    If I reserve a WDW resort room at the 499 day mark and prices go up between then and my travel date, what price will I be charged if I choose to wait to make the full payment closer to my arrival? Reservation date price or arrival date price? Thinking CBR

    Dear Danielle,

    Thank you so much for stopping back over here to the Disney Parks Moms Panel to visit us again! It sounds like your magical planning process is well underway!

    If you make a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, you will only pay the price that you booked and not a higher price. On the other hand, if you get closer to your dates and you see a Special Offer that allows you to pay a lower price, you can re-book your reservation to take advantage of that Special Offer! The bottom line for me is that it doesn't hurt to book early!

    Hope that helps with your planning process!
