    I'd like to know if there's any sort of assurance in case I need to cancel or postpone my trip. I am about to purchase a package for September 2018 Thanks!

    Hello Rodrigo!

    It is a pleasure to welcome a fellow Brazilian to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    I really enjoy planning every single detail of our family visits to the Walt Disney World Resort, and travel insurance is always an important aspect to consider. Just like me, you are coming to the United States from Brazil, so I highly recommend purchasing it if you are concerned about having to postpone or cancel your trip. This is also extremely important in case you come across unexpected travel or health issues. 

    Travel insurance is not included with Magic Your Way Vacations Packages, so you are responsible for providing your own. I suggest talking to your travel agent in Brazil to learn about cancellation policies before buying your vacation package, and take the opportunity to check what types of travel insurance they can offer you.

    About two years ago, we were forced to cancel a trip to Europe the night before departure because my husband fell extremely ill. It was a non-refundable offer, but luckily we had purchased travel insurance and all costs incurred due to the cancellation were covered. Coverage depends on the type of insurance you decide to buy, so do your research carefully and consider what is best for you and your family.

    Rodrigo, did you know that the Disney Parks Moms Panel is also available in Portuguese? Please stop by next time! It will be an honor to assist you in our own language.

    Best magical wishes,
