    Lv panel! coming 4/4, online check in, are we required to put a credit card on file? Planning on doing vacation with all cash. Also which rms/areas are best at Coronado, driving self, will not have to rely on buses, close to main pool ideally. Thanks!

    Hi Heather,

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip, how exciting! Yes, it is my understanding that you will need to put a credit card down on your reservation to use the online check-in system. If you would like to pay by cash, and still would like to use the online check -in, I would suggest checking in online with your credit card. This will allow you to charge to your room during your stay if you would like. At some point during your stay, stop at the resort front desk and pay for your charges with cash. Then on your departure day, stop at the desk again and pay any additional charges with cash. This will prevent any charges from being applied to your credit card. You can also supply a credit card number during your online check in and then use cash during your vacation.

    Hope one of these ideas works for you. Have a great time!
