Transferring a Reservation to a Travel Agent

  • Reservations paid in full are not eligible to be transferred.
  • Reservations that are not paid in full may only be requested within 30 days of the initial booking. (Initial booking date is the date the Reservation Center generates a reservation number, not when the deposit is made).

Cancellation policy-

  • If you cancel within 14 days of making your reservation, there is no penalty.
  • If you cancel your vacation 90 days or more from the date of departure, you are charged $300 per person.
  • 60-89 Days -25% of the land package price is forfieted
  • 30-59 Days - 50% of the land package price is forfieted
  • 0-29 Days - 100% of the land package price is forfieted

If you book airfare thru Adventures by Disney as part of your vacation, additional cancellations fees may apply.

Cancellation by Adventures by Disney

A source of great concern for many Adventures by Disney travellers is the possibility that ABD will cancel their trip because there were too few people signed up for it. This was a significant issue in 2009, but Disney made a series of modifications to the adventures in 2010 and was able to curtail the problem. If Disney does cancel your adventure, they will attempt to re-book you on another adventure. In the event they can not rebook your trip, they will refund you the full amount of your vacation, including anything paid towards vacation protection (provided you have not filed a claim). Disney will also reimburse reasonable expenses for airline cancellation feels (you must provide proof of those charges). If you are rebooked on another adventure, Disney will pay reasonable out of pocket change fees (again, requiring proof of those charges from the airline).

As a general rule, ABD will not cancel an adventure once it's within 90 days of departure. Given the changes to ABD's policies regarding airline reimbursment, this goes along way towards giving those of us booking these trips a piece of mind that even if an adventure is cancelled, we won't be stuck with the airline cancellation fees.
