    We are looking to plan a trip to Disney and want to know how to schedule a trip and make payments on them.

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel! How exciting that you're thinking of scheduling a trip to Walt Disney World! Planning ahead for your vacation is a great idea & makes the budgeting so much less stressful.

    First, visit the Walt Disney World website to review the Magic Your Way Vacation Package options. Choose the resort, park ticket & meal plan that best suits your personal needs and budget. Check for any applicable Special Offers that may fit your plans. Once you've decided, simply book your vacation online with a $200 deposit to reserve your package. It's that simple!

    During your booking, you'll have created an online profile & can then log in as often as you wish to make payments, provided your payment is a minimum of $20 per transaction. After booking, you'll see the date by which your vacation must be paid in full. I recommend backtracking from that date to the current date, and dividing your payments over that number of weeks. Then you can choose to log in and make weekly, bi-monthly or monthly payments with the peace of mind that you'll be paid in full by your vacation package due date. I usually set an automatic reminder in my cell phone or computer calendar to log into my online banking, transfer cash to my credit or debit card, then make my payment on the Walt Disney World site!

    If you need to make changes to your package, or if a special offer is advertised that you want to take advantage of after you've already booked, simply call a Disney Cast Member for assistance at (407) 939-7675. Have your confirmation number handy when you call.

    Have fun planning Jennifer - and don't hesitate to visit me again if I can provide you with any further assistance!
