    We arrive at 5:29 on Sept. 25 and are using Magical Express to get to All Star Movies. Will we have time to use our park ticket for that day? If so where should we go? We have three children, 7, 3, and 1. Thanks for your help!

         Hello Megan!  Thanks for coming to the Moms Panel for some advice.  I am placing you at the All Star Movies Resort around 7:00 p.m.  It will usually take about one hour to an hour and a half to arrive at your resort from the airport.  The Magic Kingdom closes at 7:00 p.m. that day, so it looks like you may miss that park.  Animal Kingdom is out of the question due to the fact that is is scheduled to close at 5:00 p.m. on the 25th.  Now Epcot and Hollywood Studios will remain open till 9:00 p.m.  Hollywood Studios closes at 7:00 p.m., but they will allow Disney resort guests to remain in the park until 9:00 p.m. due to the Extra Magic Hours.  So, depending how fast you can check-in, you can quickly head on over to the Disney buses and enjoy the last hours at Epcot or Hollywood Studios.  I would recommend leaving your luggage with Bell Services and making your way to a park so you do not lose any time in your room.  You can retrieve your items upon your return.  Either one of these two parks will be great for your little ones.
    Now you could just arrive at your resort and relax for the remainder of the evening.  You can enjoy the 2 pools that the All Star Movies Resort offers.  The Sorcerer's Apprentice-themed Fantasia Pool and the Duck Pond Pool would be a great way to relax after a day of travel.
    I hope this helps as you continue to plan for your great WDW vacation.  Please come and visit us again.  Have a great and magical day!
