    WELCOME TO PLANDISNEY, APRIL! I can tell you're very excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation...and I would be too!

    Aladdin, otherwise known as Prince Ali, fabulous he, Ali Ababwa, once asked, "All this for a loaf of bread?" But I get it, April, not only is bread a vehicle to get more butter into my mouth, but it's sometimes the highlight of a meal. And while I don't usually turn down bread anywhere, I especially won't turn down Disney Vacation Bread. I sometimes dream about the Giraffe Bread at Jiko - The Cooking Place at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. It's not an exaggeration to say that it is not only the best bread on resort property, but probably the best bread I've ever eaten. Period. April, I think we both need a shirt that simply says "Disney Vacation Bread." Let's make that happen for our next vacations, shall we?

    If you are looking to make monthly payments toward your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, please note that at this time, such a thing does not exist. However, when you book a vacation package, which includes both theme park tickets and a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel reservation, more than 30 days out, you are required to put down a deposit and the rest is due 30 days before your arrival date. You can make regular (or as regular as you'd like) payments toward your vacation leading up to your trip. To do this, simply log in to your My Disney Experience account after you've booked the trip, go to "My Plans," and find your reservation. There should be an option to make a payment. This is where you can begin to pay down your balance. If the payment option is hiding, which it sometimes does, you can try to log out and log back in or simply call the resort and a friendly Cast Member would be happy to take your payment!

    In case "Disney Vacation Bread" is secret code for "Disney Vacation Club" (I'm all about a good mystery, so well done, April), let's just make sure we cover how you can pay your Annual Dues automatically each month. If you're a Disney Vacation Club member and would like to set up monthly automatic payments for your Annual Dues, simply visit the Dues Auto-Pay payment page to enroll. Once you've successfully enrolled, your account will automatically be debited on either the 1st or 15th of each month. This is a great way to avoid paying those dues all at once!

    April, I hope you have a carb-tastically magical vacation (maybe that should be on the shirt too?)! If you have any other questions about bread, payment plans, annual dues, or anything else related to the Most Magical Place on Earth, please reach out directly to me.

    Just a little crust of bread,

    P.S. In case you couldn't tell, while Cinderella's Fairy Godmother was satisfied with a crust of bread or a cup of milk, I'd definitely prefer more than just the crust. And you can hold the cup of milk. Please and thank you.
