Banks

This section is meant to assist you in finding the methods or locations available for exchanging Foreign Currency to U. S. Dollars, cashing Travellers Checks or just getting cash from one of the areas many ATM machines.

ATM's  - Automatic Teller Machines

ATM's can be found at most major grocery stores as well as in one of the many 7-Eleven stores throughout the area.

Of these, Publix is probably one of the more dominant sources with its 'Presto! International Banking Network'. 

ATM's generally require withdrawal in increments of $20.00 with limits imposed as to the daily amount.

Fees can range anywhere from $1.50-$2.00 per transaction, with higher fees at the attractions and/or hotels.

Using an ATM for a cash advance from your credit card is also possible, but always make sure that you have your 'Pin' number when conducting your transaction. If you get the pin wrong, you will loose your card! In addition please also realize that even though you may have an available limit far beyond what you have requested, many credit card companies have imposed daily limits on these amounts.

Many a time, a frustrated vacationer has thought that they are either doing something wrong, or that the machine wasn't working. Where in actuality, they were simply trying to withdraw over the daily limit.

Banks

In the event of you requiring a larger amount, go to one of the local banks which are generally open from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. They will be able to perform a larger transaction on your behalf as long as the cash limits are available.

There are usually higher fees for doing this, which could be in the form of a 'fixed amount' or a percentage.

Foreign Currency exchange is available at most area banks and some hotels. Naturally your best rate of exchange will be at a local bank. There are exchange facilities at the Airport and at any of the four parks in Walt Disney World. There may be a limit of $50.00.

Travellers Checks

Travellers Checks are generally an accepted method of payment at most area businesses.

However, it is recommended that you carry these in the smaller denominations -  $20.00, $50.00 or $100.00. Larger checks, such as $500.00, are especially difficult to cash.

A Travellers Check must be counter-signed in front of the sales agent and must only be in U.S. currency.

Though policies will vary from business to business, Photo ID such as a Driver's License or Passport may also be required. So always have these with you.

Credit Cards

If you are visiting from abroad: You may get the best rate of exchange by using your Credit Card for almost all purchases.

Carry as little cash or Travellers Checks as think you can get by on.

Check rates before you leave home.
