    What happens if a member of our travel party get covid a few days before we are supposed to go down and stay on property for our vacation? Can we reschedule even though it's so short notice?

    Hey Howdy Hey Zoe and welcome back to planDisney fellow Buckeye!

    One of the best parts about planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort is having the peace of mind of the flexibility of your reservation. Disney acknowledges that there is so much that can happen between the time Guests book their trip and arrive on property and I feel the terms and conditions of vacation packages are very practical. Thank you for your question on these specifics. Let's see what we can come up with so you are prepared!

    When you book a vacation package with Disney, which includes accommodations at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and theme park tickets, dates to make changes are critical. As long as you make changes 30 days or more from your date of arrival, you can do so without penalty. If you cancel your trip from 2-29 days from your date of arrival, there is a $200.00 cancellation fee you will be charged and refunded the rest. Any trip canceled less than 2 days would not get a refund on your vacation.

    If you changed the dates of your vacation less than 30 days from your date of travel, a $50.00 change fee may be applied. Making changes to your vacation travel dates would also come with the difference being applied to your vacation from when you originally booked to the new dates. So changing the dates to a more expensive time of the year, you would also be charged the difference between the two. Charges as listed with the change fee and cancelations are subject to change. 

    I also advise everyone thinking about a trip to Walt Disney World to consider travel insurance. Disney does have a policy in place you can check out and there are many from third parties as well you can look into. Travel insurance with Disney does not have to be added until 30 days from your date of travel so I would encourage you to look through the policy when it comes to cancellations or rebookings. Many of the policies also have special provisions when it comes to COVID-19 as well you may want to check into it. This could be a great way to offset any expenses that might occur if the unexpected happens. 

    Best of luck as you continue to plan for your next trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth. If you have any further questions please let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
