    Is getting the Disney insurance worth paying extra for?

    Hi Tonia,

    I can almost guarantee that you will get many different answers to this question if you ask a number of people.  I know some folks on the Moms Panel who buy travel insurance and others who don't.  I've only bought travel insurance for one of my Disney trips.  When we traveled to Germany with Adventures by Disney, I purchased the travel insurance because it was a once in a lifetime trip we would not be able to afford if we had to cancel at the last minute.  However, when my family travels to Walt Disney World, we do not purchase the insurance.  We have found Disney has reasonable cancellation policies and haven't felt that the extra cost of the travel insurance was worthwhile for us.  If you, however, feel that there's a decent chance you might need to cancel your trip for reasons of health, work, etc., then travel insurance may be right for you.  

    Best of luck as you make your decision!
