We are a family of five, three kids (7, 31/2 and a 1yr old). This will be our 4th trip to WDW Everytime we go I learn something new. One thing I know is that we always check into the resort in the early evening and we seem to be exhausted . This could be from spending the entire day flying. We have now decided to pay the extra $ and fly nonstop. It's not quite as long of a day but it is still a bit of work with a 31/2 hour flight. Our flight gets in around 5pm. Well I am wondering if we should stay the first night at the Embassy Suites at MCO? I'm thinking it would be nice to get rested have our driver pick us up there and then head over to the Polynesian after breakfast? We would also save $200. On our last trip we checked into the Polynesian in the morning (we transfered from ASMO) and it was so nice and relaxing. Well on the other hand we will be having a driver so there isn't much time wasted at the airport with a rental car. We will be arriving at 5, but it will only be 3:00 our time. The day after we arrive is a resort day, so we will have lots of down time. We don't need to worry about room request because we are staying in the Hawaii bldg with a GV. I just wondered if anyone has stayed at the airport after they arrived and how it worked for them?
