    I want to plan a trip to Disney World for my family on October of 2024. Is there a payment plan we can set up or a way that we can choose a different hotel than we stayed at last we visited. I want to make it special for my wife and my son.

    Hiya Troy,

    A huge Texas-sized welcome to planDisney! Troy, I love that you want to make our next Walt Disney World Resort visit magical for your family. When my family and I visit, we always strive to do the same, so I am honored to help you however I can.

    For me, the start of any memorable vacation is your accommodations. I still remember the very first vacation that we stayed in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. We dreamed of staying there, seeing Magic Kingdom Park from our room, and enjoying DOLE Whip on our little balcony. Unfortunately, it was just never in our budget. That was until we learned about Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Packages. With a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package, you simultaneously make your reservation for Theme Park tickets and resort hotel, combining them into one bundle. It is so game-changing that you can make payments towards your vacation package over time (the final payment is due 30 days before your arrival). This enabled us to select the resort hotel we had always dreamed of and make payments that fit our lives. We also love that by the time we arrive at the Most Magical Place on Earth, the bulk of our spending has already happened, and we can enjoy our vacation without frequently checking our mobile credit card balance.

    I hope this was helpful, Troy! Before I let you go, I wanted to share my second tip for making your vacation exceptional – dining! When you book a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package, you can also add on a dining plan, enabling you to pay ahead for your meals during your visit. I love that you can again pay ahead of your visit (which is excellent for budgeting) and dine at locations you may bypass due to budget. If you would like to talk more about dining (it is a massive passion of mine) or Vacation Packages, please come back and see me. I’d be happy to help you with your goal of making a special trip for your wife and son.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
