    I'm staying at Port Orleans which I booked through an agent. I'm staying 17 nights, now thinking I'd like to upgrade for a 3 nights at the end of our trip. Can we do this through Disney when we arrive?

    Hiya Louise - welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so glad you found us and decided to stop by with a question. Our team of panelists loves to help Guests just like you from around the globe plan their very own magical Walt Disney World Resort holidays!

    I have to say that I'm quite jealous of Mickey's friends from the United Kingdom and your extra-long trips! It must be so great to escape and be immersed in the magic for a few weeks. You'll get to experience so much, and with the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration going strong, you'll have a lot of options to fill up that time!

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort is such a fun and unique place to call home. Both the French Quarter and Riverside areas are beautifully themed, and you can easily walk between the two making it feel like you're getting two Resorts in one!

    Louise, if you're thinking about extending your trip, first of all, let me say that I support you doing so 100%! That being said, this is not something that I would encourage you to wait on until you arrive. I can tell you from experience that Guest room inventory is extremely limited, and it is unlikely that you'd be able to secure additional nights at Port Orleans at the last minute. Anything is possible, but I don't think I would risk it.

    One option you might want to discuss with your travel agent is booking a separate reservation for those last three nights, also at Port Orleans, and with the same room type. The agent should be able to link that to your existing reservation, and doing so helps the Resort know that you'd like to avoid moving rooms. Depending on the cancelation policy your agent has, I think this method is best because you'll have the room reserved, but if you need to cancel, you can do so without impacting your primary 17-day reservation.

    I hope all of that makes sense, but if not, just shoot me another question and we'll get to the bottom of it!
