Want to Book... what if we have to cancel?

Well... the title sort of says it all. We really want to book a vacation but are awaiting our tax return. If the tax return is significantly less than we think it will be, we probably should not go on vacation. I have a PIN and as of yet the price is still showing the same price it did initially, a month ago, before the MYW increases. So I'd like to book ASAP. My question is -- how many days/weeks do we have to cancel after booking, to get a 100% refund?

Thanks!

It's not days after booking, it's 45 days before your arrival date.

So... I would get all money refunded if I booked and then had to cancel, up to 45 days before my arrival?

yes up to 45 days before date of arrival plus you can always just start saving money now or make monthly payment on vacation if possible..

I should add the only thing that is non-refundable if you do quit prior to 45 days out is trip insurance if you purchase it and if I'm not mistaken airfare if booked through Disney.

which is why you shouldn't get trip insurance until final payment.

That's how I have always done it. There may be some downside this way (like if something pops up and you don't yet have insurance). I just don't know. Although I if I book just airfrare and hotel on my own I usually don't bother with insurance.
