    We are planning to stay in the Disney resort hotel from 17-19 March, but also want to visit the park on 16 March, how can I add a three day pass starting from 16 March to hotel reservation? Also can I pick up the magic band from the front desk on 16 March?

    Hiya Xiaofei, welcome to planDisney! Can you believe your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is almost here? You are sure to make awesome memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    If you booked a room-only reservation, you can add park tickets to an existing Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation through two different methods.  The first option would be to purchase Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets on the Walt Disney World website as a standalone purchase or by phone via the New Tickets line. Once you purchase your tickets you can link them to your My Disney Experience account. Linking them is quick and easy on the website. Select the "My Plans" option from the My Disney Experience down-down menu, then select "Park Tickets" and follow the prompts to get started. Your tickets will be ready to use in just a few steps.

    If you would like to turn your current hotel reservation into a vacation package, you can do so by speaking directly with a Cast Member via Disney Resort Hotel Reservations. You can also complete this process online, but it does require a few extra steps. The online steps would include booking a new Walt Disney World vacation package and then canceling the current room-only reservation. 

    Xiaofei, I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any more questions or need further advice, please come back and visit us here at planDisney!
