    Sarah from WA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Just wondering if ii make the down payment and start paying in my vacation, will I receive a confirmation number to be able to make park reservations? Or will I have to wait until It is paid off first?

    Hello there, Sarah! Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your visit to Walt Disney World Resort this December! 

    Visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays is such a wonderful time! Not only is the weather a bit cooler but you can also look forward to a variety of seasonal offerings! Personally, my favorite event is the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. This special festival invites Guests to experience holiday celebrations from around the world through storytelling, music, and food! It’s definitely a “must-do” in my books!

    When creating your vacation package reservation, you will be prompted to pay an initial deposit at the time of check out. Afterward, you will be given a deadline for when you will need to pay off the remainder of your balance. Fortunately, you will have access to all of your planning tools before paying off the remainder of your balance! This means you should have no problem making your theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass system! 

    If you purchase your vacation package while logged into your My Disney Experience account, your tickets should be automatically connected. This will be your key to making your theme park reservations. As soon as theme park tickets are connected to your account, you can visit the Disney Park Pass system, create your travel party from your Family & Friends list, select a date and theme park, and confirm your selection. It is also highly recommended that you check out the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar online before booking your trip to verify that there is availability during your anticipated travel dates! 

    I hope you have a magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort later this year! Please let us know if we can assist with answering any other questions!
