    I'm planning to take my 10 year old son to disney next year. When I purchase tickets and a resort, will I be able to make payments on it or will I have to pay in full at the time of purchase?

    Hi Jason!

    Thanks for your question!

    So nice to hear that you and your son will be taking a trip to Disney World next year, or what we like to call: "The Happiest Place on Earth!" :-)

    So if you're looking to purchase a Disney World Resort Vacation Package, you most certainly can make payments over time and not the entire amount in full! If you go to DisneyWorld.com and make your reservations online (or via phone at (407) 939-1936), you will be asked to place a minimum $200 deposit down to secure the vacation. After your reservation is secured, you can access your reservation anytime via My Disney Experience at DisneyWorld.com to make payments (you will need to register your account if you've never used My Disney Experience before). 

    You can then make payments via My Disney Experience in increments (a minimum $20 payment required at this writing). Just to note: The remaining balance of your vacation has to be paid 30 days before your arrival date.

    What I typically do when making my Disney vacation payments is I approach it like a bill. That means taking the total number of months between the time I made the reservation and the date the final payment is due, and dividing by that number. That then gives me a set monthly payment I know I must make each month up till the due date.

    I hope this helps you some. May you and your son have a magical time at Disney World!
