    I need to pay my Disney world final payment by October 3, 2022. However, my reservations are for November 2, 2022. It says I have to check in in order to make my final payment. Am I supposed to “check in”that far in advance? Help!

    Hiya Linda!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad that you decided to stay at a Disney Resort hotel, as that is a must-do in my book for all Disney vacations. Indeed, there is nothing quite like getting on your Resort bus at the end of a long day or having Mickey waffles for breakfast! 

    If you made a room-only reservation, your final payment would be due at check-in, while package reservations have their final payment due 30 days before your reservation. If you have a package reservation, which sounds likely, you can pay your remaining balance by logging into your My Disney Experience account and going to the "My Plans" section. There, you should have a "Make a Payment" option next to your reservation in the Daily Itinerary section, but if you do not see that option, you can also make your final payment by calling (407) 560-2428

    Did you know that Disney likes to "go big or go home" when it comes to the Holiday season? Indeed, the night between Halloween and November 1st is when some of the Disney parks get their Holiday decorations and some festive offerings! For example, the first Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will be held on November 8th, 2022, and includes a festive fireworks show, a parade, special treats and merchandise, entertainment and even overlays over your favourite attractions. The Halloween and Christmas parties at Magic Kingdom Park are some of my favourite offerings at the Walt Disney World Resort. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to add extra pixie dust to their vacation! Be sure to get your tickets quickly, however, as some nights are already sold out! 

    I hope this was helpful, Linda, and that you will have the most wonderful time on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. I always love getting to spread some Holiday chEAR! 

    Have a happy, merry, holly jolly day,
