    What is the benefit of booking a vacation package vs purchasing the room and tickets separately? Thanks!

    Hi Susan!

    There are different options for planning your Walt Disney World vacation, and it all depends on how you are going to spend your time.  

    If you are purchasing a room only reservation, it's likely that you already have theme park admission, or are using admission from a previous visit.  There are even some guests that visit the Walt Disney World Resort without even stepping food in the parks.  These reservations are for those people.  Sometimes, you can also get a better deal with a room only promotion and then adding tickets on your own, but you'd need to to the math on those particular situations.  

    For us, the vacation package is the way to go!  We often book under a package promotion which we feel gives us a great value.  We are also HUGE fans of the Disney Dining Plan, so we know the bulk of our vacation cost upfront.

    Have a magical vacation!
