    First trip to wdw, staying at pop century, 14-july til 22-july, traveling from brazil. will be at the airport 10:00am. What you suggest, do a theme park, a water park or something else. I have dinning reservation for grand floridian 19:45,no park hooper,

    How exciting that you're visiting Walt Disney World for the first time! Pop Century is a great spot to first experience a Disney resort. The theming and grounds are fantastic!

    You certainly would have time to visit a theme park, but I wouldn't push it if you're tired after the flight. If you're all feeling energized, you might want to head to the Magic Kingdom for the day. From there, hop on the monorail to the Grand Floridian for your dinner reservations. The Magic Kingdom is open until 11 pm on July 14, so you would have plenty of time to go back after dinner as well if you're still awake.

    After ending up tired after our day of travelling, we now often opt for spending a quieter first day. There's always lots to do at your resort, from enjoying the pool to exploring the grounds. Since you're dining at the Grand Floridian, you might want to head there early. Take the bus from Pop to the Magic Kingdom, and then ride the monorail. From there, you can hop on and hop off and explore the three monorail resorts: the Contemporary, Polynesian and Grand Floridian. Another of our favourite first day activities is to hop on the bus to Downtown Disney, where you can shop and play.

    Whatever you decide, I know you'll have a fantastic vacation!
