    I am planning a 10 day family Disney trip (1st time for all). I know that I can book and make payments, but how does the deposit work? Do I pay a set deposit or does it depend on the number of people or rooms being booked?

    Hi, Dara!

    When booking a Walt Disney World vacation, there are 2 different types of deposits.  If you book a "room only" reservation, you will need to place a deposit equal to one night's stay for each room booked.   The balance is due upon arrival at your vacation.

    If you book a complete "Magic Your Way" package with room/tickets/dining then you need to place a $200 deposit to hold your reservation.  The balance is due 45 days prior to your arrival.  If you have multiple parties booking, each reservation needs its own deposit. 

    Hope this helps!  Have fun booking your Walt Disney World vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
