ATM bank machines
Will my bank card (canadian) from my credit union work in the hotel or parks? It's a credit union card. I'm very nervous. Last time I was down, my bank card worked but it wasn't from a credit union. Are there a lot of ATM in the parks, pop century, etc?
there at least two atm's per park and charge $2 per transaction
It really depends on what 'system' your card operates. I've had no problem with my Canadian bank card.
Back to Disney for Super Soap Weekend!
The Pop Century's ATM is outside the gift shop near the telehones
I'm not sure if there is a problem using a Canadian bank card, but if there isn't an issue, don't use the ATMs. You don't need cash unless you need to take a taxi. All of the food courts, restaurants, gift shops and even the food carts take debit cards. We used to spend the $2 fee to get money out, but on our last several trips we have gone cashless.
Just a thought.

Most ATMs on property (in the resorts, in the parks) participate in the following networks:
Visa, Plus, MasterCard, Cirrus, American Express, Discover/Novus
Look on the back of your card to see if you have a logo that matches the above.
Also, there are SunTrust ATMs which work with the following:
Cirrus, Star, Honor, Publix/Plus, AmericanExpress, Master Card, Vi
at the following locations:
SunTrust drive-thru across the street from DOWNTOWN DISNEY Marketplace
Hess Express Station across from DOWNTOWN DISNEY Pleasure Island
Hess Express Station across from Disney-MGM Studios entrance on Buena Vista Drive
Hess Express Station at the Car Care Center near the Magic Kingdom Toll Plaza
House of Blues at Downtown Disney West Side
If you have a problem, though, check with a CM at Guest Services, there may be alternatives (Credit Union 24, CU HERE networks, for example). Ask your bank, too - they may have a website to find in-network ATMs. I'm sure if you need cash, Disney will probably help you get it, so you can give it back to them
If you are staying onsite you can also charge to your room with your room key all over property... It is super convenient, and you have a list of everything you spent money on when you check out . I do like to keep some Cash on hand (usually no more than $20 or $30) for that instance when I need a quick drink, and the person pushing the closest cart doesn't accept credit.
do they have cerrus are pluse atm credit union card?
I agree. I do everything possible cashless though! I don't carry a balance on my card, and pay-off in full every month, but I do put everything possible on it to get more Disney/Southwest rewards - even my cable bill.

I have a question kind of related. We are on the dining plan and I know that tip is no longer included. Can you swipe a card for the tip or do I have to carry cash for that?
