    Looking for dinner suggestions on arrival day. I have 2 small town Princesses, on their first Disney trip, staying at BC, flight arrives at 2pm. Would like to save MK area, for first morning after a good nights sleep. Thanks!

    I would most definitely wait until the morning to show the girls the Magic Kingdom. If you start at the MK in the morning, the crowds will be much lighter and the kids (and you) will have much more energy to cope with the excitement of a first Disney trip.

    By the time you get to your room and settled in a bit, it will be almost dinner time. If you're not going to the Magic Kingdom, basically have four options:

    1. Hang out near the hotel the first night. The Beach Club pool is amazing. The clambake buffet at the Cape May Cafe at the BC is great for dinner. You could also explore the sights at the Boardwalk in the evening and dine at Spoodles without venturing too far from "home."

    2. Book a character meal in a resort for the first night. Gets everyone in the Disney spirit, without having to pay for a park admission. The one drawback in that non of the non-park character dinners (1900 Park Fare, Chef Mickey's) are particularly near the Beach Club.

    3. Explore Downtown Disney and find a restaurant to eat there.

    4. Visit and have dinner at a nearby theme park. Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios are very close to the Beach Club. However, you will be paying for a park admission for not much touring time.

    My girls LOVE the Beach Club. I hope you all have a great trip there!
