    Cancelling trip then re-booking; Is it allowed?

    Hello;

    I was wondering....Let's say I book a trip for October 2011 with a moderate resort, tickets, and meal plan. The one I am looking at is approx. $2,800. I put down a deposit, and pay it off month by month.

    But....next August they offer this moderate resort with a free meal plan.
    I would obviously want to cancel and re-book with the free meal plan. Do you call Disney Reservations and tell them your intentions and they will reimburse the diference of the meal plan? Do you cancel, wait for a refund, and then re-book with the free meal plan? Someone else surely must have run into this before.

    What is the best course of action?? Thanks.

    Don't cancel - Disney is very willing to make adjustments as new plans and discounts come out. It's quite standard for me to make a room reservation at the rack rate, pay the single night's deposit, and then change it all out to a discounted rate when they release it. Quite often I'll also up my category of room as I now can afford a moderate where before I could only afford a value. Don't worry - Disney is great to work with on these kind of changes!

    I would recommend using a free travel agency like Fairy Godmother Travel: Fairy Godmother Travel They will monitor your room reservation and update you with the cheapest price for you, so it makes it even easier on you

    To be fair, all (or at least most) travel agencies are free to the user. They get their money from the airlines and hotels that they book.

    Yes indeed, just keep the original reservation and if/when you get to the 45 day mark where you have to pay in full, call them up and ask to change dates. They will then apply the monies you have paid thus far to your new booking without penalty.
    Please consider the environment before printing useless emails

    It's important to note that while the OP is paying for a package deal and does have to pay up at the 45 day mark, I'm buying just a room, and only have to put one night down and then pay the rest on arrival.
