Disney Cruise Line has updated its travel agent commission policy for sailings booked starting on Jan. 1, 2019.

Most of the changes impact the travel agency revenue thresholds that agencies have to reach in 2019 to secure a certain commission percentage on their bookings for 2020.

Disney announced the changes in an email to its travel partners on Wednesday, writing “As is common in the travel industry, we periodically evaluate commission levels and make adjustments.”

Starting on Jan. 1, 2019, the new brackets are as follow for 2019 agency revenue:

  • Agencies with a 2019 revenue of less than $78,000 will have a 2020 commission rate of 10 percent.
  • Agencies with a revenue between $78,000 and $153,999 will have a 2020 commission rate of 11 percent.
  • Agencies with a revenue between $154,000 and $337,999 will have a rate of 12 percent.
  • Agencies between $338,000 and $491,999 will have a rate of 13 percent.
  • Agencies between $492,000 and $658,999 will have a rate of 14 percent.
  • Agencies between $659,000 and $1,686,999 will have a rate of 15 percent.
  • Agencies earning $1,687,000 or higher will have a rate of 16 percent.

The line made similar changes last year.

Earlier this year, Disney Cruise also announced changes to its final payment and cancellation policy, including requiring final payment for all guests in standard rooms on sailings of one- to five-nights 90 days prior to arrival.
