    My boyfriend and I are planning on taking a WDW vacation probably near the end of August, being in college, our options are quite limited. If I booked online now, could we pay as we go along, or should we wait until we can pay all of the money at once?

    The end of August is a nice time to visit as many children around the United States have returned to school. (My son returns in early August.)

    It will still be very hot in Florida so plan accordingly.

    If you book your vacation online now, you'll only need to place a deposit. And you can either save the funds for the remaining balance and pay it off when due or apply payments when you can to your reservation.

    For a vacation package which includes your room and tickets, you'll need to provide a $200 deposit. The balance will be due 45 days before your Walt Disney World arrival date.

    If you book a room only reservation, you'll only need to put down a deposit equal to the cost of one room night plus tax. The balance would be due at Check In.

    Tickets can be ordered separately. A good place to order them at a discount is I've used them myself a couple of times!

    Let me know if I can help any further. The first time my husband and I visited WDW together was while we were dating in college!
