    Hello, Is there still a saving club? where you plan your vacation and start saving to reach that goal?

    Hello Amanda! Thank you for taking the time to drop by planDisney with your questions.

    It sounds like you're referring to the Disney Vacation Account that was introduced in 2015. It was a program for Guests to budget and save towards their magical Disney vacation in Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California, Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina in Hawaii, Disney Cruise Line, or Adventures by Disney. Unfortunately, Disney Vacation Account ended in 2017 and at this time, there isn’t a replacement saving program in its place.

    However, fret not Amanda. When planning for a Disney vacation, rest assure that you do not need to pay in full (unless you are arriving within 30 days). If you book directly through Walt Disney Travel Company, you only need to pay $200 for your room and tickets vacation package. You can pay towards your balance as much and as frequently as you want, as long as the balance is paid off 30 days prior to your vacation. If you book a room-only reservation, you’ll pay one night plus applicable taxes in order to book your vacation. The balance for your room-only reservation is due when you check in to your hotel. If you book through a third-party travel company, other rules may apply so please check with your travel agent directly.

    It is helpful to book your vacation package early, Amanda. At this time, Guests need to make a park reservation via Disney Park Pass prior to their arrival. Having a valid park ticket alone does not guarantee park entry, unfortunately. Disney Park Pass helps Walt Disney World Resort parks manage attendance and promote safe physical distancing. 

    I’m already looking forward to a highly anticipated event, The World’s Most Magical Celebration in 2021. Walt Disney World Resort is turning 50 on October 1 and many Guests (my family included!) have already planned vacations for this special celebration. Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog for official news and updates, including special deals on vacation packages!

    As you continue to plan your Disney vacation for your family, please swing by planDisney for more tips and advice. And don’t hesitate to send us more questions! We are all EARS to help you plan an amazing trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Have a wonderful day,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
