    If I book hotel and tickets and pay the deposit, can we immediately plan/choose our parks per day? Or do we have to pay the whole amount in full first?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Brianna. I'm so excited you stopped by and even more excited to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation this October! You're sure to Fall into magic!

      You ask an excellent question. I'm pleased to tell you that when you book a Walt Disney World vacation package, you may certainly begin booking your Theme Park Reservations, even if you've only paid the deposit on the package. Isn't that great? The moment you book your vacation package, go ahead and make your Theme Park Reservations via the Disney Park Pass System. The sooner you make those reservations, the better. You can then use your My Disney Experience account to manage your Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation, make your dining reservations, purchase add-ons like Memory Maker, and more!

      I recommend purchasing event tickets for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for your upcoming stay. It's frightfully fun! Guests with tickets for this special event may enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4:00 PM on the valid day of their ticket. Rather than purchasing an additional Theme Park Ticket for the day of the event, I recommend sleeping in and having a relaxing day at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel so you're well-rested for a spooktacular evening at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

     I hope this was helpful, Brianna. Please visit us again soon with any more questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We'd love to help you plan a magical stay!
