    If I pay the remaining lump sum owing for our trip, lets say today (though technically due in Sept), will our travel docs be sent immediately after payment or are we still waiting until a few weeks before our trip?

    Hi Katie,

    After final payment is made, documents are sent approximately 40 days prior to your Walt Disney World check in date.

    Since cancellations without penalty are possible until 44 days prior to check in, documents are not mailed  earlier. Any cancellations must take place at least 45 days in advance to avoid penalty.

    Therefore, there's no benefit to paying in advance except for your own peace of mind.

    I can appreciate your enthusiasm! I'm currently waiting for travel documents for my next WDW vacation too.
