Question about split stays and deposit
My family is going to Disney in May staying the first 2 nights at POR and with that is our 8 day magic your way tickets. :cool1: On day 3 we are moving over to BC for 5 nights for the rest of our trip.
For the deposit I found it odd we had to put $200 down for the package plus the first nights stay at BC. As we have been contemplating trip insurance I'm trying to remember what she told me about the cancellation policy. I know the balance of the package is due 45 days prior, but I thought she told me the room only at BC is due upon arrival. Is that right? So if we had to cancel for some unforeseen reason under 45 days out would I lose both the 200 and the first night at BC? Seems strange to me they wouldn't lump it all together.
Of course if we had to cancel it would only be to reschedule and I'm not sure if that matters or not.
Does anyone have a link to or more information about their cancellation policies?
Yes - That is correct.
In Disney's eyes a split stay is in fact 2 seperate reservations.
You will be there for one stay - but as far as booking/cancellations go..you are making 2 seperate reservations.
Your first reservation is a *package* - so $200 deposit - balance for that part due 45 days before you arrive.
Your second reservation is a room only - so the deposit is the cost of 1 night and the balance is due when you check in.
Not sure about their policies regarding canceling/re-scheduling.
I think 7 days for a room only and 45 days for a package without penalty.
But like the booking policies - each reservation has a different requirement in terms of cancellation.
I am sure someone will be along shortly with better info on that.
Disney doesn't lump two resort stays together. Even tho they are consecutive, they are considered separate reservations. If you bought trip insurance thru Disney you would have a policy for each reservation. If I were you, I would explore outside trip insurance as it is not as expensive. I have read many postings here of people with extenuating circumstances who had to move their trip and did not lose their deposit. It's considered case by case.
I've listed below the Disney reservation rules published in Mousesavers.com. http://www.mousesavers.com/walt-disn...scounts-codes/ Hope this helps.
