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

    we booked a 6 day Disney resort, tickets and dining plan package. My question is if I want to extend my resort stay by 2 days, do I have to extend my dining plan as well? or can I just extend the hotel but not the rest of the package?

    Hi Xin,

    Thank you for bringing this question to planDisney!

    First, let us celebrate your booking of a vacation package to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! At this time, if you extend your stay by two days, you would keep the Disney Dining Plan as well. You could also make a new room-only reservation for those additional nights, but you might have to change rooms when that new reservation starts. If you choose to make a new reservation, you could always check with the cast members at the resort hotel to see if they could allow you to remain in the same room. 

    As you continue to plan, keep an eye on the Special Offers. In the past, I have been able to modify a reservation to take advantage of a special offer. Keep in mind that modifications are not guaranteed, but it does not hurt to check! We are always looking for budget-friendly options. And, we occasionally like to do a split stay at two different resort hotels. It allows us to experience double the fun in one trip.

    If you decide to do a split stay and both resort hotels are in the Disney Resorts Collection, be sure to inquire about luggage transfer. We have appreciated this service in the past - on the morning of check-out, we drop our luggage off at the Bell Services desk and ask them to transfer it to our next resort hotel. And we head to a theme park to enjoy the day. At the end of the day, we head to the new resort hotel. If you have done online check-in, you should be able to just proceed to your room, use your MagicBand, MagicBand+, or My Disney Experience Mobile App to unlock your room door and then call Bell Services to ask them to bring your luggage to your room. As always, remember to confirm the availability of services at your resort hotel when you arrive.

    Xin, I am sending a little pixie dust to help you make a decision. Whatever you choose, remember that memories are precious. If it is possible, stay a few more days in the magic! Looking at your dates, you might be able to enjoy the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival!

    Magic and memories,
