Disposable cell phone

I'm a Canadian planning a trip to the Disney World this fall. My current cell phone has ridiculous roaming rates, so I won't be bringing it with me. I live very close to the border, and thought I would go over the border and buy a cheap prepaid phone a few weeks before my trip, so that I can activate it, and give the number out to people before I go. Is this a good idea?

How do these things work? Once I purchase the phone, do I then have to purchase minutes too, or will the phone come with some small amount of minutes? Will I have any trouble activating the phone by virtue of not having a US address? Will I be required to give a credit card number to activate the phone?
Any other things I should beware of, or stuff I need to know?
