    When booking a flight w Disney in a vacation package, is there a fee for checked baggage and so you get seat selection for free or is that an up charge also

    Hello Lisa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so happy you stopped by with your question!

    Booking a vacation package through Walt Disney World Resort makes things feel so much easier and convenient, and who doesn't love that?

    Special offers are always being updated on Walt Disney World Resort's website, and I am always checking for the best deals for my family's vacations. It's helpful to get a package deal with your Theme Park Tickets, Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservations, and adding a Disney Dining Plan. That way, once your vacation begins, it's all smooth sailing because everything has been taken care of!

    When booking a flight with your package through Walt Disney World Resort, the Cast Member who is helping you will ask you which airport you would like to leave from and return to. They will then work with you to find a flight that works best for you and your party. Flights are to be paid in full during the booking process. You will need to provide names as they appear on official identification cards or passports, as well as birth dates of the party traveling. Walt Disney World Resort does not include free checked bags; that is really dependent on the checked bag policy of the airline you choose to go with. If you would like to choose your own seats, they can partner with the air team to work that out for you. There is a fee for this, but it is also dependent on the airline you choose. If you have any questions at all, you can call and speak with a Cast Member at Disney Resort Reservations and they will be happy to help you!

    Lisa, I hope you have the most magical vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
