    I purchased my park tickets already, thinking we would stay off property. We've now decided to stay on property- can I book my resort and link it to my tickets so that it is a package? So I can add a dining plan and get the extras?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Amanda. I'm so glad you stopped by, and I'm super excited to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Let's chat.

     I think you'll be so glad that you made the decision to stay at a Disney Resort hotel. As a Guest of the Disney Resorts Collection, you'll enjoy lots of unique perks like complimentary resort transportation and Early Theme Park Entry. What I love most about a Disney Resort hotel stay is that my family is immersed in the magic of Disney storytelling, even after we've left the theme parks!

     You ask a great question. I'm pleased to tell you that if you purchased your Theme Park Tickets directly through Walt Disney World Resort (and not a third party) you can modify your ticket package to create a vacation package with a Disney Resort hotel stay and dining plan. Rather than booking a hotel stay and then trying to link that reservation to your existing tickets, I encourage you to call the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line. A friendly Cast Member there will be happy to assist you! 

     I'm a big fan of the dining plans because they add convenience and flexibility to our Disney vacations. As a mom of three, I need all the convenience and flexibility I can get! I recommend the Disney Dining Plan. This dining plan is the best of both worlds, with easy-to-grab Quick-Service meals that get my family back to our pixie-dusted adventures, and leisurely Table-Service meals that allow us to take a break and chat about all the magical fun we're having!

     I hope this was helpful, Amanda. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! We'd love to help you plan a visit that is practically perfect in every way.
