    Can you just book a hotel and then go back and book tickets

    Welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth! Thank you for dropping in as you begin planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We are happy to answer your questions and help make your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth practically perfect in every way.

    You are on the brink of adventure! When you are ready to start planning, you can select your Disney Resorts Collection hotel online, starting with the dates you'd like to go and the number of people in your room. Following the prompts, you can find the best resort for your family and make your reservation. The process includes the chance to add theme park tickets and the Disney Dining Plan, but you can also skip these and add them later if you would like. 

    When you are ready, you can purchase your theme park tickets online. Make sure to link them to your My Disney Experience account and assign them to each person for a seamless experience popping from your resort to the parks with your MagicBand+.

    Did you know if you book your room and a Special Offer is announced that would save you money on your trip, you may be able to update your reservation? Simply log into your My Disney Experience account, find your resort reservation under "My Plans," and select "Modify." You can select the same dates and resort, and the return screen will show you the standard rate and any special offers available for your selections. I like the assurance of not needing to wait for something to come along; if it does, I can easily update my plans.

    Please come back to planDisney with any other questions as you embark on your adventure.

    There's the whole world at your feet. Have a magical time!
