what happens if flights are postponed due to bad weather...do you just lose your disney days you missed?

So sorry to say yes if you don't have that insurance and if I was going to have to fly into FL from anywhere during the summer and winter I would get trip insurance....

do you have to go through a travel agent for the insurance then...or is that through the airline itself?

I have no idea about direct through the airline. I am a TA and use a company called Allainz. If you want I can price it for you. PM me.

If you book through Disney you can get travel insurance through them as well.  My friend had her flight cancelled and they came in the next day.  Disney adjusted her package and she had no problem.

Hopefully one of the TAs in our group will answer this cause this was a recent topic in one of my FB groups. Apparently rules are changing involving trip insurance and being 2 days out. I dont know the specific details but from what they were saying you would loose it. Not sure if that is for just trips that have to be cancelled.

The company that I usually write has this as one of their covered items. Its for more than a 24 hour delay. You have to read the specifics of the policy and make sure that it fits your needs.


"Complete Cessation of Services by Your Common Carrier for 24 or more hours due to a strike, natural disaster, bad weather or FAA mandated shutdown."

I would say you have to have insurance

You really need to weigh that option and do some math. We are in NJ but can fly out of 3 nearby airports. So in the event of snow the longest delays here have been less than a day. If you have an extra day with no park the only thing you lose is the room rate which isn't all that much.
