    Is it possible to get a refund if your flight home gets unexpectedly moved to an earlier time?

    Hiya, Seth! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you're making plans to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth! But you also bring up a great question about what to do if life takes a not-so-magical turn before your vacation. One of the things I love about planning trips to Walt Disney World Resort is how easy it is to shift and change my plans! If you find out that you need to modify your dates, you can often do this online. Log into your account, hover your mouse over the My Disney Experience tab, and click My Plans. Scroll down until you see your Disney Resorts Collection hotel, then click the "Change Reservation" button on the right. Here, you'll be able to modify a variety of details, including your travel dates (subject to availability). 

    However, what if you happen to experience a situation where your plans change in a time period where you aren't able to modify your dates? Like Tiana, we have to dig a little deeper! After speaking with a Cast Member, I was told that there isn't a standard policy when it comes to unexpected flight changes and your resort reservation. Their best recommendation was to speak to a Cast Member, either directly at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel or by calling (407) 939-1936, if you find that your flights have unexpectedly moved and resulted in a change of your plans. While nothing can be guaranteed, Cast Members always do their best to understand your specific situation and provide you with the next steps available to you. You may also want to consider adding the Travel Protection Plan offered; since this is state- and situation-specific, be sure that you thoroughly read the details of this plan to see if it may be right for you and the situation you're anticipating.

    If you have any other questions, from making advance dining reservations to theme park reservations with the Disney Park Pass system, please visit us again! After all, you've got a friend in me.
