    I have booked a hotel reservation with no tickets earlier. Now I want t purchase tickets. Can I change my hotel reservation into a package at this point?

    Hiya, Laurie! I'm so glad you found the second star to the right and followed it straight on to us here at planDisney! 

    Oh boy, you're getting ready to travel to The Most Magical Place on Earth and I'm so excited for you! With The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration in full swing, you're sure to find magic waiting for you around every corner. Take a moment to check out the Beacons of Magic in each of the parks, which light up the night in truly magical ways! Also, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be blooming just in time for you to visit and you won't want to miss seeing the character topiaries or sampling the fresh flavors of the outdoor kitchens.

    Laurie, it looks like you're ready to change your hotel reservation into a vacation package! One of the easiest ways to do this would be to make a new reservation as a vacation package with tickets and then cancel your room-only reservation. Please make sure that your Disney Resorts Collection hotel is available for your dates as the availability can often change. In fact, this is why I like to book my vacation package before I cancel my room-only reservation! 

    If your dates for your desired resort hotel look to be unavailable, sometimes just shifting your dates one or two days can open up a whole new world of possibilities! However, there are times when we just need a little extra pixie dust sprinkled on our situation. If these options don't seem to work for you, my best piece of advice would be to call one of the wonderful Cast Members. Cast Members are often like real-life fairy godparents who always try to stretch their wands just a bit farther for us! If you'd like to call a Cast Member about changing your room-only reservation into a vacation package, I'd recommend calling them when phone lines open at 7:00 AM since their magic can sometimes be in high demand.

    Once you add your tickets to your vacation package, make sure to also book your Theme Park Reservations! This way, you can make sure you've reserved the parks you wish to visit on each day of your trip. And while you're waiting for your magical vacation, take some time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app! A little like a magic wand, this will help you to unlock everything that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer. My favorite reasons to use this while on vacation are to view park maps, check wait times for rides, and mobile order food. This is a great way to minimize waits and maximize the fun!

    Laurie, I'm sending you faith, trust, and pixie dust as you put some final touches on your vacation. If you have any other questions, please visit us again. After all - you've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
