Due to the current global pandemic, Adventures by Disney has had to make adjustments to upcoming Disney Destinations vacations.
For the time being, Adventures by Disney has made adjustments to its terms and conditions (including waiving the cancellation fee and giving full credit back on vacation packages). And now, Disney is extending the time frame on these adjustments.
Initially, Adventures by Disney stated that guests would be able to receive a 100% credit for Disney Adventures purchased through May 31, 2002 — Now, Disney has pushed that date back to vacations booked through July 31, 2020.
The official cancellation statement on the Adventures by Disney website reads:
IMPORTANT DATE CHANGE AND TEMPORARY CANCELLATION POLICY UPDATE
We are offering a temporary adjustment to our terms and conditions to provide more flexibility for our Guests.
Guests currently booked on adventures through July 31, 2020 can change their reservation and receive a 100% credit to be used toward a future adventure. Guests may select a new travel date and/or an alternate adventure by December 31, 2020 by calling (855) 223-0025 or (407) 566-8345. The credit is non-refundable and standard prevailing rates will apply.
Additionally, we are offering a temporary update to our cancellation policy. Any new bookings made on future trips through the end of June 2020 will be subject to fully refundable deposits up until the final payment date.
The company had initially made the announcements that previously booked trips for March, April, and May had been canceled. Adventures by Disney also made the decision to cancel vacations booked through June 30, 2020. The official statement reads:
With the well-being of our Guests and team members as our top priority, Adventures by Disney has made the decision to suspend most departures through June 30, 2020. Adventures by Disney will contact all impacted Guests or their Travel Agents with updated information and options.
