    If we purchase a dining plan can we cancel it if we needed to? My son is in the military and we never know when he is called away?

    Hi Deborah,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Mine is also a military family, and I absolutely know how it goes when it comes to last-minute orders and travel. My family had a magical week planned last fall, and my husband had an unexpected military obligation pop up that had us scrambling to make it all work – which it did, thanks to a heaping dose of pixie dust!

    Generally speaking, vacation packages may be rescheduled or cancelled within 30 days of your check-in date, but this is not always the case. A reservation’s terms and conditions depend on a lot of factors, so my advice is to inquire at the time of booking or, if the vacation is already booked, call Walt Disney World Resort Reservations at (407) 939-1936 to inquire. The Cast Member you speak with can help you understand the terms and conditions specific to your vacation package, and answer any questions you have. I have had only wonderfully supportive Cast Members when working on plans for my military family, and I hope you find the same!

    Deborah, there are some really great Military Special Offers for Walt Disney World Resort vacations, including discounts on select room reservations, tickets, and Memory Maker. I think Memory Maker is a must-have for Walt Disney World Vacations, and especially for military families, who can look back on their vacation memories when they might be separated from a loved one. For one discounted price, your family will have access to your PhotoPass photos, on-ride photos and videos, and even Magic Shots, which add special Disney magic to your pictures. 

    I’m sending you pixie-dusted wishes that everything goes as planned and you are visiting Walt Disney World together with your son soon!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
