Disney's system WILL NOT ALLOW for any additional payments to be made (other than the deposit) to any ROOM ONLY reservation booked online (whether it be best rate, FL resident or regular rack rate.)

This is no longer true, as when I went to WDW in April, I was able to make my initial down payment on my room only reservation, and then I called in a few days later to pay the remainder. The phone CM took my payment and it was never cancelled nor refunded to my bank account. You ARE able to make additional payments to room only reservations now.

I've made my deposit and 3 additional payments online for an upcoming trip. I also did the same thing last year. We booked in March 2009 and made 5 or 6 online payments until our trip was paid in full. We travelled in August.

I don't understand why people think you can't do this. It's very easy and most people I know that book online make payments online.

Is your reservation a "room only" reservation or a package, that includes room and tickets? If it is a package, then yes, there are no problems making payments online. However, this thread is specifically about "room only" reservations and the inability to make payments on those online. "Room only" reservations can be made in payments by calling customer service.

Room only you can! I've done it. But I do have to call. Packages are another story! When I've done room/tickets/dining, I can't.

  • interim payments can be made (if you've booked through a travel agency, check with policies for minimum interim payments)

Room Only Reservations booked online:
  • Has an 8 digit confirmation number beginning with the letter R
  • 1 night plus tax due within 14 days of the booking
  • balance not payable until check in
  • no interim payments can be made. Any payment that appears to have been accepted over the phone will be refunded to your credit card.

Pacakge Reservations (no matter where booked):
  • Has an 8 digit confirmation. Should begin with either a 1, 6, or 8 depending on how you booked it.
  • $200 due within 14 days of the booking
  • balance due 45 days prior to arrival (check your confirmation or use this link to calculate your date)
  • interim payments can be made (if you've booked through a travel agency, check with policies for minimum interim payments)

These are the policies for reservations booked in the US and through US based travel agencies. YMMV for booking through Disney's Canadian, UK or other international divisions.
So, I booked a room-only reservation "on-line" through the US Disney.com site.
I received a 12 digit confirmation number (not an 8 digit one)
It does state that payment is not due until arrival, however, it also states that I can make full payment at any time by contacting a Disney CM by phone.

Why did I receive the 12 digit number rather than the 8 digit number when I booked online?

Because the information from that post was almost 3 years old.

Sorry about that!

Before Disney introduced their online check in, the ONLY thing that could be pulled up online was a reservation that had been booked online - whether package or room only. They were giving the 8 digit R confirmations then.

BUT - since introducing online check in, they needed a way to make sure EVERYBODY could bring up their reservations online, no matter where or how somebody booked.

Now, they can take payments for room only reservations over the phone, and they will stick, and you get the 12 digit confirmation number.

I also updated that post, so it's a bit more pertinent.

If when you make your original payment and it's for the entire room do they refund whatever is over the $200 or you're all set?

I was going to take advantage of the offer they have going on now and just wanted to double check.

Thanks!
