    When is the full balance due for vacation packages , can the deposit be refunded up to a certain date?

    Hi James,

    They sure can!  Currently Walt Disney World vacation packages for 2015 have the following terms:

    • $200 deposit with final payment due 45 days prior to check-in
    • Changes or cancellations without penalty up until 45 days prior to check-in
    • Cancellations 2-44 days prior to check-in incur $200 cancellation fee
    • Cancellations 1 day prior to check-in results in full package price being non-refundable

    If you are concerned that your vacation plans might change you might consider making a room-only reservation.  This type of reservation is for your Disney Resort hotel room only and not any other components of a vacation package.  Currently room-only reservations have the following terms:

    • Deposit of 1 night's room rate
    • Final payment due at check-in
    • May change or cancel up until 5 days prior to check-in (6 days if booked online)

    At a later date if you would like to add other components usually you can convert a room-only reservation to a vacation package reservation by adding theme park tickets and/or the Disney Dining Plan.  However once you convert your room-only reservation it will be subject to the vacation package terms.

    As always, terms and conditions are subject to change so please review them carefully when you are making your reservations.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question James!  I hope this information helps you with your vacation planning.  Please let us know if you have any further questions, we are always happy to help.
