    I want to book a disney vacation and be paying on it in advance

    Hi Vicki,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Let's celebrate the fact that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    To book a trip, you may do so online or by contacting a Cast Member by phone. You can search vacation packages online, do some comparison pricing, and then book that vacation package online by paying a deposit. Once you pay the deposit, you can pay the remaining balance over time until your final payment due date. Just log into My Disney Experience, click on My Plans, and then scroll to find your reservation details. Near that reservation information, you should see a link to Make a Payment. If you do not already have a My Disney Experience account, create one now so that when you make a reservation, you can use the confirmation number to link that reservation to your My Disney Experience account. 

    Once you have a confirmation number, log into your My Disney Experience account, click on My Plans, and then click on Add More Plans. From there, click on Link Reservations and Purchases. After your vacation package is linked, you will need to make Disney Park Pass system reservations for everyone in your party. Also, if your family or friends are anything like mine, they like to eat. So, we always make advanced dining reservations to ward off the hunger grumpiness. Currently, the dining reservation window is 60-days prior to arrival.

    Vicki, I am delighted to see that you are planning to visit in the spring. Spring is a delightful time of year to visit! We love to explore the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival during this time of year. The topiaries are super cute and the special food options are yummy! Happy planning!

    Magic and memories,
