    Was planning on taking DS4 to AK on our arrival day, 5/18/12. Flight lands at 10:17AM, and I'm worried that by the time we get to the park, we won't have much time there since it closes at 6PM. I see Epcot has evening EMH. Should we go Epcot instead?

    Hi Randi! You hit the nail right on the head! Although you will arrive at Orlando Airport at 10:17 am, you will need to collect your luggage, unless you have used Disney's Magical Express. You will need to get through the Orlando Airport to Disney's Magical Express station to get on the Disney Bus to your Disney Resort hotel. You will not likely be able to enjoy your vacation if you are trying to rush to make it to Animal Kingdom Park prior to closing. You will much better be able to enjoy the start of your Magical Vacation if you can enjoy the excitement of your arrival to the Walt Disney World Resort and plan to go to Epcot. This is one of my favorite perks for staying at a Disney Resort hotel and using Extra Magic Hours (EMH) to enhance your visit to the Park . 
    It is an excellent idea to plan to visit Epcot and take advantage of evening EMH. Have a Magical Vacation!
