Walt Disney World this week shared an update on its travel advisor commissions.
Commissions that were paid on the commission protected package will not be subtracted from any new commission for rebooking the guests for arrival after Dec. 31, 2020.
The policy applies to travel agencies that were entitled to commission protection on a Walt Disney Travel Company?package with an arrival date April 1, 2020 to July 10, 2020.
As Walt Disney World has continued its phased opening, with more resort hotels beggining to take new bookings. Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort has begun accepting bookings for arrivals beginning March 22; Disney’s Beach Club Resort for arrivals beginning May 30; and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge for arrivals beginning June 6.
Meanwhile, Disney Cruise Lines has canceled some scheduled sailings longer than seven nights “based on the conditional sail order provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
That includes the 13-night Transatlantic sailing onboard the Disney Magic on May 9, 2021, the nine-night Alaska sailing onboard the Disney Wonder on June 28, 2021 and the nine-night Southern Caribbean Sailing onboard the Disney Fantasy.
Guests that have paid their reservation in full can either receive a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing prior to May 31, 2022, or a full refund. Guests that have not paid their reservations in full will automatically receive a refund of what they have paid so far.
Additionally, Disney Cruise Line will continue to protect travel professionals’ commission on the original sailing that is paid in full and cancelled.
For reservations that were booked using a Future Cruise Credit from a sailing previously cancelled by Disney Cruise Line, commission on a second sailing will be earned only if the sailing commences and will not be earned if the sailing is cancelled by Disney Cruise Line. In this instance, commission will be paid following the standard commission payment process.
