    Hello, we are interested in planning a Disney trip August 2022 when our grand daughter turns 5. Do you still offer a layaway program? If so, how much down do you need to reserve? Thank you Also, do you offer birthday specials, her birthday is August 3rd.

    Hi Ginger,

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm thrilled to hear that you're planning a magical vacation for your granddaughter's birthday! There's no place more special to celebrate a 5th birthday than The Happiest Place on Earth!

    I'm happy to share that yes, it's possible to make payments as you go when you purchase a vacation package that includes a stay at one of the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort! A $200 deposit will be required to hold your reservation, then you'll be able to make payments online, and as long as you've paid in full at least 30 days before your arrival, you'll be good to go!

    As far as how to make her birthday one she'll never forget, you'll definitely want to stop by Guest Relations and pick up a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button. Cast Members (and even some Guests!) will love celebrating along with you. I'd also encourage you to look into making a reservation for a special birthday dinner, and of course, there's no better way to end a birthday dinner than with an adorable and delicious Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake! While there aren't currently any special offers related to birthdays, you could certainly keep an eye on the Offers & Discounts page for anything that could apply to your trip!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Ginger, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your visit. No matter how you choose to celebrate, I'm sending pixie dust that you have a truly magical vacation together!
