    Can I send money as a savings plan for my early summer visit to Disney's Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Cynthia, thank you for taking the time to stop by planDisney with your question.

    Not too long ago, there was a program called Disney Vacation Account that was introduced in 2015. With this program, Guests could budget and save towards their magical Disney vacation in Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California, Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa in Ko Olina in Hawaii, Disney Cruise Line, or Adventures by Disney. Sadly, Disney Vacation Account ended in 2017 and there is not another program in its place.

    However, you can slowly pay into your vacation. When planning for a Disney vacation, 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, so 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, Cynthia. 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. Disney Park Pass helps Walt Disney World Resort parks manage attendance and promote safe physical distancing. 

    Please kindly note, payment deadlines and park operations are subject to change due to the uncertainty of current pandemic. Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog and Disneyworld.com for official news and updates, including special deals on vacation packages!
