Helping family save for WDW

Do any of you have tips for helping and motivating others to save for a Disney vacation? We live in AZ and my family lives in FL. We visit them often but want to try to do WDW next year with them. My family's funds are a bit tight but they also have difficulty managing their money and saving.

At first, we decided on a date together, but then I realized what if that date comes and they don't have the money? We don't want to fly all the way out there and do WDW without them. So I thought, what if they save up the money first then we'll plan the trip? Then there's the possibility of them failing to save enough due to not having a clear deadline or goal.

We figured out a cost estimate and how much they need to save per month. My current plan is to have them send me payments via PayPal so it can be set aside in a separate account to be used for the trip (with the option of returning the funds to them should that become necessary).
Within a few months of the trip, if everything is on track, we can start making reservations and really push forward with the trip.

Any ideas? What have others been through in similar situations? Thanks!
