    Does booking at pop century work the same as mpst chain hotels? (Meaning you book, they put a hold on the card when you check in, then you pay the bill the day of check out.) OR must we pay the entire bill for our stay ahead of time?

    It's great to see you here today at planDisney, Olivia! I'm so glad that you came here today to ask about one of my favorite Disney Resorts Collection Hotels: Disney's Pop Century Resort! I stay there at least once a year, and I love it because of the convenient location, awesome pools, and direct access to the Disney Skyliner. I know you'll love it too if you choose to stay there this summer!

    There are two different ways that you can book a stay at a Resort Hotel, and the payment deadlines vary depending on which one you choose. If you book a vacation package, meaning that you book a Resort Hotel stay at the same time as you purchase your Theme Park tickets, you will need to pay a small deposit and the remainder of the balance of your package will be due 30 days before your check-in date. If you make a room-only reservation, meaning that you do not bundle tickets together with your Resort Hotel reservation, you will pay a deposit equal to one night of your stay, and the remainder will be due upon check-in. No matter which booking method you choose, you have access to all the benefits of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, so just pick whichever one works best for your family!

    I hope this answers your question, Olivia, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
