Disney has not yet confirmed hotel rates for 2024.  That said, package prices will most likely be lower than what we currently advertise. If that is the case, we will update everyone’s package rates.  In the unlikely case that rates increase by $50 per room per night or more over our estimated rates and you wish to cancel, we will offer a full refund of your deposit.
