    Hi we are staying at Port Orleans arriving at 930a airport taking magical express, suggestions what to do before room is available that first day?

    Hello, Kim,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  With the close proximity of Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside to Disney Springs, it would be the spot I'd head to upon my arrival.  There is so much to do there you may not even be in a hurry to get back to your room!  There are 55 different dining venues and 110 shopping experiences. You could opt to find a cozy restaurant to unwind after your flight or dive into the adventure of floating up 400 feet to see some amazing views of Walt Disney World at Characters in Flight.  If you need a little energy burst, there isn't just one but two Starbucks.  If you need to burn off some extra energy, how about bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes?  For something completely different, you check out the amphicars at The Boathouse; these are cars that drive right into the water and become boats! 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if you have any further questions. -Kara
