    I need advise on what to do the day we arrive. We are getting to Orlando about 2 pm. - We are staying at All Star Movie - Is there a park that you recommend us going to. Do we go to our room first then park or other way around. What park do we visit.

    Hi, Teresa!

    Arrival day in Walt Disney World is so much fun with so many choices!  I suggest going to your resort first, pick up your Key to the World cards, and drop off any luggage you have with you in your room if it is ready.  This way, too, you can get your parking pass allowing you to park for free at the theme parks.

    If you plan to go to a park, I always like to start with the Magic Kingdom!  There is no better way to kick off a vacation than a stroll down Main St. USA!

    If you find your family is tired from your trip in, you might want to skip the parks and head to Downtown Disney where you can shop, dine, and enjoy a relaxing evening.  This way, you can get to bed early and get a great start the next morning.

    Another fun option is to book a character meal, such as Chef Mickeys at the Contemporary.  This is a fun meal and a great opportunity to get autographs from a bunch of your favorite Disney pals!

    Whatever you decide for your first magical night, have fun!   Enjoy your stay at Disney's All-Star Movie Resort.
