    Deposit for hotel

    Hiya MarKeria!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for bringing your question our way.

    I love talking about all things related to Walt Disney World Resort with Guests! I hope you’re getting excited about your upcoming vacation. It’s going to be so magical!

    MarKeria, while booking your room-only reservation or your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package (which includes room and theme park tickets), you will need to put a deposit down.

    For Vacation Packages, with both theme park tickets and a Disney Resorts Collection hotel stay, Guests are required to put down a deposit (pricing is subject to change), and from there, you can make payments at your own pace as long as the final payment is made 30 days before your arrival.

    You can make these payments via your My Disney Experience account. To do this, please log into your account, hover over the My Disney Experience logo in the top right corner, and select My Plans from the drop-down menu. Next, locate your upcoming reservation, and select Make a Payment to pay towards your remaining vacation balance. 

    If you have a room-only reservation, you will be required to put down a deposit for the first night’s stay. However, the option to pay this balance isn’t available on your My Disney Experience account. If you already booked your room-only reservation, you can find its remaining balance by locating the confirmation email sent to you when you booked your vacation. The email should include how much you have paid towards your deposit and the amount of your remaining balance. Usually, with room-only reservations, you can pay off your remaining balance upon arrival at your Disney Resort hotel. 

    Of course, if you have any further questions about your reservation, please feel free to call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations, and a friendly Cast Member will be happy to look into your account and help you. 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, MarKeria!
