  1. I purchased park hopper tickets for September. We are using them and I want to find out how to get a refund for the difference in price since the park hopper option is suspended.

  2. I made down payment on season passes for 3 in February, paid February and March payments. Have called and asked them to refund seeing as how I am not excited about exposing my 75 year old mother and 5 year old granddaughter to COVID even if they do reopen. Have talked to 2 different customer service team members who have put in requests, still have heard nothing.

  3. What about park tickets we bought for period that you where closed, can we get refund for out tickets? Because with new restitution, how can we plan to use them. Are you extention ticks into next year?

  4. I’m wondering about the “Early Morning Magic” option we purchased, as well as park hopping. I also hope they put out a list of all restaurants that will (or will not) be open, for making reservations.

    1. Hi Rekha! Currently the Discover Disney tickets have been extended through July 30th, but will absolutely post with any further updates!

  5. Disney should let guests have the ability to cancel or move their trip to the future. DVc point rentals who booked far in advance are being forced to attend a truncated Disney experience. Possibly some lawsuits coming. If they alter the experience they should provide a way to get a refund or change dates for everyone affected. It seems they keep cutting more and more of the experience. Another idea is cancel everything and let people book new reservations who are fully willing to go at this point

  6. I paid a $200 deposit for each of my packages last October. Balance of over $10,000 was paid beginning of March for our April 1st arrival. Disney cancelled our reservations and refunded 100% of the balance we paid. I only got $34 of the $400 deposit back.

  7. We have park hoppers and water parks. Will they refund the water park up charge and can we still park hop with the reservation system? Our trip is scheduled for July 11th! 😮

    1. Same on the hopper question. Especially curious if all park hours are reduced if that will have any affect. We usually go early and stay late and bounce between parks 🙁

  8. I’m curious when Disney will start refunding the Annual Passholders they charged during the 2nd half of March, right after they closed? They made a statement saying if you were charged between certain dates that they would refund the amount. That has yet to happen.

  9. So excited too. Although, if they don’t have park hours for the hard ticket event we paid for, I don’t see how they can’t refund.
