW? Anybody used them at restaurants in NY? What about buying tickets at tourist attractions like Empire State Building or Top of the Rock or a Museum? It is going to be food that we will mainly be using them in NY and WDW (yes and some shopping) Do you always or sometimes have to show ID? Just wondering if I am going to have to carry my passport around (I usually leave this this in the safe). I haven't used them in so long and then it was in London and Europe, with London in particular being a nightmare and usually having to pay commission to cash them. But I am really looking forward to having them again on this trip, it will just feel much safer walking around with those in my handbag rather than wads of cash or risking my credit card being skimmed (is that the right word ) Thanks Just found out too that Australia Post sells AMEX travellers cheques with no commission! Don't know what their rate is though, they may offer a worse rate than the banks to cover it, but will look into it. Does anybody know if AMEX charge commission when you get travellers cheques directly from them?
