    If i want to plan a trip and make payments for the trip, how far in advantage should i plan

    Welcome to planDisney, Janelle!

    I am so happy to hear that you a planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort in the not too distant future. You can currently book a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package through December 31st, 2022. 

    Now, as far as when to book, I recommend that you do so as soon as possible! Booking early ensures that you are able to get your first choice of accommodations in the Disney Resorts Collection

    Did you know that you can book a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package with as little as $200 down? It's true!

    You can then pay as much, or as little, as you would like until your balance is due 30-days before your check-in date. Please note that payment terms and conditions are subject to change.  

    In terms of accommodations, I recommend Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. Here you will find fabulous food & dining options along with access to the Disney Skyliner

    If you are looking for a more luxurious trip to the islands, check out Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. This deluxe resort has the added bonus of offering access to the exclusive extended evening theme park hours

    Enjoy your planning adventure, Janelle!
