Disney Vacation Change Policy Coronavirus

The novel coronavirus known as COVID-19 continues to spread, but the fear of the virus is spreading even faster and causing even more destruction with quarantines, canceled events, and rescheduled vacations. But life goes on at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida as proper hygienic precautionary measures are put in place and risk of infection remains significantly low in the United States.

Still, the Walt Disney Travel Company understands that some potential guests are not so convinced that it is still safe to travel and are looking to get out of their Spring Break and other imminent plans. So it has decided to adjust its policy regarding change fees and begin communicating those changes to ensure that clients who book with Authorized Disney Vacation Planners understand their options.

The new policy is pretty simple and straight forward. It states that the $50 change fee for Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort packages is now waived so long as guests change their reservations to a later date before January 1, 2021. All changes, of course, are subject to availability. If there is a price increase on the new desired dates, guests will have to pay the difference. Additionally, all changes concerning air travel and third-party hotels must be taken up with those respective companies — Disney has no control over third-party hotel policies or airfare. If you wish to outright cancel your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort or the Disneyland Resort, the pre-existing cancelation fees still apply.
