    I am planning to go to disney late next year and will be doing the payment plan to pay off the vacation. My family was there last year, but we paid in full early then made dinner reservations. Will i be able to make early reservations before paid in full?

    Hi, Steven! 

    I am happy to report the ability to make Advanced Dining Reservations at the 180 day booking window is not contingent upon your vacation package being paid-in-full! You will be able to book your dining reservations with no problems. In fact, anyone is able to book a dining reservation online or via phone 180 days in advance. The only difference is guests of a Walt Disney World® Resort hotel are able to book all their dining, for up to ten days, all at one time, paid in full or not :) 

    Once you get all your dining lined up, your next vacation planning "milestone" will be your FastPass+ booking window. You will be able to secure your favorite attractions online through your My Disney Experience Account 60 days in advance of your arrival. You will also be able to complete online check-in for your resort at the 60 day mark. 

    Another helpful tip is to download the My Disney Experience App to your smartphone. This app will be your go-to source for planning in advance, or once you've arrived! I find the app very useful once on-property, especially if I need to modify any plans while on-the-go. 

    I hope this is helpful, Steven! Good luck in getting all your preferred dining reservations. I'll send you some Moms Panel pixie-dust. And please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any additional questions.
