    On day of arrival what would you suggest we do. Traveling with 4yr/1yr. Should be settled at hotel by 4:30. Any suggestions for our first evening, but getting home early so that we can rest up for our first officialy day at a park.

    Hi Marcy!
    Arrival day is always a tricky one as most guests don't want to use a day at the parks yet, but also don't want to just sit in the hotel either. You don't mention which resort you are staying at but two suggestions I have would be to: 1) maybe plan a character meal at one of the resorts to get the kids into the spirit of the trip and start off their autograph books and photos with a bang, or 2) you could head on over to Downtown Disney for dinner or maybe even to check out DisneyQuest.
    Also, a quick swim before bed typically helps my little ones sleep tight in anticipation of their first full day. These are just a couple of suggestions to get the magic started. If you want to specify your resort, I could probably come up with some other ideas as well. It will be my pleasure.
    I wish you all a Magical trip!! :)
