Should be fine with both scenarios I think.Here's a question regarding park reservations that I haven't seen answered, especially now with them removing orphaned reservations. Consider the two following scenarios where the original booking was a resort & tickets package booked directly through Disney, what would happen?
1. Switch to room only (Disney resort, perhaps booked via 3rd party) and by valid tix for same dates from a 3rd party?
2. Switch to offsite hotel and purchase valid tickets for same dates?
Is there anything that needs to be done with reservations? In both cases I likely wouldn't cancel the original booking until after linking the tickets. I'm considering my options for my August vacation. Was hoping for better discounts, because I cannot fathom spending almost full price when so much is still not open yet. If I can get a better deal staying off site, I will, especially since early entry still isn't a thing.
I would make sure to get the new tickets linked before cancelling a package.
