    Alyssa from VA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Hi! If i change my reservation from December to February, it is cheaper. I have paid my balance in full already, so will i get a credit since the package is cheaper on the new dates? Or Will i just lose money?

    Hey Howdy Hey Alyssa and welcome back to planDisney!

    One of the best parts about planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is the flexibility of your options when planning. Things come up all the time, such as life events or cheaper deals, that may impact your initially planned vacation. Let's talk about some of the options that you do have when it comes to making changes to your vacation. 

    One big benefit that you have going for you is your timing. Getting on things early will help to avoid any change fees you may be subjected to if you try to make changes less than 30 days from your date of arrival. Considering you may be making these changes early, you should be given a refund on the changes if you move your reservation from December to February. This will apply to the vacation package only which would include your Disney Resorts Collections hotel accommodations and theme park tickets. This does not apply to any extras such as special event tickets you may have purchased. 

    To make these changes you can do this right from your My Disney Experience account. Once you log on, scroll to the "My Plans, Reservations and Tickets" section. On the right of the screen, you should see an option to "Change/Modify Reservations". Once you click on that link, you should be taken to a screen to check on different dates and to verify your party and resort. You can move through the steps to change the booking and will review the pricing. Once you do move through this process, you should get a confirmation for the change as well as a refund on the difference. 

    You may come across a scenario where you do log onto your My Disney Experience account and are not given an option to change your reservation, instead, you may be given a phone number to call to do so. You can also call Disney directly about changing your reservation in which the Cast Member can get all of the details done for you as well. 

    If you do end up changing the dates of your vacation, February is a super exciting time to visit Walt Disney World. There is so much happening during that time that you might want to keep up with Disney Parks Blog for the latest on all the Magic. One of the big exciting draws during that time usually takes place over at EPCOT. With the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, you can experience EPCOT in a whole new way. So many exciting celebrations of the performing arts, visual arts and culinary arts, you won't want to miss this exciting celebration!

    Best of luck as you consider moving your reservation dates. I hope these options help to get your transition carried out smoothly. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
