All Things Disney Deposits and Payment Plans!

Are you thinking about booking a trip to the Disney parks but are hesitate because you don't want to pay in full at the time of booking? Don't worry! Walt Disney World and Disneyland California both accept payment plans and require small deposits at the time of booking. In this article, we'll discuss deposits, payment plans, payment dates and much more!

I've been in your shoes, trust me, I get it. I found myself saying the words out loud, 'I would love to go to Disney but I just can't afford to pay the money upfront.' It wasn't until my hairdresser (true story), told me that Disney accepts payment plans! I eagerly yelped from my chair and immediately went home to look more into it. This has been a life-savor for me when booking trips to the parks. So how much money is required at the time of booking?


First, we should address why there is a deposit? The deposit locks in your rates at the time of booking. There are two different deposits required at the time of booking. It comes down to your reservation and plans!

  1. A Basic Package means room + tickets.

    • For example, 5-night stay and 4-day park base ticket (1-park per day).

    • If you are purchasing a basic package, a $200.00 deposit is due at the time of booking.

    • Looking at the image, you can see you have the option to submit the $200.00 deposit today, pay in full which is due on October 7 or can submit an other amount greater than the deposit.

  2. Room-Only - exactly how it sounds, resort/hotel booking with no tickets.

    • This package requires a deposit equal to 1-nights stay.

    • For example, if the nightly rate for your resort is $150.00, then $150.00 would be required at the time of booking to secure your reservation.

Note: Images listed are examples and costs may vary.

Payment Deadlines and Cancellation/Refund Policy:

Payment Deadlines:

Both Walt Disney World and Disneyland California require full payment 30 days prior to the first day of your vacation.


    • Reservation Dates: October 1-October 7

      • Payment Due Date: Friday, September 1

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

  • If you cancel more than 30 days in advance, you can receive a refund including the deposit made at the time of booking.

  • If you cancel 2-29 days before arrival, you'll receive a refund minus a cancellation fee of $200.00.

  • If you cancel 1 day or less prior to arrival date, you will not receive a refund.


Tip - modify your reservation dates versus cancellation! This way your rates are still locked in and you don't potentially lose out on any money you put down prior.

Payment Plans:

Disney doesn't have a specific payment plan policy but you can create one yourself leading up to the final payment date deadline!


    1. The first Friday of every month, pay $X amount.

    2. Every 2 weeks pay $X amount.

    3. Every Friday pay $X amount.

    4. Having a set date every other month to pay $X amount.

    5. Pay the full amount at once anytime before final payment deadline.

Don't hesitate to contact me today with any questions regarding Disney deposits, payments or cancellation/refund policies!
