What Happens When You Cancel a Disneyland Reservation?

Having to cancel a fun day at Disneyland is an unfortunate event, but sometimes you have no other choice. 

But, you may be asking, will I get in trouble if I flat out cancel my reservation?

You will not face any penalties if you cancel a Disneyland park reservation. However, if you have booked a hotel room or a vacation package, you will need to cancel enough days in advance to get a full refund. Otherwise, you may not get all of your money back. 

What Will Happen if I Cancel a Disneyland Park Reservation?

There are no penalties for canceling a Disneyland theme park reservation. 

Your ticket will still be valid, and you will not suffer any fees. 

Basically, if you cancel, all that will happen is you’ll have to pick new dates to visit the park when you are ready to do so. 

What Will Happen if I Cancel a Disneyland Room Reservation?

If you booked a room at a Disneyland hotel that was not part of a vacation package, you should cancel the reservation at least five days before your stay begins. 

If you do, you will get all of your money back, except for possible third-party fees. 

If you cancel within five days of your stay, though, you will not receive a full refund. 

Instead, Disneyland will charge you for the first night’s stay of your reservation as well as taxes. 

But, you will get the rest of your money back. 

What Will Happen if I Cancel a Disneyland Vacation Package?

The rules for canceling a Disneyland vacation package are more stringent than for canceling just a hotel room. 

Generally, if you need to cancel a vacation package, you should try to do so 30 days before the first day of your stay at Disneyland. 

Canceling this early will get you a full refund. 

Conversely, if you cancel between 29 and 5 days before your reservation begins, Disneyland will charge you a $200 fee. 

And those who cancel less than four days before the beginning of their reservation will not get any of their money back for their vacation package.

Do I Have to Cancel a Disneyland Park Reservation if I Can’t Go?

Most people won’t face any repercussions if they fail to cancel a park reservation and then don’t show up. 

Mainly, whether you really need to cancel depends on if you are a Magic Key holder. 

If you do not have a Magic Key Pass, there will be no consequences for not canceling a reservation. 

However, if you do have a Magic Key, you should be more careful. 

Disney states that any Magic Key holder who fails to cancel a reservation three times in a 90-day time frame will not be able to make any new park reservations for 30 days. 

Yet, if you already have a reservation scheduled within those 30 days, Disneyland will not cancel it. 

You just can’t make a new reservation until the 30-day probation ends. 

You should also remember, though, that although Disney doesn’t penalize most people for not canceling their reservations, you should still cancel if you can. 

Disneyland only allows so many people into the park, so if your reservation were for a day that’s full, your space in the park would just stay empty. 

What I mean is that if you cancel ahead of time, someone else can use your reservation time to enjoy the park. 

Can I Get a Refund on a Park Ticket if I Cancel My Reservation?

Unfortunately, Disneyland does not give out any refunds for park tickets. 

So, if you have a Disneyland ticket, it’s best to just hold onto it until you get to visit Disneyland again. 

And it doesn’t matter how long you keep that ticket because you can renew an expired ticket for a fee. 

Or you can transfer any unused Disneyland tickets to someone else if you can’t use them. 

But, keep in mind that you can not transfer or give a multiday ticket to someone else if you have already used it.
