    I already booked our disney package for November 2018. If they come out with deals/discount offers from now until then, am I able to alter my reservation to take advantage of the savings? What happens if I already paid for our trip? Will they offer refund?

    Hi Danielle,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you are planning on a budget. I am always looking for a great discount on our Walt Disney World vacations, so I understand!

    If you have booked a vacation package and a better Special Offer is released later, I suggest that you call to speak to a cast member at 407-939-5277. When I was planning a prior trip several years ago, a better deal was released after I had booked our vacation package. I was able to call and get the new Special Offer applied to my reservation and we received a credit back to my debit card of about $200. Pay close attention to the discount, however. I had incorrectly assumed that we would get a discount on the entire package price, but the discount was only on the resort hotel room. It was still a savings, just not as much as I had hoped!

    I must also let you know that there is no guarantee that a cast member will be able to apply a new Special Offer to your existing reservation. The applicability of the Special Offer can depend on the details of the Special Offer, the day you request the change and availability of rooms. It certainly is worth checking, so keep your eye on the Special Offers to see if any new ones are applicable to your dates, resort hotel and room type. 

    Danielle, I am glad that you booked your vacation package! At times, room types can sell-out before a particular Special Offer is released. I have learned that it is best to book our resort hotel and room type first then check on additional Special Offers later. 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
