Travel insurance can help protect you from many things that could happen during a theme park trip. You can get coverage for canceled and interrupted trips, medical services during travel in case of sickness or injury, and lost and delayed baggage.
When planning a Disney World trip, it’s a good idea to get an insurance policy to protect you against any unforeseen circumstances.
Most third-party travel providers can offer you travel protection plans for your trip, including a trip to Disney World.
In this article, I break down Disney World’s Insurance policy and discuss if you should consider getting Disney’s Travel Plan protection when you make Disney World tickets or Hotel reservations.

05. Drawbacks of Disney World Insurance Policy
The most significant difference between Disney Travel Protection Plan and third-party insurance is that Disney only covers you while you are on its premises. This means if you want to visit other sites in Orlando, such as Universal Studios or Sea World, your remaining vacation will not be covered.
Travel insurance is one of those purchases that you think you’ll never need, but it is well worth the money so you and your family can have peace of mind when you travel and protection if something goes wrong.
Disney World’s travel protection plan is probably the best option if you are not planning on doing any other sight seeing outside of the theme park.
The most practical option for anyone who plans to visit other theme parks in Orlando or spend a significant amount of time outside the theme park would be to get a travel plan from a third-party travel agency.
I hope this article provided some insight into Disney’s insurance policy and help will help you determine whether or not you would benefit from purchasing the Disney travel protection plan.
