    We have booked our trip directly through Disney and the balance is paid for our trip. They ask for a credit card at check in but I do not have a credit card. If I use my debit card will they place money on hold for possible incidentals ?

    Hi Rhonda,

    You do not have to provide a credit card upon check in. You can inform the front desk that you do not wish to have charging priviledges and you'll be all set. Your Key to the World card will say, "Not Valid for Charging" on it, but will still serve as your room key and park pass. I've often opted not to leave a credit card as I prefer to pay with cash and stick to my budget that way.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
