    Does anyone know how much of a hold or authorization the POR puts on your credit card for room charging privileges when you check in?

    If you would like to add charging privileges to your Disney resort room key, the standard initial hold for the deluxe resorts is $1500, for the moderate resorts is $1000, and for the value resorts is $500.  Port Orleans is a moderate resort, so the initial hold would be $1000. However, you have many options at check-in:

    - You could decline room charging. This way there would be no hold placed on your card.

    - You could ask for a smaller charge limit.

    - You could ask for a larger charge limit.

    Simply tell the front desk what works best for your family.

    Enjoy your stay at Walt Disney World.
