    In 2009 we bought 3, 7 day tickets with the no expiration. We used 2 days. Now we are a family of 4. Our youngest is 4 yrs old, so she will need tickets. Are we able to turn those those tickets plus hers in to a vacation package with hotel and dining?

    Hey Jocelyn-

    Your past self was genius to buy theme park tickets with the No Expiration option. Tickets are more expensive now and your pixie-dusted investment just saved you money. Honestly, you will likely reinvest that savings in some great souvenirs or yummy tummy treats like the Carrot Cake Cookie at The Writer’s Stop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    Here is the scoop. When you purchase a Magic Your Way Vacation package, you book it YOUR WAY. The package starts with hotel and then you may add a Disney Dining Plan, theme park tickets or both. Everything is linked together through your Disney account on the My Disney Experience website or mobile application. There you can arrange your Advance Dining reservations, FastPass+ selections and customize your MagicBands. Be sure to link your existing tickets as well as any newly purchased tickets to your My Disney Experience account.

    In your case book the vacation package with just dining and hotel for your family of four. Since three of you have tickets already and plan to use the five remaining days, just purchase an additional ticket for your four-year-old princess. As a Walt Disney World Resort hotel guest, you will receive MagicBands for each member on the hotel reservation. MagicBands are a fantastic wearable technology allowing you to manage your vacation experience with a simple "touch".

    Since your visit in 2009 the Magic Kingdom Park has added the New Fantasyland. Take a visit through the Darling’s house before Peter Pan’s Flight, dine at the Beast’s castle at the Be Our Guest Restaurant and gather some gems at the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Also Disney's Hollywood Studios will allow you to blast off on Star Tours - The Adventure Continues with upgrades showcasing over 50 new 4-D story combinations and sing along with the gang during the new Disney Junior-Live on Stage! show.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
