Arriving at 10:45 am at MCO, checking into AOA, then heading to MK. family of 4.... 2 boys 12, 14 both are huge Disney fans and like to eat.
We don't go to a park on our arrival day. We are eating at Boma at AKL. From there we'll head to DTD, then catch the boat back to our resort, POFQ. Since you plan to go to MK on your arrival day, why not skip to one of the nearby resorts for dinner? 'Ohana at Poly would be my pick.

I always do Chef Mickey on arrival day. Really sets the mood.
