    I would like to extend my already existing stay How can I do this?

    Hi Steven!

    Welcome to planDisney! September is a great time to visit with daytime temperatures finally coming down a bit, Halloween decorations adorning Magic Kingdom, and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival in full swing!

    This year, the fall promises to be even more exciting with the Golden Anniversary Celebration of the Walt Disney World Resort kicking off on October 1, 2021! Experience new attractions and classic favorites, spectacular new nighttime shows, and celebratory EARidescent decor and magic throughout the Walt Disney World Resort! Because of all this excitement, most Disney Resort Collection Hotels are already fully booked. That said, if there is availability, you can add days to your resort reservation or package by calling.

    I know hold times have been lengthy recently. I recommend calling first thing in the morning when the phone lines open at 7 AM  Eastern, and make sure you have adequate time to wait on hold. I use my cell phone and put it on speaker so I can listen to Disney music while I get other things accomplished.

    You can also book a separate room-only reservation online if you see availability, and then call to have a note made that you have two reservations. Since rooms are hard to find for that timeframe, this is what I would do and book that reservation online as soon as I saw it. If it is the same room type and view, you can usually have the two reservations combined into one, and you shouldn’t have to move rooms. If you have two different room types such as one preferred view and one standard view, you will need to plan to move rooms.

    I hope you can snag the room you are hoping for, Steven. Sending you pixie dust you can extend your vacation!

    Have a Magical Day!
