    We are arriving on a Sunday afternoon. It's just me (dad) and two kids (6 and 8). We're staying for three more days after and have a 4 day pass. Where should we go for this first Sunday afternoon?

    Welcome to the Mom's Panel, John!  How exciting that you will be visiting Walt DIsney World with your two children!  They are the perfect age to enjoy all the magic of Disney! If you are planning to go ahead and visit a park on your arrival day, I would recommend checking out the Park Hours for your arrival date to determine which park to visit based on closing times. Follow the link I have provided to see the Disney Park Hours for your vacation dates. If you will be a guest staying on Disney property, you may want to see which park will offer Evening Extra Magic Hours, which would allow you "extra time" in that particular theme park. If you would rather save your tickets for the remaining days of your vacation, I would recommend visiting Downtown Disney on your arrival day.  Downtown Disney is an entertainment district with exciting restaurants, shopping and entertainment galore and has no admission fee for entry. My children are around the same ages as yours and they love dining at T-REX Café and Rainforest Café, which both feature life-size animatronic animals and themed settings  If you would like to write me back and give me your vacation dates and whether you are wanting to visit a park on your date of arrival, I can make a more specific recommendation for you. Best wishes for a Magical Trip, John!
    Happy Planning,
