    Me my husband and 6 year old daughter will be arriving Feb 27th and leaving March 4th . We will be staying at Pop Century our flight leaves at 9:00 P.M. wondering if you have suggestions for our departing day. Thanks love this panel.

    Departure day doesn't have to be a downer. Well, at least until you arrive the airport.

    With a 9:00 p.m. flight, Disney's Magical Express will arrange for your ground transportation to pick you up at Pop Century around 6:00 p.m. This service must be picked up from your hotel, even if you vacated the room earlier in the day.

    If you have an extra day of park admission, I would devote some morning hours to the Magic Kingdom, then head back to your resort for a relaxing swim.

    Other fun ideas:
    -Visit Downtown Disney for shopping and dining. A meal at the Rainforest Cafe would be fun.
    -Venture to a Disney water park for a relaxing day. There's nothing like the water for tiring out kids!
    -Play a round of miniature golf, dine at a resort hotel and then swim at the Pop Century pool.
    -Greet Alice in Wonderland for breakfast at 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian. Ride the monorail round-trip after breakfast. Take a Grand Floridian bus to Downtown Disney, then relax at your resort pool in the afternoon.
    -Visit Disney's Boardwalk, then walk to the Beach Club for a late breakfast with Minnie in her beach attire.
    -Enjoy the petting zoo at Ft. Wilderness. Take the boat to the Wilderness Lodge for a fun meal at Whispering Canyon Cafe.
    -Explore the Animal Kingdom Lodge and view the animals from Arusha Rock, the outdoor viewing area.

    Depending on how much leftover energy your family has, you'll want to mix and match the above suggestions that interest you.

    With a later flight, we like to have some afternoon pool time to unwind before returning to the real world.
