Do you have a trip planned for Disney World later this year? Planning on making modifications? You may not be able to change your dates!

Resort Modifications

Disney has a clear cancellation and refund policy. Resort and ticket package cancellations must be made 30 days prior for a full refund. If you have a room only reservation, you must cancel 5 days prior to arrival.

What if you want to just change something to your reservation? For example, maybe you want to add or remove someone from your reservation, or add or remove a day.

Usually, this is not a problem as long as there is availability for the dates you would like to add or the room accommodates the amount of people you want to have on the reservation.

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is located near Magic Kingdom. Guests travel all over to camp at The Fort and be near the magic. Camping here, at The Fort, is like no other! You are able to relax and enjoy the “wilderness” with only be steps away from the park.

It is CONFIRMED that Disney has just put in a place a new policy for reservations at The Fort. Guests are no longer able to make modification to their reservations from October 26th through November 1st 2022!

This includes adding and subtracting dates along with adding and subtracting people. A campsite can hold up to 10 people. If they are not on the reservation at this time, they CANNOT be added! It was confirmed that ABSOLUTELY NO MODIFICATIONS CAN BE DONE!

If you want to add or subtract people or dates to your existing reservation, you must CANCEL and re-book your reservation. I (Heather) would not recommend canceling your reservation.

You must cancel and re-book your Fort Wilderness Reservation in order to make any changes to it from October 26th through November 1st 2022.

If you have ever stayed at The Fort before, you know it is very hard to get in, especially late October and into November. If you cancel your reservation, you will most likely not get another one to replace it.

There is rumor that this may go into the rest of November and December. Be sure to plan accordingly if you area heading to The Fort!

  1. I just tried to take a day off my reservation over labor day, and it was denied. I was never told this policy was in place, particularly over Labor day. This is very poor customer service. I’m stuck with a day I can’t use, and they don’t get a day back they can sell. A lose-lose.

  2. It’s not just for October and November 2022. I tried to modify my check in from 8/30 to 9/2 and they would not let me. I ended up having to cancel instead of paying for 3 nights that I could not stay. Stinks!

  3. It’s definitely a hardship for me. I booked a cabin with just me, because I never know which kids are going to be able to get off work, etc. We have several adopted kids and I take them in turns. I guess I’ll have to cancel my cabin if they won’t allow me to add kids once they know their work schedules.

  4. I have a feeling this is due to people and travel agents hoarding sites and blocks of sites for popular dates as soon as booking opens for those dates. Some people dont know for sure when they are going to be able to go so they book more than they need. Travel agents are creating scarcity so that the only way to get a site those dates is by booking through them. Kind of like scalping tickets.
