    Hi, We are staying at Port Orleans, arriving in the airport 930am taking magical express. Would like to do lunch at Disney springs but not sure of an approx. time to use for a reservation, taking the boat from PO. 5, 8, 10yr kids, suggestions for restur.?

    Hello Kim!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I must say that you have chosen the best way to start your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I also like to start my first day with lunch at Disney Springs, and the boat ride from your Disney Resort hotel to Disney Springs is already an amazing experience.

    I recommend making reservations for 12:30 p.m. since you are travelling with 3 kids. This will allow you plenty of time to arrive at the airport, take Disney’s Magical Express to your Disney Resort hotel, leave your bags at reception and then take the boat to Disney Springs. I really don’t like to rush through things, especially while on vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. Take your time and enjoy every second of your experience.

    As for restaurant suggestions, my 6-year-old daughter is a big fan of T-REX and Rainforest Cafe at Disney Springs Marketplace. I also suggest the newly renovated Planet Hollywood Observatory. You really can’t go wrong with any of these three options.

    Thanks for bringing your question once again to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you have an amazing visit.

    Best magical wishes,
