    I want to plan our Disney trip but is there a way for non California residents to pay monthly for the tickets?

    Hello, dear Toni! 

    Welcome to planDisney! If you're in the mood for some magical planning, you're in the right place! 

    If you don't live in California and you're planning on buying regular theme park tickets (instead of Magic Key Passes), my best tip is to pace your payments by purchasing Disney Gift Cards. You can buy Disney Gift Cards monthly at your retailer of choice (I always buy mine where I buy my groceries) and use them all to buy your tickets when the time comes. While this isn't technically a monthly payments plan, it works really well for our family.

    After buying your gift cards, you can use the Disney Gift Cards website to combine them into fewer cards so that it's easier to manage your funds. 

    This budgeting method is useful for tickets, hotel reservations, souvenirs, and food, and it's also a fantastic option to keep the whole family within a specific budget. How does it sound?

    After buying your tickets, don't forget to make your theme park reservations and secure a special dining reservation to celebrate this adventure.

    I hope these tips help you plan for the most amazing times at the Disneyland Resort, dear Toni. If you need advice on where to eat and how to make the most of your time, don't hesitate to come back. We'll be here!

    May the magic be with you,
