    I have a vac pkg for 6/9-6/16 at FQ. I then purchased air fare for the night before, 6/8, and reserved a separate, room-only reservation at FQ. How will check in/out work on the 9th? I want to take advantage of a full day at AK on the 9th!

    Hi Saundra!

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. You'll love Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. It's my personal favourite, moderate resort! Be sure to try the beignets!

    A friend of mine just found herself in the same situation you speak of this past November.

    The advice I gave to her, which worked just fine in her case was to call Walt Disney World resort reservations at (407) WDW-MAGIC prior to arrival, ensuring that you have both reservation numbers handy. Request that they notate on BOTH of your reservation files that you have another reservation. This way the front desk Cast Members who are preparing room folios prior to your arrival, will see that you a continuing stay.

    Upon check-in at Port Orleans French Quarter, advise the Cast Member assisting you that your reservation continues with a Magic Your Way package reservation the following day, and that you would prefer not to have to change rooms after checking in the first time.

    Because you do have 2 room folios, you will still need to physically visit the front desk on the morning of the 9th to 'check out' of your Room Only Reservation and into your new package. You'll hand in your old room key and receive a new set of Key to The World Cards that will include your park tickets & dining plan, if applicable. If you do this first thing in the morning, you should be able to be on your magical way to Animal Kingdom for a full day without any problem!

    Disney's Resort Cast Members will do their very best to ensure that your resort stay is not interrupted by a need to change rooms, but please be aware that on a rare occasion, something beyond their control could occur.

    Wishing you a Magical time on your vacation Saundra!
