New Delta Airlines Ticket Policy Makes Rescheduling Your Disney Trip Much Easier

in Disney, Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World

Delta Airlines New Cancellation Policy

If you have planned a trip to Disneyland or Walt Disney World, chances are that trip began on a Delta Airlines flight. The Atlanta-based airline has a hub at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and it has a very large presence at Orlando International Airport (MCO).

Both Disneyland and Disney World have made it clear that while they will refund everything you paid them, you have to talk to the airlines about getting a refund on those plane tickets (if flying was a part of your trip). And for those who chose to fly Delta, reorganizing your flight just became a lot more convenient.

Delta announced today that it is extending the validity of its flight credits until May 31, 2022.

According to a press release on its website:

Whether customers have been affected by recent schedule adjustments or want additional reassurance about upcoming travel, we’re now extending the ability to plan, re-book and travelwith us for up to two years – giving Delta customers some extra breathing room.

Taking care of customers is at the center of everything we do. In these times of rapid change, we know our customers want the value of their tickets to be secure and redeemable for a longer period.

Tickets normally expire one year after purchase, but we’re providing waived change fees and greater flexibility to travel through May 31, 2022, for customers who:

  • Have upcoming travel already booked in April or May 2020 as of April 3, 2020
  • Have existing eCredits or canceled travel from flights in March, April or May 2020

Meanwhile, new tickets purchased between March 1 and May 31, 2020, can be changed without a change fee for up to a year from the date of purchase.

To put this in Disney terms, that means if you had a vacation to Disneyland or Walt Disney World planned in March, April, or May of this year, you will be able to reschedule your trip for EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival this fall or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in December, . You can still use the same credits for the flight you had planned today.
