    When using the key to the world card for charges, when will they be charged to your credit card? At the end of your trip or each transaction? Thanks, you have helped answer a ton of questions!


    The answer lies somewhere in between!

    So what they will do is allow you to charge to your room, without billing your credit card, until you hit a certain limit. When you spend that amount, they will charge your credit card that amount, and will then start the number back at zero. They will again bill your card when you hit that number again.

    Does that make sense?

    Another point to remember is that on your last night they will bill the remainder of your charges. 

    In the case of the regular charging as based on a predetermined spending amount, you should definitely ask them what that amount is, if it is important to you. It is to me, as we often have a few gift cards to apply to the room, so we want to be sure to get them in there before the credit card gets billed.

    In the case of the last night billing, know that it is very hard for them to retract that billing and then apply the charge to a different card the morning you check out. So if you need to make any last minute changes, make sure you visit your resort's front desk the AFTERNOON of the day before you check out. 

    Write me back if you need further clarification, or if you have any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
