    I am planning on booking our DW vacation this month. Will my credit card be charged the entire amount or just a deposite amount?

    Hi Landra!

    When booking a travel package through Walt Disney Travel Company, your deposit of $200.00 is due within 7 days of reserving your package.  However, if you book a package on-line then the deposit is required at the time of booking.  The remainder is due 45 days prior to check-in.  If it is less than 45 days before you check-in, then you have to pay the full amount right away.  Remember, you can change or cancel your reservation without penalty up until 45 days .

    If you book a "room only" reservation through the Walt Disney Travel Company, you must pay one night's room rate as a deposit with final payment of the remainder due at check-in.  If you book on-line, full payment is required if reserving within 45 days of check-in.  You can change or cancel your reservation without penalty up until 5 days prior to check-in if you called; 6 days if you booked on-line. 

    Remember that Disney reserves the right to changes these policies at any time.  You can reach the Walt Disney Reservations Center at (407) W-DISNEY.  You can also work with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.  They are travel agents specializing in Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, and Adventures by Disney.
