If your Walt Disney vacation is starting over the next few days you’re likely wondering what happens in the event that your plans need to be cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew.  It has been reported that Walt Disney World is waiving cancellation fees for onsite guests unable to make their trip because of the storm.

Disney is currently working with guests who have stays booked between Wednesday, October 5th through Sunday, October 9th, who need to cancel their plans due to weather.   However, guests should note that this is currently being handled on a case per case basis but that many guests have reported being offered refunds upon request.

Guests planning a visit around Hurricane Matthew are advised to familiarize themselves with Disney’s Hurricane Policy.  It states that when a Hurricane Warning is issued by the National Hurricane Center for the Orlando area- or at your place of residence and this warning falls within 7 days of your arrival date, you may call in advance to reschedule or cancel your Walt Disney World vacation package or room reservation.  Full details of the policy can be found here.
