    Arrive Sat May 16th, arrive at airport around 2pm, for 7 days at POFQ. What do you suggest we do first day ? Dh and I, ds5. First visit for the boys. We will have been awake since 5am to get our flights - but HAVE to go somewhere we'll be so excited !

    Hi, Jenny!    While all of you will be tired after your travels, that Disney-excitement will kick in as soon as you get to your resort!   Port Orleans French Quarter is a great resort, you are in for a treat.

    One of the really nice benefits of staying at Port Orleans is its proximity to Downtown Disney.   Which leads to a great activity for your first day:   Take the boat from your resort to spend a few hours in Downtown Disney.  Here, you can grab a nice meal, go shopping, and have a fun evening.   It is a lot of fun, but won't be too tiring for you.

    Your son will probably like "Once Upon a Toy."  It is a really fun toy store that my 6 year old can't get enough of!   There is also the huge World of Disney Store and the Lego Store.   If your son likes dinosaurs, he might enjoy eating at the T-REX Cafe.   This dino-themed restaurant is really neat!

    Click HERE for more information on Downtown Disney including a list of shops and restaurants.  

    After a fun excursion to Downtown Disney, take a swim in your pool, or take a leisurely stroll down to Port Orleans Riverside and check out the resort.   It is a nice walk between the two resorts and you can see what that property looks like.

    I hope your family has a wonderful vacation in WDW!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
