    With the new Magicband policy placing an initial holds of $100 at check in, then more holds when that amount is exceeded. Can I request a larger initial hold be placed so my bank doesn't flag for suspicious activity from multiple holds?

    Hi Patches!

    Thanks so much for popping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's so nice to see you again!

    Your question regarding the Payment Card Policy is a great one! Each Resort hotel may choose to handle holds in excess of $100 differently. Where are you staying when you visit in June? 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.

    Thanks to your very astute question, I plan to contact my bank prior to my vacation to let them know I will be traveling and may have multiple preauthorizations from Walt Disney World Resort. While ensuring my accounts are safe, my bank has been very accommodating when we travel or plan to have higher than normal expenditures. A little work on the front end will definitely help to enhance my vacation magic when I am visiting Walt Disney World Resort. Thank you!

    You are going to be at Walt Disney World Resort at such a fun time of year! The day 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! Thanks again for your wonderful question! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
