    Can I plan a trip and make payments

    Hiya, Chris! Welcome to planDisney!

    You've come to the right place with your question – there's nothing quite like the excitement of planning a magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort! From selecting just the right Disney Resorts Collection hotel to making payments on your vacation package, I'm here to help. Let's get started!

    Chris, it looks like you're looking to plan a trip for May of next year. That's so exciting! At the time of this writing, vacation packages for 2024 haven't been released yet. Though we don't know exactly when they'll be available to book, my best guess would be in late spring or early summer of this year. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, which always seems to announce these exciting updates first!

    When you do get to book your vacation package, which involves theme park tickets and a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will pay a deposit to make your reservation. This deposit is fully refundable up until 30 days prior to your check-in date, which is also the date your final payment must be made. With that being said, between the time you make your reservation deposit and the date your final payment is due, you're welcome to make any additional payments along the way. You can do this on the My Plans page in your My Disney Experience account. When I book my trips to Walt Disney World Resort, I like to pay a little toward my trip each month, making my final payment feel as easy as bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!

    As you continue dreaming about your magical plans, I'd suggest that you tune in to the planDisney Podcast all about selecting your next Disney Resort! And if this is your first time visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth, there's even a podcast all about tips for your first visit to Walt Disney World Resort
