We’ve also gotten some updates about bookings opening up for early 2023 cruises, the return of cruises from New Orleans in 2022, and more. Now we’ve got some important updates for those planning cruises in the near future when it comes to final payment and cancellation policies.
As Disney Cruise Line sailings remain suspended, policies are constantly changing.
Sailings are currently canceled through August 2021, but Disney hopes to resume limited operations in the fall. And just today, they announced that a special staycation experience is on its way to the UK! So what does all of this mean for the policies currently in place?
Last year, Disney fans in southern California were treated to a rare chance to check out Disney memorabilia straight from the Walt Disney Archives.
Thanks to Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, any Disney history buff could visit to see the exclusive exhibit, Inside the Walt Disney Archives: 50 Years of Preserving the Magic. But, due to California health regulations, the museum has had to close and reopen on a few occasions. Because of this, the exhibit was originally extended to April 25th and now it’s getting another bump as the museum reopens to the public.
Last year, Disney fans in Southern California got a rare opportunity to see some unique Disney memorabilia straight from the Walt Disney Archives.
This opportunity was all thanks to the Inside the Walt Disney Archives: 50 Years of Preserving the Magic exhibit at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, CA. That exhibit was initially set to end in August 2020, but after a months-long closure due to the global health crisis, the museum reopened and extended the exhibit until September.
We’re still awaiting the day when we can sail aboard the Disney Cruise Line again. Disney has noted that the cruise line would be the last of its businesses to resume, and that its return to cruising would be delayed by the CDC’s new requirements.
At the moment, Disney Cruise Line has canceled sailings through March of 2021 and select sailings longer than 7 nights as well. To give some flexibility to those with cruises planned for this year, Disney has also adopted some temporarily final payment extensions and has gradually been extending its cruise date flexibility option. And now both of those have been extended once again.
If you are an Annual Passholder on a monthly payment plan, you may have already received or may soon be receiving some important information from Disney regarding extensions to your pass.
Want an annual pass that gives you access to the theme parks in Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort?
Then, you’ll want to look at the Disney Premier Passport. This unique Annual Pass grants you admission to the Disney World and Disneyland theme parks for a whole year without blackout dates, and even has special features like access to the Disney World water parks. Disney Premier Passport holders looking to visit Disneyland this year haven’t exactly had the opportunity to do so these past few months since Disneyland closed earlier this year and has not yet reopened.
While Disneyland has already extended the expiration dates for its park tickets, we’ve been waiting to hear about other types of tickets including Military Salute Tickets.
So far, there hasn’t been any word on whether or not these tickets would be extended. But today, Disneyland has updated its website and provided new details on when 2020 Military Salute Tickets are set to expire.
Now that Disney World is reopening July 11th and July 15th and Disneyland has a proposed reopening date, both resorts have stated they will be utilizing a new reservation system which will require all guests — including Annual Passholders — obtain a reservation to enter a park in advance of their visit.
We’ve been receiving a TON of questions about how this new reservation system will affect Annual Passholders since Disney hasn’t released very much info on the subject yet!
Good news! We finally have some information to share with our readers who are waiting to find out about their DVC points as well as an update on annual dues!
Disney World has just amended a few of its Disney Vacation Club policies that include some point extensions and a plan they’re currently working on regarding yearly fees! They sent out an email to share the news.
