    Me and my group are staying at all star sports next year and paying for a package. We were told we would need a credit card/debit card on booking. Is there a nightly charge to our card? Is a card mandatory or can we check in without having to leave one?

    Hello Holly-Marie, 
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where I'm always extra happy to offer assistance to another lovely Guest from the United Kingdom with their jolly holiday plans to visit the magic of Walt Disney World Resort! 
    I'm excited to know you're planning a group holiday for next yEar staying at the larger than life and super athletically themed Disney's All-Star Sports Resort; for sure you're all going to love the many wonderful Resort Recreation possibilities on offer especially the splashtastic swimming pools. 
    I believe there are 2 answers to your query about payment methods - the first is that Guests will indeed need a credit or debit card as a form of payment when booking a holiday package to Walt Disney World Resort for example: MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, Switch, Delta or American Express are accepted. 
    And secondly to utilise the convenience of Express Checkout for Walt Disney World Resorts Guests should leave a credit card on file in addition to linking a payment method to their My Disney Experience account which in turn seamlessly links to MagicBands making paying for things during a Disney holiday such as dining, merchandise and so on an absolute doddle!
