    Do I have to pay right away when I book my vacation? Or is it possible to pay the day me and my family check in. We will be going during December.And I want to make sure I reserve the rooms.

    Hello Ricardo!  When you book a vacation with Disney, there is a deposit that is due which usually equals one night's stay.  Then, depending on what type of reservation you have will determine when the balance will be due.  For example, vacation packages typically require payment in full 45 days prior to your arrival date, whereas if you have a room only reservation, you can pay the balance upon check-in.

    When making a reservation, before you make the final commitment, you may want to read the terms and conditions carefully to make sure it is something you can accept.  Please also read cancellation policies as they can be different for room only vs. vacation packages as well.

    I hope your December vacation is truly magical - it's my favorite time to visit Disney!  Diane
