Disney World Scam

Today we are learning about a new scam targeting guests at Walt Disney World Resorts and wanted to make sure our readers are aware.

The scam works like this: Guests check-in to their room and receive a call from the “Front Desk” of their resort a little bit later. The “Front Desk” representative tells the guest that they had problems verifying their credit card at check-in and they need the guest’s credit card information again. This is where the scam comes in….The “Front Desk” isn’t actually Disney but a scammer trying to get the resort guest’s credit card number. Guests that have been taken advantage of by the scam have reported credit card charges on their cards up to $5,000.

Here are some tips to keep you safe from these Disney Scammers:

  • Never give out any credit card or personal information over the phone. Speak to a Cast Member directly in person to give any sensitive personal information.
  • Some reports say that they received the phone call from the “Front Desk” as late as midnight. Disney will not call guest rooms directly after 10:30 pm.
  • If you do receive one of these phone calls, report it to the Front Desk of your resort immediately.

We all know that Walt Disney World is the most magical place in the world. With over 30,000 resort rooms and hundreds of thousands guests visiting at a time, it makes it such a great target for scammers. Let’s hope these scammers are stopped soon to keep it that way.
