    I purchased tickets with plans to stay off-site. Now we have decided to stay on site instead. Can my previously purchased tickets be transferred to a vacation package deal?

    Hello there, Shannon!

    Thanks for bringing your question our way. I'm happy to help as you prepare for your visit later this year.

    I'm thrilled you've decided to stay on-site at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel during your visit, as you'll enjoy many fantastic perks. At this time, on-site guests can enjoy Early Entry into the parks giving them a 30-minute jump start on many attractions. You'll also get to make advance dining reservations for your length of stay (up to 10 days) at the 60-day mark instead of logging in to reserve each day individually. When it's time to visit the parks you'll be able to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes at 7 a.m. without waiting until the official park opening. And of course, you'll be immersed in the magic of a themed resort and have access to complimentary transportation to and from the parks each day. 

    I reached out to a Cast Member to confirm whether you'd be able to upgrade your tickets to a Vacation Package and I have good news! As long as you purchased your theme park tickets directly from Disney you'll be able to modify your purchase into a package. The amount paid toward the tickets will apply to the balance of your package. If you purchased your tickets through a third party or travel agent I don't believe you'll be able to modify them, but you can still book your resort stay and link it to your My Disney Experience Account. You'll enjoy the same benefits as other on-site guests even if you book your tickets and resort accommodations a la carte. Keep in mind that resort reservations are subject to a 1-night deposit at the time of booking with the remaining balance due at check-in.

    I recommend contacting a Cast Member by phone to discuss your options and modify into a package, if applicable. Once you've got those details squared away please don't hesitate to come back to us with more planning questions. We'd be happy to offer dining recommendations, ideas for Enchanting Extras to enhance your stay or even tips for maximizing your time in the parks.

    Magic and memories,
