Lowered prices question

Does Disney do anything in the way of credits if the price of your cruise goes down after you have paid in full?

If you want to take advantage of a price reduction after your paid in full date, you generally must cancel and rebook. So, you need to factor in the penalty for cancelling after the PIF date to take advantage of the reduction to decide if it's worth it.

Short answer, usually no.

It has nothing to do with whether or not you have paid in full, it has to do with whether or not you are past the penalty date.

Many people pay in full earlier than required in order to do on line booking at 120, 105, or 90 days. If a price reduction is announced before the start of the penalty period, whether or not you are paid in full AND your (or TA if used) contacts DCL, they will refund the difference to whatever means you used to pay for the cruise. If after the penalty date, most specials are "new bookings only" so yo would have to cancel and rebook which means incurring the penalty.

However, it never hurts to call and see what they say. There have been occasions when special rates like KSF were applied to existing bookings!
