    We are arriving in Orlando 1 day early. We are staying at a Disney resort all week, but wondering where the best place is to stay the first night. We are flying in to airport so we would like to find something that can work with getting to park Next day.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lori!

    Congratulations on your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World! Initially, I would suggest looking into extending your Disney Resort reservation by a day. You can do this online or I might recommend contacting a Cast Member by phone and they can walk you through a few scenarios based on what you are looking for.

    Otherwise, I know of several Guests who have stayed at the hotel connected to the Orlando International Airport on the day of their arrival. This way you can debark your plane, head to bed and wake up early to jump on board Disney’s Magical Express the next morning. Plan to drop off your bags at your Disney Resort and head to the Disney Theme Park of your choice!

    As a third option, you might look into one of the Disney Springs Resort area hotels. If you go in this direction, I recommend using Disney’s Minnie Van Service.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know. Have a magical day!
