I understand park passes are not something that CPs get till they have completed Traditions.
They don't unfortunately

Park passes for DCP participates

My son's check in date is May 16th. We will be arriving at WDW on May 11th. I am trying to determine how many days I should purchase tickets for him.

Do the IDs that the participates receive allow them to enter the theme parks for free? How soon after check in will participates receive their IDs?

Thanks!

We are taking our daughter down to start the program August 13th. We get there the 10th, and I bought her a 4 day park hopper. I figure she is going to be busy with the program stuff starting Monday, but we'll see. If I need more, I can always add on.

My daughter has been there since January. She checked in on a Wednesday and I believe she had her ID on Friday and used it then! Most of the CP'ers used it the day they got it to get into a park for free! Good luck with everything!

My daughter is scheduled to arrive May 21, we're arriving the Sunday 20th. Would she really need me there beyond Monday? I was looking to take a flight home Tuesday afternoon. Also any recommendations on a nearby hotel that isn't too expensive?

I just did this with my daughter in January. I can tell you the check-in day is a long day. Moving in and setting up and running to the store to get things for the apartment and stock her food up. Plus they are running to meetings. You won't know until the check-in day what their schedule is for the rest of the week. I did go back the next day to do some last minute shopping with her and things. She also doesn't have a car there. So depending on your situation - leaving Tuesday might be fine or not. Good luck!!

Congrats on your daughter's acceptance to the DCP!!

Regarding the room, I'm not sure what price range you are looking for but you can book a room at Disney's All Star Sports resort for $85.60/night.

There is a "Holiday Inn Resort Lake Buena Vista" very near the Vista Way apartments. We signed up for Holiday Inn membership benefits and used the initial discount to stay there for less than $60/night. (I don't know if the deal we got then is still available, of course.) It was very convenient to be that close on the morning of check in. There are quite a few hotels in that area, including a Holiday Inn Express about 3 minutes away.

Thanks for the responses! I booked a room at the all star sports but then spoke to someone there who said it's about 1/2 hour from vista way so I think I'm going to try the holiday inn across the street. Will check out the membership for a cheaper rate! Thanks for your help, I'm finding this site super helpful in planning our trip down!

In 2010 we stayed at the Holiday Inn near Vista and on the Orlando Hotels and Attractions Board there's a thread for Friends & Family discount on that and several other hotels. I just looked and it seems to be still active so you may want to check it out! I'll try to post a link.
