First Night

I was wondering if I could get some advice. We'll be landing at MCO at around 3pm on our first day and then transferring by Magical Express to the Beach Club.

My wife and I are currently having a robust discussion (her words) or a disagreement (my words) about our first meal. She'd like to book a table service meal at Cape May for the first night whilst I think that it may be better to just grab a quick service meal somewhere as we don't know what time we will get there or how tired we will feel (especially our kids).

I was wondering what everyone else does on their first day for food?

I agree with you, I would get a QS meal. For one you cant guarantee that you will be able to make an ADR in case your flight is delayed etc. Also we are just far too tired to do a sit down meal. We normally go for a swim and get a quick bite before going to bed.

We landed a similar time last year at MCO and transferred to AKL. I ended up cancelling the ADR id booked that night and we grabbed a QS at AKL. My husband was right after all. We could not have eaten a full meal.

We always want to have a plan and do something on the first night but, to be fair, we are always exhausted and decide to grab a quick bite to eat then go to bed so were good to go the next morning. Last time we were there, we went to Downtown Disney, did a bit of window shopping and ate at The Polite Pig. Id love to do a table restaurant meal but feel it would be wasted as it feels like weve been up for days by that point.

Deffo go for a QS meal. By the time you get to the resort, showered etc it's going to be very late (approx 6pm local time will be 11pm UK time) so your kids will most certainly be very tired and not want nor enjoy a full sit down meal.

Thank you all for the replies. I think I will try again and convince for the QS meal. Now just to find one around the Beach Club area (but not in the parks) for us to go to. Any thoughts anyone?

Depends on what you like. We enjoy the pizza window and if we have been delayed we take it back to our room.

Edit: to add that this is on the Boardwalk

Muppetnation, we are in exactly the same position!

We may go the Marketplace for some nosh but didn't want to waste a Table Service when we're all exhausted.

Room service is too many DDP points and doesn't get great write ups.
