Can you change a bounceback booking later?

Quick question - if a person books a future trip while at a resort using a bounceback offer, and then later their plans change, can you change the dates? Or would they only honor the specific dates you booked while actually at the resort, and making any changes from home would result in losing the bounceback discount?

I'm here now and I know I was to come back in Oct/Nov but I can't be sure of my dates yet this far in advance.

Thanks!!

As long as your new dates still fall within the original bounceback offer dates, they will honor it.

You'll most likely have to wait until you get there. Bouncebacks are not always offered and they change monthly.

I was able to change mine 3 times. The dates fell within the time frame and they honored the discount

Okay, I already am 40, but if I were to change my name, how would you know it was me?

I was there last week. The info on "bounceback" was included in the packet I received at check-in. I didn't realize it was in there until a friend who had been there in January told me it was inside the booklet in the packet. I called on my check-out day and booked 5 nts. at CBR and when I got back home and looked at the calendar, I changed to a different 5 nts. at CSR. I brought the date info home with me so I could make changes as needed and know what dates are available.

The only thing I would worry about if I want to make another change is whether or not there are rooms left with the rate special for the resort/dates I am interested in.

As the pp said, as long as the new dates fall within the BB dates (and the resort you want for the new dates is available under the BB), it shouldn't be a problem. If you need to change dates after you return home and a regular reservation CM says it can't be done or can't check availability, ask to speak to someone in guest services and they should be able to help you.

Jemmouse, I just went to go get the flyer out my bag, but I can't find it anywhere. We switched rooms this morning and I must have left it in thenold room. I'll pick up another at the front desk and post the dates

In April it will almost certainly be the same bounceback. This one usually runs until August(ish) or so

I'd love the dates too

If I book a bounceback offer when I am there, I know I can adjust the dates (if within the dates offered), but can I change the resort? Right now, We are still trying to figure out whether it is worth the cost of the additional plane tickets for us to bring the kids when we return in Sept. DH has a conference and if the kids go we will stay value and pay for their plane tickets (if they are a good deal). If we can't get a good deal on plane tickets and don't take the kids, I would rather stay in a mod. I am not sure that we will know what we are doing by the time we go in April and that is why I am wondering about the ability to switch resorts after the bounceback offer has already been booked.

Can you book multiple BB stays? I know you can change it later if there is still availability, but if I have two possible trip dates in mind, can I go ahead and book both? (and cancel one later) In exchange Disney gets to borrow my extra deposit money interest-free...

each adult 18+ can book a bounceback. So if there's 2 adults in a room you can each book one then just cancel the one you don't want

Maybe. As long as the resort you want to change to was included in the bounce back offer and there is availability.
