    hi, I have been looking online to book a trip in October. When I get to the check out page, it says a deposit of $200.00 is required. I am wondering when the rest would need to paid by and also how long before arrival do I have to cancel and get my dp bk

    Hi Jammie!

    I'm assuming you booked a package, which includes room and tickets.  Final payment of the entire remainder is due 45 days prior to check-in.  If you're booking less than 45 days in advance, then you have to pay in full right away.

    You can change or cancel your reservation without penalty up until 45 days in advance.  If you cancel less than 44 days in advance, there is a cancellation fee of $200.00.

    Another option is to go with a room only reservation.  In that case, final payment is due at check-in and you can change or cancel your reservation without penalty up until 5 days prior to check-in.  However, with a room only reservation, you would have to purchase tickets separately and you would not be eligible for a Disney Dining Plan.  That said, this is how I usually go to Walt Disney World.

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
