    Can I plan my entire vacation and am I allowed to make installment payments on the total package?

    Hi Kellie!

    Isn't it an INCREDIBLE feeling to have a Walt Disney World vacation on the calendar? As good as that feels, it's even better is to know that your package has been paid in advance. Somehow I sleep better in my amazing resort bed knowing that my vacation is not going to follow me home with a massive “souvenir” in the form of an outstanding bill. Far better to collect real souvenirs in the form of merchandise, I say! (Hmm, does this mean I can finally buy that new Dooney and Bourke purse?)

    With a Disney vacation package, Guests can pay as little or as much as they want between now and the final payment date. When it comes to partial payments towards your Walt Disney World vacation package, it is totally up to you how many and how often. The Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line has CastMembers waiting to assist you with payments. Meanwhile, this online link enables you to make your package final payment online. 

    So Kelli, for your Fall 2021 vacation, I say plan away! You can go ahead and map out your dose of daily fun for every single day of your vacation. You will want to have a My Disney Experience account to be able to link your park tickets and resort reservations. Since you booked a vacation package, your ticket eligibility is connected to your package travel dates. On My Disney Experience, you can select which park you want to visit every day of your vacation and make reservations for one park each day using the Disney Park Pass system. But here's a planDisney tip: be sure to build in some time to relax and unwind. My kids always loved the days when we would just hang out at our resort pool and take a breather from the parks, even if it is for just the afternoon. 

    Even more good news: the Park Hopper® option will be back in 2021. Squee! If you have this type of park tickets, you will be able to switch to a different park later in the day (subject to capacity limitations). You'll find more detailed information on up-to-date Park Hopper® hours and the rules about when you can park hop and the specific park hours. 

    Kellie, I hope you will consider DASHing back to planDisney with more great questions. We would be happy to work with you to plan a SUPER vacation!
