If you PIF can you get your rate reduced?

So if I PIF and a week later a Florida resident rate comes out fir my cruise will they adjust my fare if I call them or am I out of luck?

If its after the PIF date then no they won't reduce your price.

Yes! We paid in full in August (last year) and FL rates came out in September. My TA called me the day the rates came out and changed it for me. Our cat. 8B was not part of the discounted rate, so he switched us to a 4D and we saved $640 on top of getting a better cabin.

I got both an upgrade and a refund onto my ship account when the rate went down after I paid in full. They gave me my choice of Upgrade, Upgrade with a small refund or a refund of the rate change. My TA took care of everything.

Is that only the case with a Florida resident rate?

Some discounts do allow for a reduction in fare on a current reservation - particularly FL resident rates and MIL rates have historically allowed this, sometimes even KSF. In that case, then yes you can request a refund (or onboard credit) after PIF. If it's a special discount - like *GT - that requires a new booking, then you would have to cancel the current reservation and rebook. It's all in the language of the discount offer whether or not it can be applied to current bookings.

If you pay-in-full before the PIF date - you should be able to get any fare reduction that is available to be applied to a current reservation (FL, MIL) as long as it is still prior to the official PIF date. You should even be able to cancel and receive full refund before the PIF date.

Mine was just a rate reduction for the cruise. The cruise was not filling up so they reduced the rates. I always watch the price of the cruise I have booked to make sure the rates do not go down. If they go down I contact my TA to get the change. This does not happen very much on Disney. Most of my Disney cruises the price goes up as time goes by. Our last Disney Cruise almost doubled from the time I booked to the cruise time.

Yes they will! I was paid in full for our April cruise and a month or so prior they had a kids sail free promo and I was able to get a refund for my kids which I just added to my onboard account.

Yes, only for FL rates. Someone posted that recently they were not able to get their cruise adjusted with a military rate. They had to cancel, pay the penalty, then rebook with the discount.

They will for Florida resident rates.

Used to be able to do it with military rates, but that was changed. It's only Florida rates now.
