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

    Is the flexible cancelation policy still in effect for resort and theme park reservations through Summer 2022? In other words if someone in my party becomes ill with Covid-like symptoms can we cancel the trip and is it fully refundable?

    Hey howdy hey Stacey and welcome to planDisney!

    There is so much to be excited about for your trip this summer. There have been so many recent announcements and more to come for new experiences this summer in Walt Disney World Resort. One of my more highly anticipated announcements has to do with Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind set to open in the summer of 2022. Every little sneak peek that I have heard about this attraction only gets me that much more excited to experience it. One very special thing you will be able to see is the Fourth of July Firework shows above EPCOT and Magic Kingdom in celebration of Independence Day. I hope you have your plans set to see one of these shows as they are shows unlike any other to celebrate this special day. Of course, traveling these days is a lot different than what it was a few years ago with the consideration of Covid-19 and policies that are in place that may impact your vacation. Let's take a look at the specifics of the terms and conditions for vacation packages that may help to give you some peace of mind going forwards. 

    Disney has updated their terms and conditions for vacation packages in 2022 which are a little different than they were even last year. There is a clause in the terms and conditions that discusses Covid-19 that anyone purchasing the tickets will abide by the rules and will not hold Disney accountable for getting sick if they do and such. There are no specifics with regards to getting Covid-19 and being able to cancel and get a full refund if this does happen. With regards to changing the dates of travel. If you do so greater than 30 days from your date of arrival, you do so with no fee, only the potential of paying the difference if you book your trip at a more expensive time than your original booking. If you change the dates of travel less than 30 days from your date of arrival, you will be charged a $50.00 fee and any difference if you book a more expensive time of the year. If you needed to fully cancel your trip if you do so 30 days or more from your date of travel you can and receive a full refund. If you cancel from 2 to 29 days prior to your date of arrival you will be charged a $200.00 cancellation fee. Any cancelation of fewer than two days will forfeit the full trip cost paid. 

    One thing that may further help ease your mind would be the consideration of travel insurance. Disney does offer a Travel Protection Plan that can be added to your trip any time prior to your 30-day final payment due date. This may help to offset any cost that you come across experienced by Covid-19. Just make sure to read the policy for specific details as it relates to Covid-19 and reimbursement rates. 

    I hope this helps to clear up the new changes to the terms and conditions for 2022. Good luck with your continued planning for your upcoming trip in July. If you have any further questions let us know, we love talking about all things Disney!

    Happy planning,
