    I am planning a trip to WDW Jan 3-8 my original reservation was Jan 3-7 but decided to add the extra day but the night of the 7th is $60.00 more Do you know why it would be so much more since it is a weeknight not a weekend night? Thanks!

    Hiya from Georgia, Ann. 

    Ann, what's better than a 4-night Walt Disney World Resort vacation? Why, a 5-night Walt Disney World Resort vacation, of course!

    In my personal experience, I have found better prices when I booked further in advance, so the price for your resort may have increased since you originally made your reservation. Alternatively, there could be a special offer or promo offered that was applicable to your first reservation, but not applicable to your second reservation; or it could be a change in season or an uptick in demand. Alas, only the Mouse in Charge himself knows why rooms are priced differently each night. 

    Ann, one of the things that I love to do when adding extra nights to an existing reservation is to book my last few nights at a totally separate resort. If you are finding that your initial resort is priced differently than when you first booked, and a different resort is more friendly to your wallet, a split stay may be a great option for you. 

    My family loves to explore the second resort, take a dip in a new pool, and enjoy some unique recreation options. Not to mention my husband and I get to try out a whole bunch of new snacks and dining options that are specific to each resort. Ann, while it may sound like a hassle to move to another location, the amazing Bell Services team could not make it any easier. Simply call them to pick up your bags, and they will transfer them to your new hotel quicker than you can say Bippity Boppity Boo!

    Ann, we at planDisney love nothing more than to help you plan your practically perfect vacation, so please come back here if we can help you figure out where to play, stay or dine at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    See you real soon!
