    I’m staying 1 night at animal kingdom and 3 nights at the boardwalk in with my two teenagers. I will not be going on any rides just walking around the park with them. Do I need to purchase 3 park admission passes or are those included in the stay

    Welcome Home, Tina! Thanks so much for visiting planDisney. You've got a friend (and fellow Disney Vacation Club Member) in me, and I'm here to help with your vacation planning question. 

    Picking a favorite Disney Vacation Club resort is like trying to pick a favorite child--they're all amazing in their own way. It's great that you'll get to experience not one, but TWO DVC resorts--Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village and Disney's BoardWalk Villas. Pro tip: on the day you switch resorts, take your luggage to Bell Services and they will transport it to the second location, so you can go about your Disney day! 

    Theme park tickets are not included when Members reserve a DVC Villa. You can purchase tickets through the Walt Disney World Resort website and link them to your reservation in My Disney Experience.  We usually add the Park Hopper Plus option, which lets us visit more than one park each day, and enjoy miniature golf, adventures at the water parks, and more! The My Disney Experience app lets you see your plans on your mobile device, share them with family, and make reservations on the go.

    Even if thrill rides aren't your thing, there is so much to see and do (and eat! Eat the food, Tina!) at the theme parks that you can have a magical day with minimal rides. Here's a couple of ideas to get you started: 
    Tina, the newest episode of the planDisney Podcast is all about visiting Walt Disney World with older kids! My panelist pals Heather and Jonathan talked about letting their teens visit the parks on their own to make some special sibling memories and expand their independence. We're taking this approach when we visit next month--enjoying family adventures, then letting our teenagers have a day on their own for some sister bonding time!

    I hope this information is just what you need, Tina! Thanks for visiting planDisney and please don't hesitate to reach out again with additional questions. 

    Stay Magical!
