    I had a question regarding a vacation I want to book through to Walt Disney World for January 2023. Will we be able to modify/change the dates of the booking if we need to? And will there be costs applied? Thank you in advance!

    Hiya Isabel!

    Welcome to planDisney and "danke" for sending us this magical question! As a fellow international Guest, I am so excited for you to experience the Disney magic next year, and I am honoured to be a part of your planning process. 

    Hopefully, you will not have to reschedule your magical vacation, but there are ways for you to change the dates of your trip should you need to. Theme park reservations can be cancelled at any time through the My Disney Experience website with no fees. For your tickets, you can call a Disney representative to have the date changed. However, should your theme park tickets expire, their value can be used as a credit and put toward purchasing new theme park tickets of equal or higher value. To use this credit, however, you will need help from a Disney Cast Member, either on the phone or in-person at the Walt Disney World Resort. You may cancel or reschedule your dining reservations online, but be sure to check the cancellation policy for your type of reservation! Depending on your Resort reservation, you may also be able to reschedule it online in the "My Reservations" section. However, you will also have to call a Disney Representative if you do not have that option. Since theme park ticket and Resort hotel reservation prices vary depending on the date, you may have to pay for the price difference. In addition, the cancellation policy states that $200 USD fees will be due when a Resort hotel reservation is cancelled two to 29 days prior. If the reservation is cancelled one day or less prior, the price of the package will not be refunded.

    Now, if you do have to reschedule your magical vacation, I do recommend that you book it before March 2023. Why you may ask? The 50th anniversary is an 18-month celebration that continues through March 2023, and that will make your vacation extra unique and magical! Indeed, the celebration includes special fireworks, cavalcades, decorations, souvenirs and even treats! Personally, Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park and Harmonious at EPCOT have become some of my favourite nighttime spectacular shows to date, and I highly recommend watching them during the world's most magical celebration! Watch Disney Enchantment from the middle of Main Street USA for an extra magical view.

    I hope this was helpful, Isabel, and that you and your ohana will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your trip, or if you need more recommendations, please don't hesitate to reach back out. We are always happy to help, especially from one international Guest to another!

    Have a magical day!
