    I have a reservation for a deluxe resort for 6 nights for 2 adults and 1 child with 5 days of park tickets. My mom would like to stay with us for one night in our room, but she does not want to go to the parks. Is that possible?

    Hello, Meagan! Welcome to planDisney. Planning a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth with a visit by your mother sounds like a vacation that is practically perfect in every way.

    On a trip to Walt Disney World Resort a few years ago, my parents joined us for dinner at Sanaa in Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. My kids were young but they still talk about the night we went out to the overlook on the savannah to see the animals with their grandparents. These little moments become core memories.

    With your resort stay booked and tickets purchased, you should be all set for your visit to Walt Disney World. If your mother does not put you over the allowed number of Guests for your room type, you should be able to add her to the room. You can call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations to speak with a Cast Member about making her a part of your resort reservation. Once she is on the reservation, she can use a Key to the World Card, MagicBand+ or the My Disney Experience App to access the room. The only instance I can think of that may pose a challenge is if you plan on adding a dining plan to your package. Dining plans include all Guests on your resort reservation. She should be able to stay as a part of your resort reservation without having to purchase theme park tickets, but if you have a dining plan, she would be added to the Guests on your plan. 

    The deluxe resorts have so much available for Guests to enjoy. I hope you plan time in your vacation for delicious dining and the amenities available at your resort for a perfect day with your whole family!

    If you have any other questions, please come back to planDisney. We're here for you!

    Thinking of the Happiest Things!
