Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I am hoping to be able to take my family of 4 to WDW for the 1st time ever. We are on an EXTREMELY tight budget. Do you you have a payment plan so we can plan a wonderful vaction a couple years in advance and pay it off before we get there.

- Hi Trinity!
It's so exciting to hear someone plan their first trip to Disney! I can remember all the excitement (and anxiety) the first time I planned my trip for myself. But hang on, because all the hard work will definitely pay off when you step that first foot on Disney property! :-)
If you plan to secure your vacation straight through Disney, you can make your reservations online up to almost a year in advance. To secure the vacation online, you have to put down a minimum deposit of $200. Once that is done, you can set your own monthly plan based on the remaining due leading up to the vacation. Disney usually encourages that the balance be paid off at least 45 days before your arrival date (which they will clearly provide you with a Total Payment Due Date).
What I normally do is divide the remaining balance by the amount of months before the due date. That should give you your monthly average owed.
Good Luck! And may all your planning be both fun and exciting!
