    Good afternoon I wanted to find out how to put a Disney world trip on layaway with a deposit and make payments until it's paid off.

    Hi Christal!

    I am happy to see you planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Although there is not an official layaway program, you can pay a deposit on a vacation package and then make payments up until the date that your vacation must be paid in full. The beauty of this process is that you can decide how much you pay at any given time before the balance must be paid in full. 

    I prefer to book our vacation packages online. Before doing so, make sure that you have a My Disney Experience account. Once you click on that vacation package link, click on Book your Walt Disney World Vacation today. Once you click on that link, you can select your dates and price your vacation at different Disney Resorts Collection hotels. When you make your final selection and pay the deposit, make sure to use the confirmation number to link that vacation package to your My Disney Experience account.

    Once your vacation package is linked in My Disney Experience, you should be able to log into your account and see that reservation in My Plans. Next to the reservation details, you should see a link to Make a Payment. Use that link to make payments. If you cannot get your vacation package linked in My Disney Experience, contact a Cast Member in Website Support by phone to get assistance with linking your reservation.

    I am glad to see you planning well in advance! After you make the reservation, be sure to keep an eye on the Special Offers to see if any discounts are released that apply to the dates of your visit. Start reviewing the restaurant list to decide on the dining experiences you would like to have. And get prepared to make advanced dining reservations when your dining reservation window opens.

    Christal, I am sending lots of pixie dust your way trusting that you will get a vacation package reserved. Happy planning!

    Magic and memories,
