  1. We have had to cancel our plans and would like to commend DisneyWorld for making the process so easy. Disney remains #1 in our books and there is no doubt we will return when this is over. Thank you Disney you are always amazing to deal with. Believe me when I say this was not the case with some of the other cancellations we have had to make. You remain the top example of a company who understands customer service. Thank you again! …..and have a magical day. 🙂
