Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does a flight I booked prior to registration count toward qualification for this promotion?
A: No. Qualifying flights must be booked after you register, between August 1-3, 2023.

Q: What will happen after I meet the requirements to earn the 50% off promotion code through this offer?
A: Once you qualify for 50% off promotion code (meaning you registered, booked and traveled on a qualifying round trip or two one-way flight(s) during the applicable dates specified in promotion terms and conditions) we’ll send an email within 10 days. This email lets you know you qualified (woo-hoo!) and includes information on when you can use your promotion code.

Q: How will I receive my promotion code if I earn it?
A: On October 17, 2023, the promotion code will be available in My Account on under Payment and also emailed to the email account associated with the account used to purchase.

Q: When can use my 50% off promotion code if I earn it?
A: You’ll be able to use your promotion code to book between October 17-November 24, 2023 for travel between January 8 – March 6, 2024. Travel is blacked out on February 15-19, February 23-25, and March 3, 2024.

Q: What changes to a reservation would disqualify a flight from qualifying for the 50% off promotion code?
A: Any change to a reservation that falls outside of the promotional requirements (enrollment date, booking date, travel date, etc.) will disqualify the flight from this promotion. In other words, flights must be purchased, and/or changed during the promotional period and the new flight(s) must be flown between August 1-September 30, 2023 to meet the terms and conditions of this promotion.

Q: What is a promotion code?
A: A promotion code can be used to get a discount on flights on or by entering your unique promotion code in the promotion code box on the booking widget. The discount is applied before taxes and fees. If you have entered your unique single-use promotion code in the Promo Code box on or during the Booking Period, then while selecting your flights, savings in the base fare will be visible as a strike-through of the original fare on eligible flights.

Q: Can I use my promotion code more than once?
A: The single-use 50% off promotion code can only be redeemed once and can be redeemed by anyone.

Q: Can I use my promotion code on an existing reservation?
A: Discount is valid on new reservations only.

Q: Can I cancel my flight I purchased with promotion code and use the discount for another flight?
A: No, cancellation to a reservation or changes made to the itinerary after purchase will eliminate qualifications for this promotion and will result in forfeiture of any promotion code savings.

Q: Can I use multiple promotion codes together?
A: The discount is only valid with the provided promotion code and is not combinable with other promotion codes or fares.

Wonder if it has anything to do with them tripling their prices in 10 years? …but this is Disney board…so we don’t have those types of concerns. 🤭
