    At it mandatory to have a credit/debit card on file for incidentals? If so, will there be a hold placed on either card?

    Hi Jeffrey,

    Its always great to plan ahead!  I've always given a credit card number so I called Disney reservations to see if its required.  They told me that you are not required to leave a credit card on file for incidentals.  If you have any charges, you will need to go by the lobby to pay your outstanding charges before checking out.

    If you decide to leave a credit card to have on file, they will not put a hold on the card.  Your card would only be charged if you have any charges to your room.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions during your planning.  Its awesome fun for us to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
