    Online payment for room only reservation? I've had packages before and could see the package balance under "my plans" with link to make payment. Now i have a room only reservation and I do not see the balance or a link to make a payment.

    Hi, Linda! Welcome to planDisney! 

    As we're chatting here on the next-to-last day of August, your Labor Day weekend Walt Disney World Resort vacation is only a few days away! I'm sure you're getting excited for the last hurrah of summer, so let's make sure it's extra magical!

    In my family, we're locals and Annual Passholders, so a stay in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is what makes our visit into a true vacation. It also means we're usually booking room-only stays since we don't need tickets. At this time, there's no way to make an advance payment online, but using My Disney Experience and online check-in is the next best thing!

    When you first make a room-only Disney Resort hotel reservation, you provide a credit card that will be charged an initial deposit, with the balance due when you check in. You can save yourself a trip to the front desk by electing to use online check-in with your My Disney Experience account. You'll enter some details about your arrival along with a credit card to keep on file for charges, including the balance due on your room reservation. Once you've completed the online check-in process, your credit card will be automatically charged on your arrival day. Checking in online also saves you some time, since you'll get a text letting you know when your room is ready, meaning you can head straight to the parks and start the fun!

    If you'd prefer to go ahead and pay your balance now, you can do that by calling Guest Relations at the number listed for Disney Resort Hotel Reservations, and a Cast Member will help you get that payment applied. 

    Linda, I hope this helps you send off the summer in style! Have a magical vacation, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
