    When making a hotel package reservation how much of a deposit is required and when is final payment made? Is final payment made at time of arrival?

    Hello there, Susan! Welcome to planDisney, and thank you so much for stopping by to see us with your question! 

    How exciting to hear that you will soon be reserving a trip to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth! When the time comes to book your vacation, as long as you book a Disney Vacation Package, you will only need to pay a $200 deposit to secure your booking! You will then have until 30 days before the first day of your trip to pay the entire balance. You may also call Disney Reservations directly and make payments as you desire at any point prior to your reservation balance due date. 

    Susan, I hope that this information helps you make your Disney dreams come true for yourself and your loved ones. Before your vacation, make sure you download the My Disney Experience Mobile App and familiarize yourself with it, as well as linking your family members to your account. Also, make sure you check out the latest recommendations and procedures since park reopening, as you will notice that there are some changes made recently to keep all Guests and Cast Members safe and healthy. Things may look and feel a little different, but Walt Disney World is ready to welcome Guests back to the magic! However, Walt Disney World understands that not everyone may be ready to do so on the same timeline. Therefore there are lenient cancellation and modification policies in place for anyone who needs to make changes to their plans! This and many other policies currently in place are outlined on the Experience Updates pages. I recommend that you have a look around to learn more about what incredible things await you during your next visit! Meanwhile, know that we are always here to answer any question and help in any way we can! 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
