    Can I upgrade or convert park tickets purchased elsewhere into a full vacation package?

    Welcome to planDisney, James.

    It's not long now until you'll be embarking on your next Walt Disney World adventure. Make sure that you check out all the magical experiences that await you for the 50th Anniversary Celebration. In all my years of visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth, I've never seen Cinderalla Castle looking so majestic. With its EARidescent makeover, it's the perfect backdrop for those memorable photos!

    You're also going to want to check out the groovy new attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. I had the joy of experiencing this new ride a couple of weeks ago and I can honestly say my expectations (which were very high) were more than exceeded. It's so much fun! 

    If you'd like to upgrade your previously Theme Park tickets to a vacation package, then I'd encourage you to call Disney and speak with a helpful Cast Member at Disney Resort Hotel Reservations. Since I'm not sure what the terms and conditions of your tickets are, you're better off speaking to someone directly. Hopefully, they'll be able to wave their magic wand and figure out an exciting solution for you. 

    Staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is the best! I love all the amazing benefits of staying on property, such as convenient (and complimentary) transportation and extra time in the Theme Parks. Did you know that every Guest staying at a Disney Resort (whether that's a Value, Moderate, or Deluxe Resort) can take advantage of early Theme Park entry? This 30-minute head start means that you'll be able to ride some of the more popular attractions before crowds get busy. And guess what? You can enjoy this benefit on each day of your stay—in any park!

    Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels or Disney Deluxe Villas can enjoy the extra benefit of extended evening hours in select Theme Parks on select nights. This is by far the best time to be in the parks! It's really peaceful and there are fewer people in the parks. It's a great way to get on a bunch of attractions before bedtime!

    I hope you have a wonderful trip, James. Thanks for stopping by planDisney.
