    Hi there! We are considering doing a Disney vacation next year. Looked up some initial prices and was wondering what kind of payment options there are?

    Hi Anne,

    Thank you for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Spring at Walt Disney World Resort is a beautiful time to visit, especially during Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

    We all know a Disney vacation can be a little tough on our budgets. But there a few ways to save some Disney Dollars and pay for your vacation. First, you want to book a vacation package which includes a stay at a Disney Resort Hotel and Theme Park Tickets. And the benefits are out of this world! At this time, these packages only require a $200 deposit and the balance will be due 30 days before arrival. And even though there is no payment plan available today, you can make partial payments at any time before the due date.

    Now with regards to savings, Mickey always tries to help us with some incredible Special Offers, such as discounts on the room portion of your stay, discounted Theme Park Tickets or even a free Dining Plan. These offers vary throughout the year, so you may want to keep coming back to check for new ones. You can also use Disney Gift Cards to pay for part or all of your vacation, and you can get them at a slight discount at places like Sam's Club or BJ's. Finally, the Disney Rewards Visa Cards from Chase give you some awesome perks, but also Disney Rewards Dollars you can use to pay off your vacation. I use my Disney Premier Visa Card for all purchases and those rewards dollars add up pretty fast!

    One last tip: another thing to consider is a Dining Plan. It is a great way to prepay for your meals and not have to worry about bills when you come back home. Happy planning!
