    How much is the hotel deposit when you reserve online? I'd just like to make sure to budget appropriately and I can't find the cost. We would be booking for two nights.

    Hello, Julie!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am thrilled to read that you are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  Looks like 2017 is off to a great start, so let's get started.

    If you are just planning to book a room with no tickets, you will be required to pay the first night's stay plus tax.  However, if you plan to book your resort room as a package which will include park tickets, a $200 deposit is required if your check-in date is outside of 30 days.  You can then choose how to make payments whether it be weekly, biweekly or monthly.  It will need to be paid in full 30 days prior to your arrival. Needless to say if you are booking a package within the 30 day window, you need to be prepared to pay your full balance.  

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Since you are looking to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort, I highly recommend adding the Disney Dining Plan.  The DDP is a great way to keep your food budget in check and there are so many dining experiences to choose from.  It really is a great way to save.

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
