I always call a few days before hand and make the payment manualy. It then takes about a week to show on your bank statement.
I usually do this too, but I find it helpful to phone up every couple months or so and pay it up over time so I know it's fully paid etc and I don't spend the money

I've stopped paying by installments after my last trip when they took one of the the payments twice. Took a lot of phone calls to sort that one out.

Is it best to make reservations by phone or internet? Can you use ANY country to get the best price. Because right now Sweden is giving me a savings of $800 over UK.

Thanks for all the advice. I think I will call a month before my final payment and do it manually. This way I can tell my CC company ahead of time to make sure they don't reject the charge as fraud suspicion for being foreign, and I won't have to worry about the system auto charging anything.

How and when can I make dining reservations? Is it necessary to do them 6 months in advance like for WDW to get the best restaurants and time slots?

You can book on any countries website as nothing gets sent by post. Regarding best way of making resas I'll let someone else answer as I've never made one

Restaurant reservations are only made by phone +33 1 60 30 40 50 (option 2 for English) or once on site through your hotel, City Hall or direct at the restaurant.

You can't book anything further than 60 days in advance

Thanks, I'll mark that on my calendar. 60 days is the same as DL in California. Gives me plenty of time to plan!

Actually one more question- does anyone know if you can call 60 days in advance of the 1st day of your trip, and make dining reservations for your entire trip? For WDW you can call 60 days in advance of your first day and make reservations for up to 10 days past that. Does it work this way for DLP or should I just wait until 60 days from the last day of my trip to be safe?

As far as I'm aware it's 60 days from the date you want to make the reservation for. The +10 days from date of check-in is a perk for staying onsite at WDW, which I'm pretty sure they don't offer at DLP. But don't worry, even if you wait until 56 days beforehand, so you can make all your reservations in one phone call, there will still be plenty of availability.
