    I would like to book a vacation but don’t have a credit card. So would I have to pay for everything upfront or can’t I pay on it until it’s paid for or what

    Welcome, Mary to planDisney! We are so glad you are here and want to begin planning a pixie-dusted-filled vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! 3 chEARS to you! I am happy to help you begin, planning vacations to Walt Disney World to me is the beginning of the magic you will experience, and I can't wait for you to experience it too!

    Mary, to pay for vacations, Disney accepts various forms of payment. First, make a Disney account on the My Disney Experience app, or on your computer. From there, click on the "profile" link on the My Disney Experience tab, and go to the "payment methods" section. You can add a Disney Visa Card, Disney gift card, or major credit card. When you initially book your vacation, you only need a $200 deposit at reservation. You have until 30 days before your scheduled arrival date to finalize your payments. However, you decide to pay is up to you. Lots of people pay with Disney gift cards as an option, and if you go this route, I highly suggest you consolidate your gift cards to one to make payments easier. You can only use a debit card if you run it as "credit". There are multiple ATMs throughout Walt Disney World if you need cash at any time.

    Mary, I hope all of this information helps! You can always ask me questions again if you need help with anything else. Happy planning!
