    I have paid off my reservation for July and wanted to know if we would need to make a hotel deposit the day off? When we check in?

    Hey, Myrna, welcome to planDisney! I'm always happy to answer a question for a fellow Texan. I bet you're getting so excited about your vacation, which is just a few hours away! Let's jump right in and chat about what will happen when you arrive and what kind of charges you might expect beyond the payments you have already made. 

    Myrna, since you have already paid for your vacation in full, you will not have to make any more payments associated with your reservation when you check into your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. If you want to set up a credit card to make charges to your room using your MagicBand+, a $100 authorization hold will be placed on your card to make sure that it's working properly and that you'll be able to cover any incidentals. Throughout your vacation, you may see more authorization holds placed on your credit card, but they will not exceed the balance of your charges plus $100. The hold amount is subject to change, so be sure to check the amount with the front desk when you check in so you have the most up-to-date information. Shortly after you return from your vacation, those holds will be cleared and only your balance due will remain!

    I hope this answers your question, Myrna, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
