    How do I make the down payment for my Disney vacation

    Hi Joe,

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    I am so happy to hEAR that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! First, make sure that you have created a My Disney Experience account. If you need to book a vacation package, you can do so by paying your deposit online or you can contact a Cast Member by phone.

    Once you make the reservation, you should receive a confirmation number. Using that confirmation number, you can link your vacation package in My Disney Experience. Once that vacation package is linked, check the theme park reservation availability calendar and then make Disney Park Pass system reservations. Once you have that trip linked in My Disney Experience, you should be able to make additional payments online. Just check My Plans, scroll down looking for your vacation package reservation, and once you see it, you should see a link that says Make a Payment.

    As you get 60-days prior to your trip, I highly recommend that you make advanced dining reservations. These are a must-do for my family. Each trip we make reservations at our favorite restaurants and we add in a few new ones. By far, my favorite dining experience is dining atop Disney's Contemporary Resort at California Grill. On our last trip, we dined at Narcoossee's for the first time and it was lovely.

    Joe, you are visiting at my family's favorite time of year. I do hope that you will convince your superhero crew to wear matching gear. We are so excited to welcome you for an Incredible Disney visit!

    Magic and memories,
