    Hi! I'm trying to plan for our day of arrival, and we should be at our hotel (POFQ) around 3 pm. After a nap for the baby and boys(10 and 7)swim, do you suggest DD by boat to eat, MK(pm magic hours till 12am),or a combo of these? We are so excited!! Thanks

    Since you are arriving from Texas, I would plan on an earlier evening for your first day. Since you'll be arriving Port Orleans French Quarter around 3 p.m., you should be given access to your room right away. Official check in time is 3 p.m. So that works well for your baby's nap!

    I would plan on taking the Sassagoula River boat to Downtown Disney and having dinner. Maybe let the boys race some Legos at the outdoor play area at the Lego store.

    If the boys have more energy, return to POFQ for a bed time swim. This should help everyone get a good night's rest. You'll want to be up early so that you are at your chosen park before it opens. It's always best to arrive the park early as morning touring is ideal for getting to a lot of attractions.

    I love POFQ and I'm so excited for your family!!
