    My mom will be staying with us for 3 of our 8nights. can we buy her a dining plan for only those days? and can we get her a magical express ticket to bring her back to airport even though we are staying? can we do the same with park tickets?

    Hi Jennifer!

          Ooooh - 8 nights?  How wonderful!  Well, I've good news and not so good news for ya...  Let's start with the great news.  You may absolutely have your mother take advantage of the Magical Express shuttle, regardless of her flight day and time.  Just call 1-407-WDISNEY and give them your mom's flight information and she will be able to take the shuttle when it is convenient for her.  Couln't be easier!

          When you purchase a package, all of the guests in the room must have the same exact components.  In other words, all guests must have the same dining package and park tickets.  The great news is that you can then turn around and upgrade the park tickets for those guests who are not leaving early.  So let's say that you purchase three day tickets for everyone in your party.  As soon as you arrive, you can upgrade your family's tickets to include the options and days that you need.  You will only be charged the price difference between the two.  This way, your mom gets the minimum ticket that she needs and you get the tickets that you need!

          Regarding the dining plan, she will need to be included for the entire stay.  Other than that, your package is super flexible and I hope that you have a fabulous vacation!

    Much pixie dust,
