    I am planning a December 2016 trip for 9. I noticed on the resorts packages come with base tickets, do they offer upgrade if I want park hopper? Also what resorts are actually in parks that is walking distance? Do the resorts offer dining deals? Thanks

    Hi Rebecca,

    We just returned from the Walt Disney World Resort with our best friends and the nine of us had a wonderful trip!

    When you are booking a package, you can upgrade your tickets to include the Park Hopper or other passes. You will see an incremental increase in your package. 

    You can walk to and from the Magic Kingdom if you are staying at the Disney's Contemporary, Disney's Grand Floridian or Disney's Polynesian Resort. You can walk to and from both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios if you stay at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club, Disney's Boardwalk Inn or Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin.

    As for dining deals, discount are given to guests with annual passes or have the Disney's Chase Card. There is also Tables in Wonderland that offer dining discounts as well. Each restaurant will let you know if they take a discount. You may want to look at the Disney Dining Plan to see if you can realize some savings here. 

    Wishing you a magical day!
