    Hello, how far out can I book a trip? After I book, can I make payments or do I have to have it all paid upfront?

    Hi Eric,

    To me, planning is half the fun of a Disney vacation, so I'm thrilled to hear that you're dreaming about a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Whether you're using the handy dandy Disney Resort hotel comparison tool to find the perfect place to stay, checking out menus at some of the fantastic restaurants, or staying up-to-date with the latest Disney happenings on the Disney Parks Blog, I hope your planning puts some pixie dust into each of your days!

    Disney Resort hotels are currently available to book with check-in dates through December 31, 2022. I'm happy to let you know that, yes, according to the current Terms and Conditions, if you book a vacation package 31 days or more in advance, you'll simply need to pay a $200 deposit to hold your reservation and you'll be able to make payments whenever it's convenient for you. Your balance will be due 30 days before check-in. That makes it easy peasy to secure the perfect room now and start counting down the days until the magic and fun begin!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Eric, and please don't hesitate to come back and see us again as you're thinking through the details of your trip. I hope you have a truly magical vacation and all your Disney dreams come true!
