    We originally planned a 3 day Park Hopper Plus visit. Our arrival time is super early on our first day. Instead of hitting the pool, we thought it might be fun to hit the parks instead. How hard is it to add an extra ticket to an existing vacation package?

    Hi there Lindsay, I'd like to wish you a very warm Canadian welcome to planDisney!

    From one Ontarian to another, there's nothing better than spending our chilly winter weather dreaming ahead of sunny adventures in southern climates! Whenever we stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, we like arriving early to make the most of our day. Sometimes, this even means being fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of the complimentary Resort Transportation to head straight to one of the Theme Parks as we wait for our room to be ready.

    You'll be happy to hear that in our experience, it has been very easy to add an extra ticket to our existing vacation packages. Depending on the time of year and the availability of park reservations, adding an extra ticket has been incredibly quick and simple for us to accomplish even on the day!

    • You can do this ahead of time by selecting My Plans via My Disney Experience. From here, you may be able to make additions or modifications to the tickets that you have already purchased with your vacation package.
    • As a guest of select Resort Hotels, you might even have a greater probability of park reservations available to you. On one of our recent stays, we made a split-second decision between hanging out by the pool or heading to EPCOT. After having a look at Theme Park Reservations online it didn't appear that there would be any availability that morning. However we decided that it didn't hurt to check, and the friendly Cast Members at the Front Desk were able to work their magic and add on tickets for us on the spot! Bear in mind that this is always subject to change and availability, but they let us know that it's worth asking as Resort Hotel guests often find themselves in similar situations.
    I especially love being able to hang out on my favourite rides and attractions while taking advantage of Direct-to-Room Service to receive a notification once our room is ready for us to head to directly. It's nice being able to feel so free on that first day with so many possibilities that are open for you to enjoy, so you might even be like us and do a Swim-and-Shop day which includes a wild day at the Water Parks followed by a relaxing round of retail therapy at Disney Springs.

    Feel free to come on back to planDisney whenever you have another question for me and my awesome team of fellow experts! Whatever you choose to do on your early arrival, who can say no to a bonus day at Walt Disney World Resort?

    All the best on your early morning adventures!
