    how are the magic bands charged to my cc? I have heard statements like they put a hold on your card for $1000 for moderate resort guests, I've also heard they put a hold of $100 daily and if you go over they put another hold of another $100 . ??????

    Hi Nitsi!

    I'm so excited to see you will be at Walt Disney World Resort in a few short days! It's such a thrilling time to be visiting and I know you are going to have an amazing vacation!

    This is a great question! On the day of your arrival, your Resort hotel will place a hold for any balance due on the reservation plus $100 for estimated expenses. If spending exceeds the original hold, additional incremental holds will be placed automatically. The holds will not exceed the current balance due plus $100. Folios are processed once per day, at the end of the day, so you should only see the charges/holds placed once per day.

    Whenever we travel, I always try to call my bank and let them know my plans so they will expect the charges/holds. We were at Walt Disney World Resort a few days ago and in all of my excitement to arrive, I neglected to call my credit card company. Everything was fine because I didn't have any issues with the pre-authorizations or charges going through. 

    Thanks for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you have any other questions as you put the finishing touches on your vacation planning! I know you are going to have a great time at Walt Disney World Resort. Enjoy every magical moment!
