    What is the best way to pay for tickets if you can’t pay for them all up front? Is there a payment option?

    Heigh-Ho Jennifer,

    Planning a visit to Walt Disney World is an exciting time and budgeting for your Walt Disney World vacation is important for many Guests. While I think it is a Practically Perfect idea to have a payment plan for tickets the truth is Guests ONLY purchasing Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets are required to make payment in full. I know this can be a lump sum of money but there are options to consider. Use an interest-free or low-interest credit card to make your purchase and set yourself up on a payment plan to pay it off. Or if you have time, consider a digital wallet app to save money. When it comes time to make purchases, such as tickets, spending money, airfare, etc.,  you have a stash of cash ready to put towards the payment. Also, many Guests will acquire Disney Giftcards, over a period of time, and use them towards their Walt Disney World tickets. I hope some of these suggestions are helpful budgeting ideas you can consider. 

    When the time comes to purchase your Walt Disney World tickets make sure to check the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar for the dates you are interested in visiting. Guests must make a Disney Pass reservation to enter any of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks and this is not guaranteed until you purchase your tickets and make your Disney Park Pass reservation. Set up your My Disney Experience account, prior to purchasing, this is your vacation hub. Here Guests can purchase and modify their Walt Disney World tickets and see, modify and cancel their Disney Park Pass reservations as well as much more. Download the app and become comfortable navigating this handy dandy tool, it will be used before and during your visit.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,
