    1st WDW visit! We arrive FLA 12/15 staying w. fam. 12/16 - 12/23. Should we book a WDW resort 12/15? Will staying even 1 night allow us to get "package perks"? Do passes' days have to be consecutive or start on check-in? Which parks? She's almo

    Hi there Rebecca,

    Unfortunately "package perks" such as using Disney transportation, Extra Magic Hours, and more
    are only valid until midnight the night you check-out and in most cases, you need to stay at least two nights to really have the opportunity to take advantage of the best perks.  For example, The Disney Dining Plan can only be added to packages that have at least a 2-day park ticket added on, and the Dining Plan entitlements will expire at midnight on the night of your check-out day.

    That considered, it is not worth it to book a Disney World Resort vacation package for one night juts to receive benefits and perks, as they will not be available to you beyond your check out date.  

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
