    Hi I am planning to stay from Feb 2 to Feb 9. I want to stay the first 4 nights at Carribean and 4 nights at Coronado.I am aware I need to do seperate bookings but when i book the first 4 nights it only allows for a maximum 5 day pass but I want a 7 day?

    Hey Howdy Hey Heath and welcome to planDisney!

    Splitting your vacation up and staying at two separate hotels during your trip sounds like an amazing time. You will be able to experience all Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort has to offer as well as get a taste of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. It is such a great way to scout out where you will be staying next as well! There is one downfall on the split stays and that comes down to your question on park days. There are some details you would need to look into and consider when booking split stays especially when it comes to booking vacation packages. Let's go over your options. 

    The biggest issue when booking split stays is your concern, you want your total vacation to be a certain amount of days, fewer days at your first resort and park tickets for the whole trip. The way the system works booking vacation packages online with Disney, it will only let you book your theme park days for so long relative to your stay. This may not cover your whole trip but you do have some options. You can first look into booking 2 vacation packages with theme park tickets and Disney Resorts Collection hotel accommodations. When booking vacation packages, you would need a $200.00 deposit on each and the total amount would be due 30 days from your date of arrival. This would make it a little easier but also a little more expensive with theme park tickets. 

    The other option you have is to book 2 separate room-only accommodations and then book theme park tickets separately that will cover the length of your stay. This will save you some money as after you get passed 3-day park tickets, your cost per ticket goes down at a fairly good rate. Doing this you would be required to put a deposit down on each room equivalent to the first night's stay plus tax and the total amount due would be due on the date of check-in. Tickets of course would have to be paid in full up front. 

    I would take some time and price out each situation and see what works best for you. You also have the option to call Disney and see if they have some pixie dust lying around to book the theme park tickets you are looking for in combination with your split stay! 

    A lot is happing right now in Walt Disney World Resort and many things coming up really soon. You can keep up with all the happenings over at Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news across the resort. Make sure you keep up with all the latest developments with things such as the opening of date of TRON Lightcycle Run in Magic Kingdom hopefully soon!

    Best of luck moving forward and planning your vacation for early 2023. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
