    Hi I know there is a change to the policy for guests staying on site, and using their Magic Bands to make purchases. Instead of Disney authorizing $100 incremental holds, can we request at check-in a specific amount to preauthorize?

    Hi Chrissy! Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel again! I'm so grateful to see all of your questions! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your vacation planning! 

    Each Resort hotel may choose to handle holds other than $100 differently. I recommend you give your Resort hotel a call, before your vacation begins, so you may inquire about this before your arrival. You can also reach out to the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations Center at 407-934-7639.

    You will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort at one of my favorite times of year! A few days after you arrive, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will celebrate summer with Disney H2O Glow Night! This ticketed event is going to be so much fun with a dance party, Character Greetings with some of your favorite Toy Story friends, yummy food, and more! Oh my goodness! I'm getting excited thinking about how much fun you are going to have!

    Plus - the 2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is happening through June 3. Epcot has come alive with amazing topiaries, delicious food at outdoor kitchens, and fantastic entertainment! The flowers will take your breath away. It's a beautiful time to be at Epcot! Have your camera ready as there will be oodles of opportunities to capture stunning photos.

    Thank you again for sharing all of your questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
