    Hi, this will be my first time going to Disney Land and I want to know how I can start a payment plan? or exactly where to go so I can start planning.

    Hey howdy hey, Maria! You’ve got a friend in me at planDisney!

    I’d love to help you start planning your vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth! Currently, Vacation Packages are available through December of 2022, but they typically open for the following year by the end of summer, usually by the end of August. So, I recommend continuing to check Disneyland.com, or checking in with planDisney next month to see if we have any updates.

    Disneyland Resort Vacation Packages offer the convenience of combining your hotel reservation with your theme-park tickets into one package. Plus, you can build your dream trip to fit within your family’s preferences and budget. These packages require an initial down payment, and then you can make additional payments as often as you like, so long as your final payment is completed at least 30 days before your arrival. Vacation Packages often include additional perks like Magical Extras Savings and other special discounts, too. 

    When creating your Vacation Package, you’ll be able to choose between staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel or a Good Neighbor Hotel. With a Disneyland Resort Hotel Vacation Package, you'll choose from three Disneyland Resort Hotels on property, including Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the Disneyland Hotel, and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. You simply can’t go wrong with any of these amazing hotels. Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is the closest hotel to the theme parks, and has an exclusive entrance into Disney California Adventure Park. The Disneyland Hotel is just a short walk away from the theme parks, and is adjacent to the Disneyland Monorail for a speedy ride into Disneyland Park. Lastly, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel is just past the Disneyland Hotel, and offers great views of Disney California Adventure Park, especially at night!

    The Good Neighbor Hotel Vacation Packages offer Disney-approved quality accommodations located near the Disneyland Resort, many within walking distance. With more than 50 hotels to choose from, you’re bound to find one that fits your family’s size, budget, and travel style.

    I hope this information helps, Maria! Please stop by with any additional questions as you continue planning your 2023 vacation… we’re all EARs!

    Happy planning,

Greetings from sunny California! I live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder (and now a Magic Key Passholder) for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids ages 5-10, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Learn More About Kristin
