    We arrive for our first trip to WDW on June 23 and our flight is not scheduled to arrive until 1:30. Do you have a recommendation for dinner reservations?

    Without knowing the members of your party, I’ll make some various suggestions:

    Character meals -
    Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort
    1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian

    Fun meals -
    Whispering Canyon Café at the Wilderness Lodge
    Rainforest Café at Downtown Disney
    ‘Ohana - Polynesian

    Upscale dining -
    Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge
    California Grill at the Contemporary Resort

    All of these restaurants would be fun for a first evening. The character meals are a nice way to start a WDW vacation. Since they are both on the monorail line, you could take a round trip ride before or after your meal.

    Any meal at Downtown Disney would also allow you to walk around this fun entertainment district too. Dining at the Polynesian or Grand Floridian resorts would give you the opportunity to watch the evening Wishes fireworks. Enjoy your dinner, do some shopping, then walk outside to watch the fireworks.

    I like our first night to be low key as we are usually tired from traveling and hoping to get an early start the next morning.
