Disney extends hurricane policy through season

As the 2006 Atlantic Hurricane Season stretches on into the peak months, expect more and more suppliers to offer hurricane cancellation policies. The latest additions to the ever-growing list of companies include Disney Destinations and the Walt Disney Travel Co.

In the event a hurricane warning is issued by the National Hurricane Center for the Orlando area or for the guests place of residence within seven days of the scheduled arrival date, the guest can reschedule or cancel the Disney vacation package without any fees.

The policy also applies to most WDW Resort room-only reservations booked directly with Disney as well as reservations at Disneys Vero Beach Resort in Vero Beach, Fla., or Disneys Hilton Head Resort in Hilton Head, S.C., if a hurricane warning is issued for those destinations.

Guests who purchased packages that include products or services provided by airlines, hotels, car rental agencies or vacation insurance companies will continue to be responsible for any non-refundable payments plus cancellation and change fees assessed by the suppliers.

For a complete description of the policy, visit www.disneyworld.com and click on Tropical Weather Policy under Plan and Prepare.
