    Hi there, Rebecca! Welcome to planDisney. We're so glad you're here!

    It sounds like you're planning a magical trip next year and I couldn't be more excited for you. There's nothing quite like visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of year! There's something extra special about making plans far enough in advance to truly enjoy every step of the planning process. Rebecca, I'd love to help! 

    When making a reservation for a vacation package, which includes tickets as well as a stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will be asked to pay a one-time deposit. After you pay the deposit, your final payment will be due 30 days before your arrival date (though you can make payments towards your trip before then, too!). I reached out to a Cast Member to confirm and she let me know that your final payment is indeed due 30 days before your check-in date. She also mentioned that if you see another date listed, it's just a temporary display error. You can also call a Cast Member if you need more assistance with booking your vacation package!

    As your trip gets closer, be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog! This is the best resource to stay up-to-date on everything you can expect during your vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, especially during the holidays. You can also tune into the planDisney Podcast, where panelists share their best tips, personal stories, and heartfelt advice on all Disney destinations!

    Wishing you the very merriest,
