Good news for those of you that were planning on going to Walt Disney World, or Disneyland, they have temporarily adjusted their change fee policy if you have to move your trip due to Coronavirus.

“Walt Disney Travel Company is making a temporary adjustment to its policy on change fees for Walt Disney World® and Disneyland® Resort vacations. The following applies only to leisure package bookings made through Walt Disney Travel Company. Until further notice, Disney will waive the Disney-imposed $50 change fee for Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort packages.
Guests may move their reservation to a future date in 2020.

Changes are subject to availability, and the guest is responsible for paying any increase in price resulting from the change. In addition, any change fees assessed by third-party hotels or other suppliers must be paid, and some products or services may be non-refundable. If air transportation has been ticketed, the guest will be responsible for any increase in airfare as well as any change fee assessed by the airline.

For clients who purchased travel insurance, there is an updated policy in effect until further notice: Up to 24 hours prior to arrival, Guests may modify their arrival dates and maintain coverage under the protection policy as long as there is not a claim on the original travel dates.

Some events and dining experiences may not be offered on the new dates and may be non-refundable.

This temporary policy does not apply to changes made for groups, meetings, and other room block bookings.

If a vacation is cancelled, all applicable cancellation fees continue to apply.

To change (or cancel) reservations, please call the Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort call center.”

Universal Orlando initiated something similar a couple of days ago.

You could change your plans before this and just pay the additional costs plus a $50 change fee. Now you still do everything the same, but the $50 fee is waived if you follow their guidelines within the time allotment.
