    How do I purchase tickets from Disney and add them to my Disney resort reservation without making it into a "package" reservation? (Would like to keep it as "room only.")

    Hi Christina! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Packages are pretty convenient, and allow for a bit of ease in say making payments on all vacation details all at once. But booking everything separately has benefits too, like there is more freedom in being able to change dates if needed, and you might find a better value on individual vacation details on your own.

    My family has access to discounted Disney Theme Park Tickets through my husband's office, so when we visit I always book a room-only reservation at a Disney Resort Hotel and then add our tickets later. What you'll do is purchase tickets the same way a non-Disney Resort Hotel guests would, and link them to your My Disney Experience Account. Even though your room reservation and tickets will be connected once in your account, they will not turn into a package.

    To purchase Theme Park Tickets through Disney, call (407) 939-7679 or click the Theme Park Ticket option on the 'Tickets, Annual Passes & Vacation Packages' page of the Disney World website. (It's currently the option on the left.) You may also purchase tickets directly through your My Disney Experience Mobile App. Everything should link auto-magically to your My Disney Experience profile, but if not use this link link to connect your tickets. Once purchased and linked, you'll be able to make your FastPass+ selections when your 60 day reservation window opens.

    Bonus Tip: Did you know that you can add a Disney Dining Plan to a room-only Disney Resort Hotel reservation? Call (407) 939-1936 for more info!

    We'll See You Real Soon, Christina!
