    Arrive MCO 7/10@ 2:50 and will be taking ME to the Poly. We have a 6:20 ADR for 'Ohana. Enough time to check-in & get kids (1,2,8,9) ready? Thought a rest, @ our hotel would be easiest the first night. Plan on MK after, EMH till 1am (we'renight owls

    Hi Camil!

    Your plan sounds brilliant!  Assuming no major flight delays, you should have absolutely no problem making it to the Polynesian to check in and rest up for your "big first night".  The folks at Magical Express estimate up to two hours from the time you arrive at the counter to the time you arrive at your resort.  In my experience, this is a VERY generous time frame.  It usually takes us anywhere from an hour to ninety minutes to arrive at the front desk of our resort.  You are also arriving later in the afternoon, so your room should be all set for upon your arrival.

    We had dinner at Ohana when we were at Disney last week, and had a wonderful time!  My kids had a blast "sweeping" coconuts with a broom around the restaurant with the other kids dining!    Once you are finished, your family should be in a festive, Disney mood, ready to hit the park for a late night at the Mouse's House!

    Have a great time!
