Looking for suggestions/advice on the split stay I am about to book. This is my first split stay, so a lot of questions!
Currently, we have the 11 night package reservation for June 22-July 3, 2022 at CBR. However, after we just bought into DVC, I am planning to shorten the stay at CBR to 5 nights and book the remaining 6 nights at AKL.
Question 1. I would like to still keep the CBR reservation for ADR advantage and cancel within 60 days window. Does MDE still allow to link the overlapping reservations?
Question 2. I am hoping the FPP or its equivalent will return by the time we travel. If it is returned in the old form, would it be safer to have the park tickets purchased separately and not as a package with CBR? I am worried that FPPs will be cancelled if the reservation is shortened to 5 days.
Question 3. With the rumored FPP (Three Wishes?) advantage as well as evening hours for the Deluxe resorts only, would it matter how the tickets are bought (as a package, through Disney, third party, DVC)?
Question 4. I would assume the Deluxe advantages would kick in on the AKL check-in date in my case. Is this correct? If there is a Deluxe resort FPP advantage, would the booking window for these open 60 days before the Deluxe check-in, even if the tickets start date is earlier?
I realize the last two questions is only a speculation at this point, but would like to know what everyone thinks.
