    We will be at Disney World from 12/24 to 1/1, staying at the Port Orleans French Quarter. When we arrive if I link my debit/CC card to the room and we make charges, will it charge my card in real time or at the end of the visit?

    Hi Richard:

    Thanks for sending another question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner, what a great way to celebrate the holiday season!  Whenever I have linked my credit card to my MagicBand for purchases, I have found that my card has been charged either on the night prior to check out or on the day of checkout. Personally, I like to visit the front desk and settle my account on my last evening, just so I know everything has been taken care of.   Any charges after that have been added to my card at the end of the day.  Upon your arrival, I would recommend asking the Cast Member when your card will be charged, just to avoid any surprises.   While on vacation, I like to stop by the front desk every few days and ask for a printout of my charges, so that I can keep track of what we have spent.  

    I hope you have a magical vacation Richard.  Please let us know if you have any last minute questions, we are here to help!
