    I'm planning on visiting for my 50th in a few years. I"m wondering is does Disney have a planning/ trip account that I can create and pay into over the next few years to eventually pay for my trip so I don't have to try doing all at once?

    Hi Nick! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney.

    We love celebrating at Disneyland Resort. Birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries are all made extra special in the Happiest Place on Earth. It helps ensure it's a party we never forget. I think you'll have a fantastic time marking the big day in the parks!

    If you're looking for an option to make payments on a Disneyland Resort vacation, you've got a great option with a Disneyland Resort Hotel Vacation Package. These Vacation Packages offer Guests increased value and perks, including Early Entry to the parks. Our family especially loves that option. We're early risers and we've found we can do a lot during that Early Entry period. Also, you can make your payments towards your stay on your schedule in the amount you prefer until the full payment is due 30 days before your arrival, which is a really nice budgeting benefit.

    Plus, the Disneyland Resort Hotels immerse you in Disney theming, offer delicious dining options, and can't be beaten with their convenient access to the parks. They're all great choices, but my family really enjoys Disneyland Hotel. It's a classic! We love the dining choices and love being able to hop on the Disneyland Monorail right outside the hotel to ride into the heart of Tomorrowland in Disneyland Park.

    However, you won't be able to book and make those payments years in advance. Currently, Vacation Packages are available to be made for all of 2024. Typically, packages for the next year open in the late summer. You also can't book dining, make theme park reservations, or reserve extras years out. But you can explore the Disneyland Resort website and begin to dream of your plans. When the booking windows open, you'll be ready to go! Currently, dining and experiences are open 60 days out and theme park reservations are available to book 120 days out. This is subject to change.

    One suggestion I'd make for your milestone birthday is to book a special meal. We love Carthay Circle Restaurant on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park and Napa Rose in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa for a really elegant meal, while Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park is an iconic, immersive choice, where you can dine in perpetual twilight while boats drift by. Some dining locations offer the option of adding a yummy Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake too!

    Have a magical day.
