    Can I plan a Disney world package a year ahead of time and make payment’s

    Hey there, John!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question about Walt Disney World Resort vacation packages! It sounds like you're thinking about booking a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth - how exciting! My friends and I here at planDisney are here to help. I, too, like to book my vacations as far out as possible, not only to give myself time to save for the occasion but also to extend the planning fun!

    I am happy to inform you that Walt Disney World Resort vacation packages are typically released in the summertime for the following calendar year, so you may be able to book your vacation package a year in advance! Around June/July 2023, I'd recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements about 2024 vacation packages.

    Once you are ready to book your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package, you'll first select your Disney Resort hotel. Then, you'll have the option to add theme park tickets to your cart to magically transform your reservation into a vacation package! Once you've selected the theme park ticket options you'd like, you'll have the choice of adding Memory Maker and/or ground transportation to your vacation package. Upon checkout, you'll owe a deposit of $200, with the remaining balance due one month before your check-in date.

    You can easily make payments on your vacation package via My Disney Experience! Simply locate your reservation details on the My Plans screen, and the Remaining Balance will be displayed. Next to the balance displayed, you'll see a link to Make a Payment. This way, you can make payments as you are comfortable. I love that booking a Disney vacation in this manner provides ample time to save for your trip!

    John, I hope that you find this information useful in booking your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package. Please feel free to come back to planDisney with any additional questions you may have during your vacation planning process! Wishing you a most magical trip!

    See ya real soon,
