    We are planning a trip for April 2013 and I was wondering what is the latest I can book our vacation package? I am to receive a bonus at work which will pay for the trip in early March but i am not sure it will be in to pay by the 45 day deadline.

    Hi Tabitha,

    You can book Walt Disney World vacation packages up until just a few days before your arrival as long as rooms are still available at the location you desire.  I do not necessarily advise you to wait until the last minute though, particularly if you have your heart set on staying at a specific resort. 

    What you might want to do instead is to book your reservation now and then wait until the last acceptable day to pay your balance.  If you put that remaining balance on a credit card, you will have at least another month to pay off that bill.  Perhaps that would provide enough time for your bonus to arrive.  I always like to pay for my Disney vacation packages with my Disney Visa from Chase because then I get 1% of my package value back in Disney dollars which I then use for souvenirs during the trip. 

    Wishing you an enjoyable countdown to your April trip!
