    Hi. My wife and I are travelling to Disney World in April 2023 and are staying at the All Star Sports hotel. I wanted to know if I can still cash dollar travellers cheques at the hotel front desk. As I’d rather still use them instead of a card when there.


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I just checked directly with Disney, and yes, you can still cash traveler's checks at your Disney Resort Collections hotel, which of course includes Disney's All-Star Sports Resort

    While you of course can carry your cash around with you during the day, you can apply some of that to your resort hotel account ahead of time, if you wish. That way you could charge items like food and souvenirs to your room, and the cost would come off that cash credit that you had placed. I do this with both gift cards and cash often on trips. But be careful.


    Well, Disney cannot refund any of those transfers to you, so if you put $100 of cash onto your resort balance and only spend $90 of that, you lose the $10 remainder. What I opt to do is put just what I know I am going to spend that day on the account. Periodically during my visit, I will go back and apply a bit more of my cash or gift card balance to the account, so that my credit card does not get charged for remaining spending until the end of the trip. By then I likely have run out of the cash or gift cards on hand, so the charge is to be expected.

    A lot of guests at Value hotels overlook the opportunity to relax at their hotel. I enjoy ending the evening every now and then by having a beverage with friends at Grandstand Spirits, the hotel pool bar. You get to take in some of the over-the-top decor of the hotel grounds, and relax a bit as you end your day.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
