4) Can Adventures by Disney help me reserve an extra night before or after the adventure dates?

If you wish, Adventures by Disney can reserve an extra night either before or after most adventures at the first and last hotel included in your adventure. That way you may be able to stay in the same room as you did on your adventure. If you arrive early or extend your stay, Adventures by Disney cannot offer you a transfer from/to the airport, or provide meet and greet services at the airport. Our special rates for these additional nights are subject to availability and are only available if booked through Adventures by Disney in conjunction with an adventure package and cannot be combined with any other offer.

5) What if I need to cancel my reservation?

Cancellations can be made by telephone or in writing. The time of cancellation will be the date upon which Adventures by Disney receives notice from you. If you make changes to the vacation commencement date or itinerary, it will be deemed a cancellation. If you cancel, amounts paid, minus cancellation fees and other amounts owed, will be promptly refunded. Your deposit of $300 per person is fully refundable for 10 days. You must notify Adventures by Disney if you decide to cancel within this 10 day period. If you cancel after this period, the following cancellation fees, calculated in days prior to vacation start date, will apply:

90 days or more: $300 per person; 60-89 days: 25% of the land package price; 30-59 days: 50% of the land package price; 0-29 days: 100% of the land package price. No refunds will be made in the event of interruption or cancellation by you after the vacation start date.

The cancellation terms above apply only to the land package price and exclude, among other things, cancellation charges from air carriers. It is strongly recommend that you purchase the Adventures by Disney Vacation Protection Plan as a precaution.

Air transportation can be purchased from Adventures by Disney to and from your home airport in accordance with the scheduled vacation dates and to coordinate with your adventure itinerary.

9) Is there a minimum age for travelers?

Adventures by Disney welcomes children ages 4 and up to discover the stories of the world. However, on some trips, children ages 6+ benefit most from the exciting activities that Adventures by Disney has planned. Because each child is different, call your Adventures by Disney Concierge to discuss which trips will be most fun for your little ones. Please be aware that your younger Junior Adventurers - typically under age 6, may not be able to participate in some scheduled activities due to height, weight and other requirements. Please contact a Concierge Agent for more information.

Adventures identified as 'Adult Only' are restricted to guests 18 years and older. Daily activities for these trips may vary.

Certain activities on select itineraries will present challenges that may not be suitable for Guests with special needs.

Adventures by Disney strongly recommends that Guests requiring assistance be accompanied by a companion who is capable of, and totally responsible for, providing assistance. Neither Adventures by Disney nor our Suppliers may physically lift or assist Guests onto transportation vehicles or otherwise. Please contact a Concierge Agent to discuss your specific needs.

Some countries on Adventures by Disney vacations have specific entry requirements for children under 21 who are traveling internationally with or without both parents.

Adventures by Disney is not responsible for the disruption of travel caused by improper documentation for any travelers, including children traveling without both parents.
