    Hi I am planning to book a trip but I have 5 for sure guests and one maybe guests if I book now can I take off a guest later if needed? Thanks

    Hey Howdy Hey Kaitlyn and welcome to planDisney!

    I love the beginning stages of planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. It is so fun doing a little research looking into each resort, talking about how many days to visit the parks and all there is to do when onsite. I am glad to be part of your early planning! I will be happy to help give you more information on modifying your vacation package if needed. 

    When it comes to booking a vacation package with Walt Disney World, which includes stays at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and theme park tickets, Disney is flexible if plans need to be adjusted. Currently, a down payment is required to hold your reservation but the full amount is not due until 30 days from your date of arrival. If you do need to make a change any time between now and 30 days from when you arrive, you can do this easily without penalty.

    After you make your final payment, if you need to make a change to your reservation, you most likely would have to call Disney to do so. At this time, Disney does outline a $50 change fee to reservations that may apply if you need to subtract a member of your party, but you would get a full refund of their cost. Considering this may not be a change to your full trip, the Cast Member you work with if that scenario would happen would guide you on any financial liabilities or not. 

    Recently Disney has had a few big announcements on all the excitement around the parks and resorts for the rest of this year as well as things to look forward to in 2025. Almost every Guest staying onsite at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel enjoys Early Theme Park Entry as well as Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. But one huge addition in 2025 is a complimentary day pass to the water parks on your date of arrival. The weather in Flordia in January can be a mix of cooler weather and warmer, but if you happen to find yourself checking in on a rather warm day, you will have the ability to head on over to one of Disney's water parks for free!

    I hope this helped to clear up the timelines for making changes to your vacation package and any financial liabilities you may or may not have. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach back out and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
