Family Weekend

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Daytona Beach Campus will host its Family Weekend from February 1-3, 2019. Check-In begins at 9 a.m. on Friday, February 1st. REGISTER NOW to join us for a full weekend of events that will allow you to enjoy time with your student and experience life at ERAU. Registration is open until January 25th.

Discounted theme park tickets will be available for purchase beginning January 2019 by visiting the Recreational Sports office located in the ICI Center. Office hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Students can purchase tickets for Family Weekend at that time (CASH only) for the following theme park locations. Transportation to and from the parks is the responsibility of the families as ERAU does not provide this service. Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis and are non-refundable. There will only be a limited number of tickets available at check-in on Friday, February 1st. Therefore, advance purchase is highly suggested.
