    Does Disney require a room deposit either on a credit card or in cash upon check in? We will be on a very tight budget and I am wondering what I should expect. We are staying at POP in a standard room any other tips would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi, Jackelyn!

    You will not need to leave any type of deposit when checking in.  If you have a vacation package, this will have had to paid in full 45 days prior to arrival.  If you are doing a "room only" reservation, a one night's deposit is due when booking then the balance is due upon arrival. 

    If you do not leave a credit card on file when checking in, you will not be able to charge back to your room.  

    To save money, make sure to book a Standard Room, and book base tickets without adding on pricey options like park hopping or water parks.  

    I hope this helps.  Let us know if you need more budget-friendly tips as you plan your vacation!
