    We aren't arriving in Orlando (airport) until 5:30 pm. We are staying at The Villas at Wilderness Lodge & are using Magical express to get there. I am not sure what to do about dining and activities for that evening. Help! Thanks.

    Hi Colleen!

    Since you're arriving pretty late in the evening, I think there are a few great options for you:
    • Make a reservation for dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe in the Wilderness Lodge. This fun and (just a little) rowdy restaurant is a great place to kick off your vacation. After the fun meal, you can explore the lodge and take a dip in the pool.
    • Take a trip to Downtown Disney. This fun area is a great place to explore. Filled with shops and restaurants (be sure to check out the Ghiradelli Chocolate shop!), you easily spend quite a few hours here. Its usually open to midnight, so you'll have plenty of time to wander though the shops.
    • Depending on when you visit, some parks may be open pretty late. If it just happens to be an Extra Magic Hours night at the Magic Kingdom, you may find that you have quite a few hours to spend there!
    Hope this helps!
