Thinking of planning a trip with Adventures by Disney this year or maybe next year?
Well, you could save up to $750(!!) on some expeditions and even check out some of their newest offerings, including an adventure to ANTARCTICA?! Well, if you are thinking of booking a future trip with Adventures by Disney, some updates have been made to their cancellations and payment policies that you should know about.
The Adventures by Disney website now has a number of updates regarding its cancellation and payment policies with regards to different adventures.
If you make a NEW 2021 Land, Short Escape, and River Cruise booking through March 31st, 2021 for travel through March 31st, 2022 — you’ll be eligible for fully refundable deposits up until the final payment date. That final payment date has been temporarily modified to just 90 days prior to departure.
Update: The Adventures by Disney website now notes that if you make a NEW 2021 Land, Short Escape, and River Cruise booking through JUNE 30th, 2021 (as opposed to March 31st, 2021) for travel through March 31st, 2022 — you’ll be eligible for fully refundable deposits up until the final payment date. The website also now specifies that the final payment date has been temporarily modified to just 65 days (previously it was 90 days) prior to departure.
But, certain adventures — specifically, Disneyland Resort and Southern California Escape departures beginning in March 2022, all Buenos Aires Escape departures, and all expedition cruise sailings — are excluded from this modified cancellation and final payment policy. So, keep that in mind.
There are also updated cancellation policies when it comes to NEW Antartica and Galapagos Expedition Cruise bookings and Buenos Aires Escape bookings. If you cancel your “Antarctica (12/20/21 and 1/30/22 sailings) or Galapagos (all 2022 sailings) Expedition Cruise or Buenos Aires Escape (12/18/21 and 1/28/22 departures) reservation for any reason through March 31, 2021 [you] will receive a future travel credit in the amount of [your] required deposit.”
There are separate rules for those who change some of the sailings in February, so be sure to read the full updated policy.
The Adventures by Disney website also notes that date changes or cancellations for NEW 2022 River Cruise bookings will follow the standard terms and conditions.
You can read the full updated policy below.
You’ll want to make sure you’ve also reviewed Adventures By Disney’s date change and final payment policies for new and existing bookings. Essentially, if you’ve booked an adventure through May 31st, 2021, you can change your reservation up to 45 days before your trip and get a 100% credit to be used to a future adventure. And for existing bookings that travel through March 31st, 2022, final payment isn’t due until 90 days prior to the adventure start date.
Update: The Adventures By Disney website now notes, “For existing bookings that travel through March 31, 2022, final payment will now be due 65 days prior to the adventure start date.”
