    Do you offer payment plans? How far in advance can you book hotel/park?

    Greetings, Erin!

    Welcome to planDisney. You ask some great questions! Let's start with how far in advance you can book, and then we can go over the payment options. 

    Walt Disney World vacation packages can currently be booked through January of 2023. Are you looking for dates a little farther out? Hakuna Matata. Vacation packages for the remainder of 2023 will be released later this year. If you are looking to get a head start on booking your next adventure, you can book a Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel room up to 499 days in advance. This is a great option if there is a specific resort or hotel room that is a must-stay for you and your travel party. Once vacation packages become available you can modify your reservation to become a package. Theme park tickets are also currently available for purchase through December 2022.

    Walt Disney World does not offer a payment plan option, but depending on how far in advance you are booking, I do have a recommendation. When booking a vacation package more than 30 days out, you will only need to make a $200 deposit to secure your reservation. You can then make payments on the balance at your leisure until the final payment is due at that 30-day mark. This is a great option for advanced planning. I am a huge fan of paying the deposit and then dividing the remaining balance by the number of months until my travel date. I then make payments monthly, to avoid one large payment toward the end of my planning. 

    Erin, there has never been a better time to visit Walt Disney World. There are new attractions like Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and featured nighttime spectaculars including Disney Enchantment. And all four theme parks are currently in the middle of The World's Most Magical Celebration. This 50th anniversary has brought EARidescent excitement and beauty in so many magical ways. It's worth making a trip to experience the festivities!

    I hope that we'll see ya real soon!
