If your heading to Disney World and want to ditch your purse or wallet you can! Thank fully Disney thought of everything and allows you to charge things to your room key if you are staying at one of the many Disney Resorts. Here is more…

  • If we want to dispute a charge it is easier for Disney to remove the charge from the Key to the World than from a debit or credit card. We had an issue on our last trip where they double charged us for our Annual Passes. We used our debit card so it took a few days for the charges to be resolved. If we had charged them to our room the funds would have been replaced almost immediately.
  • I feel safer visiting the parks with just the Key to the World. We carry a little cash with us for snacks and other small expenses and then charge everything else to our room. We leave our cash and cards back in the room in our safe. Just make sure you sign your key in just in case.
  • It is a convenient way to keep track of the money we spend at the parks. You can get an itemized print out of your charges at the front desk any time during your stay. All of our expenses are listed together instead of paying cash for some things and charging others.
  • Almost anything can be charged to your room. Even the kiosks at the parks have the ability to charge items to your room. All Disney owned businesses will accept your Key to the World, even some that are not will. So if you are shopping at Downtown Disney make sure you have another form of payment with you just in case.

Let us know what your experience has been using your Key to the World card for charges. Do you prefer to charge to your room or would you rather use cash or plastic in the parks?
