    Hi Gillian,

    How exciting you are looking into an extended vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. Let me try to help you with your question.

    Many Guests frequently have back-to-back reservations, also called a split-stay. This could be because you want to enjoy a different Resort hotel, or you want to take advantage of a Special Offer (free Dining Plans are my favorite). In fact, my next trip will be split-stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    When you book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, these include Theme Park Tickets from the day you Check-In. If your second reservation follows, you could simply add days right at the beginning. However, if your other reservation is before your package one, then as C-3PO says "we're doomed". But there is hope! You can in fact request your Theme Park Tickets of an upcoming package reservation up to three days in advance. This however must be done in person by visiting Guest Relations at the entrance of any of the Theme Parks, or Disney Springs.

    One last tip: note that because you will not get those Tickets until the last minute, you will not be able to make FastPass+ selections in advance. Happy planning!
