    We will be coming for the 1st time in may. We were wondering how to be able to visit a park the first day we get there before we are able to check in to our hotel at portorleans riverside? We also have children 3,5,7, any recommendations on must dos?

    No worries! Walt Disney World makes it easy for guests to arrive and get to one of the park as soon as possible

    If you arrive by Disney's Magical Express bus from the Orlando International Airport between 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m., your luggage will be delivered directly to your hotel room. That's one less worry.

    If you arrive with your luggage and/or carry-on bags with you, Bell Services can store them for you until your room is ready.

    When you arrive Port Orleans Riverside, go to the Front Desk to Check-In. If your room is not ready, you'll be given a number to call later to check on the status. You can get everything settled including your room account and tickets. Then, you can take a bus from Port Orleans Riverside to the Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Magic Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    I recommend seeing Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, Pirates of the Caribbean and Dumbo in the Magic Kingdom. At the Animal Kingdom, you'll want to let the kids explore the Boneyard, as well as enjoy Kilimanjaro Safari and Triceratops Spin. The Festival of the Lion King show is fantastic.

    For other recommendations, please write back to us!
