    When I am reserving a hotel online do I need to make the full payment or will it only place a hold on my credit card?

    You’re as welcome as can be at planDisney, Amanda!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    You’re going to love staying inside the magic! Each Disney Resorts Collection hotel is uniquely themed, and you'll find each to accommodate different budgets. I love having great dining options around the Resort hotels, and family-friendly amenities such as Movies Under the Stars add just the perfect sprinkle of pixie dust to my family’s vacation. The convenience of having Bell Services hold your luggage for you the day you’re checking in and checking out of your Disney hotel while you play at the theme parks is also one of my favorite perks!

    Amanda, if your reservation is part of a Vacation Package, there will be a $200 deposit required, and the remaining balance is due 30 days before your arrival. You can pay at your own pace until that date, or you can pay in full 30 days prior to the start of your vacation. If your reservation is a Room-Only reservation, the deposit for the room is the first night’s stay, plus tax. The balance for a room-only reservation is due upon check-in. 

    Once you’ve checked out the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar and purchased your theme park tickets, I would encourage you to make your Disney Park Pass reservations as soon as possible since Guests need both tickets and park pass reservations in order to enter the theme parks. Disney Park Pass reservations are subject to availability, so I always recommend getting yours booked as soon as you can. 

    We can’t wait to welcome you to the magic, Amanda! Have an enchanting time.
