Actually, this is not correct. You can make payments on a room-only reservation that is booked BY PHONE - not online. The original reservation must be made by phone and payments must be made by phone. I know this because we made multiple advance payments on our room-only reservation for this past March. A room-only reservation that is originally booked online cannot have payments applied, only reservations made by phone.

To convert a room-only to a package requires canceling the room-only and rebooking a package, though we've had no trouble doing this a couple of times in the past, but we did it by phone. WDW transferred the deposits/payments from the original room-only reservation to the new package reservation. I haven't tried this for a couple of years though, as we did a room-only this past spring.

Sorry, I didn't realize that. I booked through a TA, and just was told no payments on room only reservations. And yes, my room only reservation was canceled when I converted to a package. I got a new confirmation number. It wasn't really "converted", but canceled and rebooked.
Upcoming Trips: October 2014, Port Orleans Riverside, Mother/Daughter trip (OK, the oldest son MAY come too).
