    I'm booked at a WDW resort as part of DCL package but want to get the magic your way w/park hopper waterpark plus the dining plan, DCL operators tell me they don't have access to this and WDW operators say has to booked with origional booking help please

    Hi, Forrest!

    You certainly have the makings of a fabulous family vacation with a stay at Walt Disney World (WDW) combined with a Disney Cruise!

    Disney Cruise Line (DCL) reservations are separate from those made with Walt Disney World -- although you may add on a WDW stay before or after your cruise.  Currently the only options with those stays booked with DCL are park tickets. The Disney Dining Plan is only offered through the Magic Your Way Packages which are booked through Walt Disney World.

    Therefore, what you're going to need to do is cancel the hotel stay portion of your vacation with DCL by either going online to or by calling 800-951-3532. Then, you can book your WDW vacation to compliment your Disney Cruise by going online to or calling (407) 939-7675.  That should solve your issue.

    Let me know if you have other questions as you book or once you get everything squared away. I'd be happy to help. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.

    Bon voyage,
