    Hi, Our flight arrives in Orlando around 4 pm on a Friday and we leave around 3 pm Thursday. We are staying at the Beach Club Resort. How many days of park passes and dining plan do we need based on those times? Thank you!

    Hi Kelly, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    Because you’re staying at Disney's Beach Club Resort, you’ll not only be walking distance from all of the fun and dining options at Disney’s BoardWalk, but you’ve also got access one of the coolest Resort pool areas: Stormalong Bay

    Because of all of those options, I actually don’t recommend purchasing Theme Park Tickets for either the first or the second day of your vacation. Instead, plan to dine somewhere along the BoardWalk on your first night (Cape May Cafe is a great pick, as is Trattoria al Forno) and plan to spend your last day before your flight leaves at Stormalong Bay. You could even plan a character breakfast on your last day and, again, both Cape May Cafe and Trattoria al Forno are great choices. 

    Of course, if you find that you’d rather visit a Theme Park on your last day, the cost of adding on an extra day might be worthwhile, especially if already purchased Theme Park Tickets for more than 4 days of fun. You can add on an extra day at Guest Relations at any Theme Park, provided you do so within 14 days of the Ticket’s first use and you have some admissions remaining on it (i.e. before your last day). 

    Have a Magical Day,
