    Hey there. Im planning my first trip to Disney in August 2016. I would like to know when is the minimum time for booking and pay the hotel disney resort?

    Hi, Katherine!

    Booking a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is a very easy process. The difficulty can be deciding which resort is best for your family but that's not such a bad problem to have!

    Any reservations made 31 days or more prior to the date that you plan to arrive, guests must make a $200 deposit. If you book after the 31 day requirement, the entire amount of the vacation package must be paid when you book. The remaining balance must be paid within 30 days of your arrival. 

    Currently, Disney vacations can be booked until December 2016 and future dates into 2017 should be available within the next few weeks. 

    Katherine, I hope that your first Disney vacation is as magical as mine was! If you have more questions, please visit with us again!

    Wishing you magic and pixie dust!
