    We will arrive Feb 27 at the airport at 9:30 a.m. and were staying at pop century. Could you suggest a good first day activies to do . We have a 6:20 dinner reservation at Chef Mickey. We have park hopper tickets.

    Rhonda, I would kill for a 9:30 a.m. arrival time in Orlando! I've often wondered what I would do if I had a couple extra hours on the first day. I'm living the dream vicariously through you right now! Here's what I'm thinking:

    9:30 a.m. - sing "When you Wish Upon a Star" as your plane touches down.
    9:35 a.m. - groan about it taking too long for the plane doors to open.
    9:40 a.m. - use the bathroom in the airport (recommended.)
    9:45 a.m. - walk to the welcome center to check in for Magical Express.
    10:15ish - check in and get in line for your Magical Express bus to Pop Century.

    11:30ish - check in at Pop Century. Drop your stuff in your room, grab a quick bite at the Everything Pop Food Court and finish with Tie Dye Cheesecake. If you have little ones who will nap, catch one now. Then, bus over to Epcot and tour Futureworld leisurely, taking in all the splendid goodness of Epcot.

    5:45 p.m. - monorail over to the Contemporary.
    6:25 p.m. - eat at Chef Mickeys.

    8:15 p.m. - monorail over to Magic Kingdom and enjoy Extra Magic Hours until 11:00 p.m.

    Go get 'em!
