    Hello! I LOVE the panel!! My vacation is paid in full but I was wondering if Disney puts a certain amount on a credit card hold for incidentals?? Thanks so much!!

    Hi Kathleen,

    Thanks for the very nice compliment....we all appreciate it!  It depends on whether or not you want to have charging privileges put onto your "Key to the World" card when you arrive and check-in to your WDW Resort.  If you would like to have these charging privileges, then it depends on which Resort level you will be staying at.  I was told on one of my trips by the reservations agent who checked me into my WDW Resort that if you are staying in a Value Resort, then the "hold amount" they put onto your credit card is $500.00, for the Moderate Resorts the amount is $1000.00 and for the Deluxe Resorts it is $1,500.00.  I think that they can do less if you ask them, but I am not 100% sure, so it is best to verify this with them when you check-in.  Have a great vacation.

    Best wishes,
