    First nite controversy! Landing on 2/10 at 145pm w/DH ,DD4&6-either can relax at GF and have Park Faire dinner, then go see Wishes, OR start seeing things at Epcot, dinner at Biergarten at 620pm. Only 1 other day planned in Epcot. Suggestions

    Jeanine let's take care of this first night controversy for you!

    Traveling in today's world is stressful and no matter how organized you are things happen and the trip can take a lot out of you.  I always plan the first night so we stay close to our resort and have the time and opportunity to unpack and settle.  There will be magic everywhere in your resort and having some time to explore all the amenities will be important and fun.  The Grand Floridian is beautiful and the kids will surely at least want to see the pools and the marina and the shops.  I love just sitting in the Grand Lobby listening to the beautiful music every night.

    Your plan is excellent!  Check-in, settle into your room, explore the resort, dinner at Park Faire, and then hop on the monorail for the short ride to the Magic Kingdom to see Wishes and catch the night parade.

    Another day at EPCOT during your stay will allow you to hopefully see everything on your list.  Make use of the Fast Passes and study the attractions before you go and make a general plan according to their interests.  You will have a wonderful vacation!
