    My sisters and I would like to schedule a trip in mid to late October. However, there are some potential health problems we are dealing with. When should we purchase tickets and make reservations, and can we reschedule without losing money if need to

    Howdy Shirley!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for stopping by and sharing a very important question with us!

    I am super excited to hear that you and your sister plan to visit the Walt Disney World Resort in October!  This October is an extra special time to visit!  I am so sorry to hear about the health problem situation that you are dealing with!  I understand how difficult it can be to make plans and not know for sure if you will keep to the plans.  I recommend booking a Walt Disney World vacation package for October as soon as possible.  By booking a vacation package with your Disney Resorts Collection hotel and theme park tickets combined, if you need to cancel or modify your reservation, Hakuna Matata, No Worries!  You will be required to make a simple deposit to hold your reservation, but you can get a full refund (currently 30-days prior to your check-in date) if something happens and you cannot make it in October.

    I recommend making your reservations as soon as possible for October due to the EPIC celebration that will begin October first.  The Walt Disney World Resort will celebrate 50 years of “Making Dreams Come True” during your visit.  This 18-month once-in-a-lifetime celebration will be full of EARIdescents of excitement that will fill the air during your visit!  This monumental moment in Walt Disney World history is something I am sure you will not want to miss!  To stay informed about all the announcements as they are released, go to “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” and “Sign Up!’

    Your vacation will be here before you know it!  Check out the Disney Parks Blog to stay up-to-date on everything to do and see during your visit in October!  I hope everything works out so that you will be able to visit the place “Where Dreams Come True!”  If you have any more questions as you continue to plan your unforgettable vacation, please come back to planDisney, Shirley!  We are always here to help you and your sister plan your next visit to Neverland!

    See Ya Real Soon,
