    Ok, we are to leave from Philly at 10:30am on Fri Sept 19th we are staying till Sept 26th.

    Here's the question does anyone know if our flight gets moved to the 20th Sat will Disney bump our vacation to the 27th???

    Usairways is already rescheduling flights but my husband wants to see what happens.

    I did purchase the trip insurance and that leads to the second question will the refund me the one day park hopper tixs and room for the friday night if we can't stay sat for either reason: no flights back to philly on the 27th or no room the nite of the 26th?? Or do they only refund if you miss the whole vacation??

    Will be checking with my travel agent tomorrow. But would appreciate any help!!

    I have not heard of them doing anything like that, I don't think that they are obligated because of a weather change....best bet would be to call them and find out! Good luck!

    I would call, but I don't think "acts of God" are covered. You may just lose that one day. Good luck and be safe.

    I did a little research for you, and this is what it says on the Disney World website about the travel insurance...

    Vacation Protection Plan

    For Travel Dates 1/1/2003 – 12/31/2003 Insure America’s Specialized Vacation Protection Plan offers a low-cost insurance plan to protect you in the event that your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation is canceled or unexpectedly interrupted. Trip Insurance is included for children at no additional cost.* Insure American’s toll-free number is (800) 826-3899

    This trip insurance pays covered financial losses related to this package that are incurred if you must cancel your trip or interrupt your travel because of a covered illness, injury, or death of you, a family member, or traveling companion. Insurance is nonrefundable once deposit has been received.

    $500 Baggage Delay
    This pays for the purchase of covered essential items if your bags are delayed in transit for more than twenty-four (24) hours after your arrival at the vacation destination.

    $600 Travel Delay

    $15,000 Emergency Medical Transportation
    Pays for evacuation to nearest adequate medical facility and up to $5,000 for medical escort. The plan also includes transportation of remains upon death.

    $15,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment
    The plan covers death and loss of limb or eyesight within 180 days of an accident during the trip.
