    My mother-in-law is gifting us with a few days at Disney! She plans to purchase this on her Disney credit card. She will not be going with us, so we are concerned that not having this credit card in-hand will cause an issue at check-in. Is this the case?

    Hi There Whitney,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can't think of a more "pixie-dusted" gift than a few days at the Walt Disney World Resort; your family must be so excited! 

    Upon check-in at your Resort Hotel, you will be asked to provide a credit card for incidentals and also asked if you would like to add charging privileges to your MagicBand. It does not have to be the same credit card that was used to book the Resort Reservation. As long as the Reservation balance has been paid in full prior to your arrival you will not need to have your Mother-In-Law's credit card with you. 

    Please sop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
