    Hi ! We are first time visitors coming from Texas May 27th on Southwest who doesn't participate with Magical Express. Plane lands at 6:30 p.m. and we'll probably take a taxi to the Polynesian. What do you suggest we do for the evening? Have 2 children.

    Hi Christina,

    How awesome, your family's first Disney World trip. I have to admit I am a little jealous as Polynesian is the only WDW resort we have yet to stay at and I hear such great things about it. I am sure you will love your stay there.

    I am a little confused about your comment on Southwest and Magical Express. We use Southwest for almost every Disney trip we take and we always use Disney's Magical Express to get us back and forth to our resort and Orlando's airport. I am thinking that the information you received is regarding the ability to check in at your resort for your return trip home as only a few airlines particiapte in that program,and Southwest is not one of them. I would suggest contacting Magical Express at 866-599-0951 to speak with them. You will find the shuttle service very reliable and a great way to start your trip, plus its FREE!

    Upon your arrival to the Polynesian you are in a perfect spot for a relaxing evening at the resort and a viewing of Wishes from the beach. With a late arrival, we like to walk around the resort and become acquainted with all it has to offer and unwind with a dip in the pool. If you are looking to jump right into the action, you can always head to the park that is offering evening Extra Magic Hours or grab a Disney bus over to Downtown Disney for a little shopping. Any choice will be a perfect way to start your magical vacation!
