    Staying with friends at SSR for 4 nights through DVC. We will need to book 2 addditional nights for our stay (not through DVC) and would like to have DDP & magic your way tickets for the entire stay. What is the best way to go about this?

    Hi Amy,

    How wonderful that you will be able to stay with your friends at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. I really enjoy that Disney Vacation Club offers members the flexibility to choose a different size of villa each time we visit Walt Disney World. This means that we can bring different people with us each time we visit. It sounds like your friends are taking advantage of this!

    In order to add nights to your stay, since you are not using Disney Vacation Club Vacation Points as your friends are for the beginning of the vacation, you are going to need to make a second reservation. I am not sure if you want to try to stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa in the same villa as for the first part of your vacation, or if you want to move to another smaller villa or to another resort. If you want to stay in the same villa, this cannot be guaranteed, but you can ask that a request be noted on each reservation, and Disney will do their best to honor the request.

    In order to have both the Disney Dining Plan as well as Disney theme park tickets for the second part of your trip, you are going to need to purchase a Magic Your Way package for that part of the trip. This package can include both a Disney Dining Plan as well as theme park tickets. Be sure to track your dining entitlements as the entitlements from the first reservation will expire at 11:59 p.m. on the day that you check out from your first reservation. As to Disney theme park tickets, you will need to decide with your friends how many days you will visit Disney theme parks with them and purchase those tickets separately. Your Disney theme park admission for the second part of your vacation will be included with your Magic Your Way package. I suggest that you call Disney at 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639) to speak with a cast member who can help you to make the reservation.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Amy! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
