    My husband,son (4) and I arrive on Feb 12th around noon and taking the express shuttle to the Poly. We depart on the 16th and have four park hopper passes. Do you have any suggestions (dining/activities) for our first day on our first trip? Thanks!!

    Hi Sara - Plan on it taking at least two hours to get from the Orlando International Airport to your resort when you take the Magical Express.  I'd probably recommend that you go to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot, which will be the easiest to get to. 

    Assuming that you'll get to the park around 3pm, Epcot is probably the better park.  Make reservations at the World Showcase (Tutto Italia and the San Angel Inn are my two favorites) and visit some of the kid-friendly attractions such as the Seas with Nemo and Friends, Turtle Talk With Crush, and Journey into Imagination with Figment before heading out to dinner

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
