    Hello Angela!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  We are always happy to help!

    My answer to your question really depends on some factors.  If you are tired after a long car trip, you may enjoy time at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside.  Relaxing at the pool may be just what you need to to store up some energy for your upcoming park days.  If, however, you are anxious to hit the ground running, then I would recommend some time at Epcot Theme Park.   From Future World to World Showcase, there is much to see.  If you do so, plan on staying for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth fireworks and light show.  Depending on your departure time on your last day, you may also want to visit Magic Kingdom Park on your arrival day.  Especially with New Fantasyland, you will want to spend at least one full day there.  Do you have younger children?  If so, that might be a preferable option.  The good news?  You truly can't go wrong no matter what you decide!

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
