I used my debit/credit card when I went in June it was very easy and kept me from carrying large amounts of money on me. I would visit the ATM in the morning so that I would have cash on hand for vendors and other places that accept cash only.
I only carried enough cash so that if I wanted a Coke or a Mickey Bar I could buy that, Everything else got charged to my key. Even if they carts take my key this year I think I'll still carry cash. I hardly ever use it but I just don't fell comfortable unless I know I have at least $10 in my pocket.
I've used both...they accept anything with a visa or mastercard or AMEX symbol on it. I've always used my room card and then charged all of it to my credit card if I wasn't using CASH or traveler's cheques...my preference is traveler's cheques....because I allot so much per day and only take that much in my waistpack...with a hidden safety $100 or $50...on my person...just in case!
I am with you, Cheeser. I allot myself $100 cash per day to blow. I usually come back at the end of the trip with money, though, because I make sure my hotel, flight, car, etc are paid for before I go. I noticed the last time that I went and I used a credit card, there were additional service fees added at restaurants. I am not doing that again! Amy
