    Hello, Arriving at Beach Club Resort on May the 4th. Are there any events, etc. occurring at Hollywood Studios that day? Not sure where to spend first day at WDW. Any info greatly appreciated. TYVM

    Hello Lynn, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel from a fellow Ontarian and Disney enthusiast!

    Disney's Beach Club Resort is one of my favorite Disney Resort hotels and I love the New England-style theming. Be sure to enjoy the unique "Stormalong Bay" pool. The famous "Kitchen Sink" awaits you at Beaches and Cream Soda Shop. The location of this deluxe Disney Resort hotel makes it an entire vacation destination all on its own, great for your first day.

    May I offer an idea for your first day which would be the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival which is included in the cost of your Theme Park ticket. You'll enjoy easy access by foot or Friendship Boat from Disney's Beach Club Resort which will take you directly into the World Showcase where you'll be right in the middle of all the activities. You'll see the festival "Outdoor Kitchens" with international food and wine samplings, have the opportunity to see topiary displays, get gardening tips and much more at this popular annual event.

    Be sure to complete your Disney Online Resort Check-In to expedite your check-in on arrival day. You'll be able to receive your Welcome Package and MagicBands containing your vacation information. If you've arranged Disney's Magical Express your luggage will arrive a few hours later. If not, just drop off your luggage with Bell Services leaving you free to begin your vacation.

    My Disney Experience is a great for securing Dining reservations, FastPass+ selections and MagicBands.
