    If you make a room only reservation and later buy park tickets and link them to your room reservation, is that reservation then considered a package? Basically, is the room reservation still under the cancellation policy of the room only situation? thanks

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jan! I love that you’re examining the cancellation policies and making sure you know all about your plans. That’s the mark of a great planner! I tend to book my vacations like this; a la carte.

    Unless you’re purchasing a Magic Your Way vacation, or a special offer bundle, it won’t be considered a package. Booking a room and later buying park tickets keeps it a la carte, unless you upgraded to a package and also purchased a Disney Dining Plan. The room, in your example, would remain under the room-only cancellation policy. I typically book this way because I am ready for friends to join me in my vacation or perhaps cancel for a different resort or a larger room. Keep in mind that tickets have their own expiration dates, so read carefully. The new ticketing system will make purchasing online much easier in the future. I’m looking forward to it!

    If I can help you with booking ticket or tours that are perfect for your group, please let me know. I’m on an adventure to stay at every Disney Resort Hotel before I can take a break! ~ Lindsey P.
