    Hi there Michelle,

    I am so excited to help you plan this magical vacation!  I see from your previous questions that you're traveling all the way from South Africa.  That is quite the journey, but trust me, it will be well worth it!  

    I hope I'm deciphering your question properly but I think you're asking for tips on what to see and do when you first arrive!?  If so, this is a very debatable topic and if you asked 20 Moms Panelists, you may get 20 unique answers.

    I have been traveling to Walt Disney World for many years, and it is my family's tradition to visit the Magic Kingdom first on every visit.  I personally think walking down Main Street USA and spying the grandeur of Cinderella Castle is the perfect way to begin your magical adventure, especially since this is your very first time.  This will really give your first day at Disney the "Wow" factor.

    If you arrive later in the afternoon, you may not feel that it's worth entering a park.  In that case, I recommend making a trip to Downtown Disney where you can shop til you drop, dine at one of several amazing restaurants, or enjoy some of the live entertainment you'll find around every bend.

    Have you made your dining reservations yet?  If not, I highly recommend doing so as soon as you can! This will ensure that a table will be ready for you at the location of your choice!  You can do this online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.  If you need some suggestions on dining or anything else, let me know by writing back!  Hope to hear from you soon!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
