    So we are planning our vacation a year in advanced. Does Disney have like a way to make Payments towards your vacation since it is so far away. Because we will want to book dinner at Cinderella's Royal table and other thing you cant book yet.

    Hi there Whitney,

    Yes!  This is one of the best parts of booking your Walt Disney World Resort vacation so far in advance.  To secure your reservation or vacation package, you only need to pay a small deposit.  Up until the 45-day mark, you can make payments as much or as little as you wish!  Another option would be to purchase Disney Gift Cards as you go.  The balance of your trip may be paid with Disney Gift Cards as well as any purchases around the parks.  This would include dining and even gratuity.  So a Disney Gift Card is a great way to budget for meals and other expenditures.  You can buy them weekly or monthly in the increments of your choice and save them for your upcoming trip! 

    And another tip, if you choose a vacation package that includes one of the fabulous Disney Dining Plans, some, if not all of your meals will be included (depending on the chosen plan) which is a great way to budget and make installment payments as you go.... with no pressure, because you can choose the amount you pay up until the 45-day mark when the balance is due.  By adding The Disney Dining Plan to your vacation package, you'll know the exact cost of your trip prior to arrival and then you can purchase Disney Gift Cards to cover souvenirs and anything else you may need while you're there!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
