    Hi! My husband and I are leaving in ONE week to take our girls (6 & 2) to Disney for the first time. We are staying at the Polynesian resort and arrive around 1:00 PM. Any suggestions of things to do when we arrive? We are saving the parks for a full d

    Hi Angela!

    How exciting!  And you picked a wonderful resort for your first visit!  I love to visit Downtown Disney on my first day at Disney World.  You can take a bus from your resort and head over there for a little shopping, snacking and entertainment.  

    If you are saving Downtown Disney for another day, spend some quality time exploring your resort.  There is so much to see and do at the Polynesian.  Take a swim in the beautiful pool.  Let your kids play in the sand on the beach.  Take the monorail for a spin a few times.  You can even resort hop and explore the Grand Floridian and the Contemporary from the monorail.  You can also rent watercraft equipment at your resort.

    Head over to the Magic Kingdom and then take a ferry boat to Fort Wilderness where you can visit the petting zoo and have your little ones ride a pony.

    Have a magical day and a magical first visit!
