    we are planning a trip to wdw in october 2012 and i was wondering if there was a way we can start paying on this so that we will have everything paid for by that time gets here any suggestions

    Hi Timothy!

    Absolutely! Planning as far in advance as possible is the best way to ensure that you stick to your budget and enjoy a stress & worry free time at Walt Disney World!

    Prepare your own quotes online by visiting the Planning Center on the Walt Disney World website and choose the resort, park ticket & meal plan that best suits your personal needs and budget. Once you've decided, simply book your vacation online with a $200 deposit to reserve your Magic Your Way Vacation Package. It's that simple! Checking for any applicable Special Offers is a great place to start too.

    By doing so, you'll have created an online profile and you can log in as often as you wish to make small payments or larger payments any time you wish, provided payment is a minimum of $20 per transaction.
    After you've created your reservation, you'll see a date by which your vacation must be paid in full. I recommend backtracking from that date to the current date, and dividing your payments over that number of weeks. Then you can choose to log in and pay weekly, bi-monthly or monthly and have the peace of mind that you'll be paid in full by your vacation package due date. I usually set an automatic reminder in my cell phone calendar and then log in to my online banking to transfer cash to my credit or debit card, then make my weekly payment on the Walt Disney World site!

    If you decide you want to make changes to your dates, park tickets, meal plan, resort or if a special offer is advertised that you want to take advantage of after you've already booked, simply call a Disney Cast Member for assistance at (407) 939-7675. Have your confirmation number handy when you call.

    Have fun planning for the all the Magic you're going to enjoy Timothy!
