    i am planning to visit for the first time nov. 2009. my ? is when i call to book do i have to pay in full at that time or put down a deposit, or can i just book and make payments at a later date? thanks for any help.

    Hi Jennifer! Disney makes it very easy to book and pay for your trip.

    If you are booking a package through Disney, you will have to put a $200 deposit down to secure your reservation. You have until 45 days before you arrive to pay the balance. You can pay the balance however you like - you can make a monthly payment or pay it all at once - as long as it is paid in full 45 days before your trip.

    If you are only booking a hotel room through Disney, you will need to pay for one night plus tax up front. The balance will be due when you arrive at the resort to check in. You can pay it in advance, but you don't have to.

    When you call to book a reservation, Disney will put a 7 day courtesy hold on the room for you. If you want to think about it or talk it over with your family, you can do so without making a financial commitment right away. However, you must call back within the 7 days or the hold will expire.

    Good luck and have fun planning your first trip to Disney World!
