Another quick question! Just out of curiosity, what do you normally do on you first day after you fly in? We get in at 715 am which is plenty of time to do things! However I'm not sure if its a good idea since we'll have been traveling since 3 o'clock pm the day before AND it's 3 hours ahead there so it'd be 4 am our time..
We usually get in about 3-4 at the resort, so we often checkin, unpack, have an adult beverage and a great meal. - ally  503.9 #10 6:58PM
Next trip and last trip we got there too late to do much but sleep! But if we only have a half day left when we arrive we do a dinner show, DTD, or MVMCP/MNSSHP depending on the time of year. - mrsincredible  733.6 #5 7:15PM
We do DTD if we're tired and wanna just relax. Nothing says relaxation more than shopping and food! haha - ariel116  74.2 #70 7:49PM
Depends on what time we arrive. At your time, we would eat, take a nap, and head to the park that's open the latest. - Disneyaddict  267.7 #1021 7:50PM
Out last trip we got to resort about 1pm, ate lunch there then headed to MK to ride rides then went our ressies at BBB then CRT. Our other trips usually only had time to go relax then have dinner. Sounds like y'all may need a nap ten anythings possible. 😉 - txdisneymomma  76.9 #68 8:11PM
I usually fly in & get checked in to my resort by noon. Then I go to DTD & have lunch or ice cream at Ghiradelli. Then hit the shops. Bright & early the next day is a full day at one of the parks. - Tinkerbell1265  440.4 #13 8:13PM
On my sons 4 th birthday we landed around the same time as you and it was a 7 hour flight. We went to sea world. We had fun until he had a huge melt down because it was too much for him! Another time we got to our hotel around 8 am and went to Mk until we could check into our room so we could sleep. That was a much better day since my son needed a nap. Guess it depends on if you have kids or not. Downtown disney could be fun to start your day off if you don't want to do the parks. - disneyworldsbiggestfan  50.7 #89 8:36PM
Check in. Relax DTD and eat. Maybe parks - 5disneylovers  719.3 #6 8:40PM
If we get there early in the day we drop our bags and head to the parks! Later in the day we get dinner and then head to our hotel to swim or just relax. Nothing fancy :) - brittandkell  338.0 #593 9:05PM
We check in , relax & check out our resort , then go to DTD & explore and grab a bite to eat !!!! - skcanfield  463.8 #12 9:10PM
When we first went, we got in two hours late, and it was pouring. So our plan to visit DTD was scraped. We just hung out in the hotel arcade. Now the next time we did a red eye and got to the hotel around the same time you will be getting in. Since our room wasn't ready, which I knew it wouldn't be. We left our carry on bags with the bell desk, and had lunch at QS. We then headed to the parks. - Lelundrial  410.5 #445 9:11PM
In sept we got up at 3 am to get to airport and we arrived in Disney @ 11 and went to Epcot. We had dinner at garden grill and tried to make it through the night. It was a long hot day and kids were tiered and cranky. Illuminations did not start on time for what ever reason. We headed back to buses @ 930. So I think if we end up getting there early again we would either hang out at pool or go to AK because they are not open as late - mmddgp  355.5 #18 10:07PM
Chances are you room won't be ready. I say go to the parks (I like to start with MK). Then, when your room is ready, take an afternoon break at your resort! You can either spend the evening back in the parks or head to DTD for dinner (Wolfgang Puck Express is my first night ritual) and shopping! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  747.5 #4 10:11PM
We hang in DTD - Tazhalo  72.8 #72 10:30PM
I must go to HS to ride TOT and get carrot cake cookie at the Writers shop. - lghr  28.2 #121 10:45PM
We eat and go shopping in dtd😃 - Schramke  402.3 #15 11:06PM
On our last trip we took the red eye from San Diego and got in at 6 am. We were at our hotel by 7:30 and they had a room ready. We all layed down and slept for about an hour then got up and headed to MK. We took it real slow and had a relaxing day and then went to bed early that night and then got up early the next day to make it to open the next park. - mzdisnee  421.7 #14 11:14PM
We always check in and go to DTD for our favorite quick service EOS! - girlonfire  52.4 #86 12:08AM
