    Does Disney offer layaway plans with no credit check and if so how do you go about getting it started?

    Hi, Jennifer!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so glad to hEAR that you're looking into planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  There are so many new and exciting things coming soon to the Walt Disney World Resort, so this is a great time to plan a visit!

    While the Walt Disney World Resort does not offer a layaway plan per se, it is certainly possible to spread out the payments on your vacation package in order to help you budget for your trip.  When you book your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package, you will be required to pay a deposit.  The amount of this deposit varies based upon the total cost of your trip.  The remaining balance of your vacation package will be due at a later date, usually about a month prior to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel check-in date.  However, you may choose to make additional payments at your own discretion before your balance is due.  

    If you wish to give yourself additional time to budget for your vacation, it is possible to book a Walt Disney World Resort vacation quite far in advance.  Although 2020 vacation packages are not currently available for booking, based on what we've seen during previous years, I would expect them to become available at any time now.  Be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog to hear all the latest Walt Disney World Resort news, including when prices for 2020 vacation packages are released.

    Planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation far in advance not only gives you time to spread out your payments, but it also provides you with added time to do some vacation resEARch.  You will have time to figure out what your must-do experiences are, and you'll have plenty of time to make your dining reservations and FastPass+ selections.  There are some great online vacation planning resources available.  Be sure to check those out, and please visit us again if you have any additional questions.

    Have a magical day!
