    I noticed that purchasing WDW tickets and an on-property hotel together is more expensive than purchasing them separately. Is there something extra included in the "package" that you do not get if you purchase separately? What am I missing?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kendal. I'm thrilled to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and I'm happy to help you along the way!
     Hmm... You ask a great question! Purchasing a Magic Your Way Vacation Package is the very best way to experience all the magic at the Walt Disney World Resort. I love purchasing a Room, Ticket & Dine Package because of the convenience it offers my family while we're vacationing! A Magic Your Way Vacation Package does include some "Magical Extras" like mini-golf vouchers, but those extras are complimentary to Guests. I'm not sure why you're seeing a discrepancy in price between purchasing your Theme Park tickets and Resort hotel stay separately, and purchasing a package. I just did a quick cost comparison online between the two options, and only found a difference of about a dollar. It could be that while you were "building" your vacation package, you inadvertently selected additional options like the Disney Dining Plan or Memory Maker. I've certainly done that before!

     Kendal, if planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation has you feeling "Tangled," my best advice is to call a Disney Expert!

     Thanks for stopping by. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
