    What is the cancellation policy for vacation packages?

    Hi there, Gina! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with your question!

    I am so happy to see the magic is calling you, and you're answering the call by planning a magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. How exciting! But as our favorite Little Chef Remy said, "Change is nature," and sometimes, plans change. So, let's chat about the cancellation policies, shall we?

    When you book a Walt Disney World Vacation Package that includes your Disney Resort hotel room and theme park tickets, a deposit is required at booking and the remaining balance is due 30 days before your arrival date. If your pixie-dusted plans have to change for any reason, as long as you cancel at least 30 days before your check-in date, you will receive a full refund. For cancellations made 2 to 29 days before your scheduled arrival, you will be charged a cancellation fee. While prices and fees are subject to change, at this time, the cancellation fee is the $200 deposit paid at the time of booking. Any no-shows or cancellations made one day or less before check-in will not receive a refund. 

    Speaking of pixie-dusted Packages, Gina, did you hear that the Disney Dining Plan is returning in 2024 and can be added to any Vacation Package with an arrival on or after January 9, 2024?! The Dining Plan is the best way to enjoy the oh-so-magical dining experiences and must-have snacks without even having to think about a budget. Once you step into the Disney bubble, you get to completely escape reality and enter the land of fantasy and fun!

    I hope this helps you book your Vacation Package with confidence, Gina, and happy planning, my friend! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have along your planning journey.

    Adventure is out there!
