    Hi! If I make changes in my travel dates after buying my plane tickets through Disney do I have to pay a fee even if that change is made before the 45 days window prior to my trip? Thank you for your time! ;-)

    Hi Ivan!

    When making your changes to your Walt Disney World vacation package, the 45 day or less window really only applies to your Room, Tickets, and Dining plan components of your vacation.  The rule is as followed:
    • For a change made 44 days or less prior to arrival or results in a rate change, there is an additional change fee of $50 per a package, plus any change assessed by hotels or other suppliers.
    The "other suppliers" would pertain to your airfare. Disney itself does not charge a change fee, but the airlines most typically will depending on the terms of your flight.  You will be charged the airlines change fee plus any difference in the cost of the airfare. Please note that most changes must be made at least 7 days in advance.  

    If you have already booked your airfare, I would double check to see what your change fee would be depending on the airline and possible dates you are wishing to travel.  If you haven't booked your airline, I wouldn't recommend booking until you know for sure of your dates or arrival.  In most cases you can still find decent deals on airfare 45-60 days before your travel.  Also, you may want to look around consider booking airfare yourself.  In some cases you might find that you can do better on your own than booking through Walt Disney Travel Company.

    I hope this helps and please let me know if I can answer anymore of your questions!

    Kindest Regards,
