    I’m looking for suggestions for something to do with our family the day we arrive. We don’t plan on going to a park, but want to do something fun to kick off our vacation – what would you suggest?

    Hi Karen! 

    My favorite thing to do on arrival day is to visit Downtown Disney! We love to shop in all of the stores, visit the Lego Store and let the kids play with the legos, watch Stitch "spit" water from atop of World of Disney, score free chocolate squares from Ghiradelli and catch a movie at the AMC Dine-In Theatre. This last visit we went to Disney Quest for an afternoon and it was amazing! My son was in heaven as he couldn't believe the number of video games and entertainment. He loves to draw, so he enjoyed an animation lesson from a real Disney artist. He also loved playing the new game from Wreck-It Ralph. My daughter recorded her own music and made her own virtual toy.

    We could have spent the entire day at Disney Quest. While you are at Downtown Disney, don't miss some of the wonderful dining establishments, such as Paradiso 37. Their cheesy corn is out of this world yummy! House of Blues has great food and entertainment!

    I hope you have a magical visit.
