    Hi Moms! We will be at WDW 2/7-14 w/ 7 & 5yo, and 17 mo twins. I anticipate arriving at 4 or 5pm. After we check in, we may not have much time left in the evening. Don't want to waste the evening doing nothing. Suggestions as to what to do that even

    Great question Tracey. We made the mistake once of going straight to a park after flying all day and I had to carry one exhausted girl through the Magic Kingdom. You didn't mention where you're staying, but the first evening is often the ideal time to spend exploring your resort.

    Our new first night "tradition" is hopping on the bus and heading to Downtown Disney. There, we spend the night shopping and then enjoy a nice dinner at one of the restaurants, and end the night with a stop at Goofy's Candy Company. Another idea is to head over to the boardwalk, and soak in all the entertainment and atmosphere.

    I sure you'll have a magical vacation whatever you decide!
