    Marybeth from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    If I book a room and tickets on the holiday discount will I be able to change hotels if a room comes available in another hotel?

    Hello, Marybeth! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney.

    How exciting that you're planning to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth during the most Magical season! Marybeth, I love this question because every time I'm planning my next Walt Disney World adventure, I agonize over which Disney Resort Hotel to select because they each have a distinctive vibe! 

    Now, let's jump into your question. Marybeth, you're a guest after my own heart because I keep the Special Offers page of the Walt Disney World website bookmarked. The quick answer to your question is maybe. For example, if you're considering the Disney Dining Promo Card package or maybe the Disney+ Subscribers offer, you'll notice when you expand the offer to read more details there is a line that states, "The number of packages available for this offer is limited." While it's possible you could seamlessly switch resorts (and just pay the difference where applicable) this also means that should a room in a different resort become available, that room might not be eligible for the offer because the number of packages has maxed out. Typically, while it may require you to wait on hold for a bit, in these cases I recommend calling to speak to a Cast Member who can verify that the discount applies. 

    My best recommendation would be to book whichever offer works best for you at a Disney Resort Hotel that you'd be comfortable staying at, knowing changing hotels is only a possibility, not a guarantee. You could continue to peruse the website for room availability at your preferred resort and call in to check if that applies to your current discount

    Marybeth, I'll be wishing on a star that no matter where you stay at Walt Disney World you can soak up every sprinkling of pixie dust and have a wonderful vacation. If you have any additional questions, just come on back to planDisney. We are all ears!
