    Does Disney offer a plan to where you can have your trip paid for over the course of the year so by the time you arrive everything is paid for? We would be staying at the wilderness Lodge.

    Hiya Chelcianna! Welcome to planDisney. It’s always great to help a fellow New Yorker!

    If you couldn't tell from our name, my fellow panelists and I love to plan all things Disney, and it likely comes as no surprise that we like to get the planning party started as early as possible. So, I’m so excited to hear you’re looking to hit the ground running and start putting together a fabulous Walt Disney World Resort vacation for your family. I just know you will have the most special time, so let’s get to it!

    When booking a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, only a $200 deposit is required at the time of booking, and final payment isn’t required until 30 days before your scheduled check-in. So, while there is no official payment plan, you can make incremental payments on your vacation in the months leading up to your trip and can effectively use this method to act as a payment plan for your vacation. I find this helps make it so much easier for me to budget and afford to take (yet another) trip because I can simply chip away at my balance leading up to the vacation rather than having to pay everything all at once! Pretty great, right?

    Plus, making a payment to your vacation really is as easy as can be. Just log into your My Disney Experience account from the Walt Disney World website. Then, hover over the My Disney Experience logo in the upper right corner, and click on "My Plans." From there, scroll down to the "My Plans, Reservations, and Tickets" section, and you should see a blue link that reads "Make a Payment." Once you click on the link, you can follow the prompts to make your payment, and you are all set! If you don't see this link for any reason, don't fret! You can give the helpful Cast Members on the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations team a call at (407) 939-1936, and they will be happy to help you!

    I hope my answer has been helpful to you! We here at planDisney love to help our fellow Guests make the most of their Walt Disney World Vacation, so please visit us again if you have any other questions!

    Happy planning!
