    How far in advance would be best to book trip? We plan for August.

    Hi Maria!

    I would recommend booking your trip as soon as you are sure of what dates you would like to travel and which resort you would like to stay in. If you plan to book a package, you will need to put a $200 deposit down to confirm your reservation and you have until 45 days before you travel to pay the balance. You can also make changes to your reservation like adding the dining plan and changing your ticket options before that 45 day mark without penalty.

    I think it would be a good idea to book your vacation soon, and if you need to make changes in the next month or two, it wouldn't be a problem.

    If you are booking a resort room only, you will need to put down a deposit equal to one night's lodging plus tax. The balance will be due when you check in at your resort.

    I hope this helps! Have fun making plans for your vacation - it's all part of the fun!
