    Can I make reservations before my payment plan is fulfilled?

    Hiya, Chelsea!

    Welcome to planDisney! Your autumn visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth will be here in just a few short months. I hope that everyone in your crew is getting excited as you countdown the days until your adventure begins. And while October is the magical month for your arrival, there are some other important dates you will need to keep in mind for various reservations as you continue to plan the best trip ever. And I have great news for you! Your Walt Disney World Vacation package does not need to be paid in full to make these reservations a part of your magical itinerary. 

    The first date to add to your calendar is 60 days prior to your arrival. You can make your dining reservations beginning at 6 AM ET (and sometimes as early as 5:45). So set that alarm and start planning your top picks in advance. This will save some time on the morning the booking window opens. And Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotel can book a total of ten days out, which can help secure some of those high-demand reservations. This is just one of the many exclusive perks Guests of Walt Disney World Resorts receive as part of their stay. Be sure to create your My Disney Experience account and link your entire travel party before this date so you are ready to reserve your favorite spots with ease. 

    You will also be able to book offerings from the Enchanting Extras Collection at the 60-day mark, including VIP tours, dessert parties, and even unique animal encounters. If you are looking to add a little extra magic to your stay, I recommend checking out the amazing options that are part of this fabulous collection. 

    Perhaps the most important reservation you will need during your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is a Park Pass reservation. All four theme parks require a reservation in addition to a valid theme park ticket. There's no need to mark your calendar for this important step. The reservation window is now! You can make your Park Pass reservations as soon as you have your tickets or vacation package booked. So don't delay, make your Park Pass reservations today!

    I hope your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
