Several years ago, Disney created the Disney Vacation Account as a savings plan to help people save money for their Disney vacations. You could put funds away on your own schedule or calculate how much to be withdrawn each week or month to get you to your vacation goal. Now you will have to squirrel away your Disney dollars another way because Disney has suddenly discontinued this service.
No new accounts could be opened starting July 25, 2017. If you had a Disney Vacation Account they are offering several options for you to choose from:
OPTION 1 – Use the total amount in your account to purchase a Disney Gift Card. This must be done by September 27, 2017. If you choose this option Disney will add an extra 5% on your gift card. This will be in the form an e-card and emailed to you.
OPTION 2 – Redeem your balance toward the Disney Vacation of your choice.
OPTION 3 – Do nothing. Starting September 27, 2017, Disney will close the accounts and process refunds. Refunds will go back to the original form of payment or by check to your mailing address.
Those that choose this option will receive a bonus of 2% or $5.00 (whichever is greater), which will be placed on a Disney Gift Card and emailed to you. The bonus will be delivered separately from the refund.
OPTION 4 – Request a refund before the refund process described in Option 3 is completed, and you will be issued a full refund of your unused balance that will be refunded to your original form of payment or by check to your mailing address. With this option, you will not be eligible to receive the Disney Gift Card.
