    Can you help me with booking and can you pay over time?

    Hi Kristen,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am excited to hEAR that you are planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Although we cannot actually book your vacation package, I can provide some tips. Take a look at our Disney Resorts Collection and decide which resort hotel might be best for your family. Once you have an idea of which resort hotels you might prefer, do some comparison pricing by searching vacation packages. Also check the Special Offers to see what discounts might be available on the dates of your visit. Decide what type of tickets and how many ticket days you need. Standard 1 Park Per Day Tickets might work or you could try Tickets with the Park Hopper® Option.

    You can book a vacation package online. To book, you can pay a deposit and then, you can pay over time as long as you have the balance paid by the due date. When you book, you should receive an email that includes your balance due date. Once booked, I suggest that you link that vacation package in your My Disney Experience account. After it's linked, you need to make Disney Park Pass system reservations for each day that you will have valid theme park admission.

    After making park pass reservations, make note of your advanced dining reservation window. Currently, that dining reservation window is 60-days in advance. Even though my girls are teenagers now, we still do a few character meals. Our absolute favorite is Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. We also adore Cinderella's Royal Table (Cinderella comes out to greet Guests) and Be Our Guest Restaurant (the Beast does a walk through and wave). Be sure to make at least a few dining reservations even if you plan to use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering.

    Kristen, I just gathered a little extra pixie dust to send to you as you plan! 

    Magic and memories,
