    Hi - I'm confused about making a payment online for my Disney trip in the summer. How do I make a payment online? THanks Mary

    Hi Mary,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting to know that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! First things first, make sure that you have a My Disney Experience account and that your vacation package is linked in My Disney Experience. To link it, log into My Disney Experience, click on My Plans, scroll down, and then click on the plus sign to Add More Plans. Then click on Link Reservations and Purchases and use the vacation package confirmation number to link it.

    Once you have your vacation package linked, you should be able to see a link to Make A Payment. If you do not see the option to Make A Payment, you can contact a Cast Member by phone for assistance. We love making payments online. Just make sure to have your package paid in full by the deadline. And remember that if you booked through a third-party vendor, you would need to pay through that vendor.

    As it gets closer to the dates of your visit, remember to make advanced dining reservations 60-days prior to arrival. On our most recent trip, we dined at several of our favorite restaurants including Cinderella's Royal Table and Be Our Guest Restaurant. One of our most relaxing meals was lunch at Rose & Crown Dining Room. We had an 11:30 a.m. lunch reservation and were able to dine on the outdoor patio.

    Remember to have the My Disney Experience Mobile App downloaded. We also used Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering and Mobile Dine Check-in on our last visit. We loved being able to request a window table at select restaurants when checking in for a dining reservation on the mobile app. 

    Mary, I am sending a little extra pixie dust trusting that you are able to start making your payments online. Time is short, so start planning those dining reservations. Then, at the 60-day mark, ready, set, go!

    Magic and memories,
