    We arrive at MCO airport at 230pm. I am traveling with a 16 month old. What tips do you have for things to do the 1st day we arrive? Especially since we dont have a full day. We are staying at Caribbean beach from Mar 1- Mar 7th

    Hi Jamie!

    This is a great question.  You can go down to Downtown Disney.  It is a lot of fun to stroll around, especially if you enjoy shopping.  There are some great shops and restaurants in the area.  Another option is to explore some of the Disney Deluxe Resorts.  You don't have to be staying at one to visit; you can go shopping there, eat at a restaurant, do a special activity (such as my favorite, taking a tour of the Wilderness Lodge), rent a boat if available, etc.  My favorite resorts to explore are the Magic Kingdom Monorail Resorts, the Wilderness Lodge, and the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  The Animal Kingdom Lodge is particularly fun in the evening as there are a lot of special activities there at that time that are free to all guests, not just guests staying at the lodge.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
