    With the addition of the Grand Destino hotel, has anyone had a problem with getting a seat at Stop #1 going to the parks first thing in the morning?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kim!

    I am thrilled to hEAR that you will soon be leaving for your magical vacation!  Finalize your packing list and double check your plans on the My Disney Experience Mobile App, you are going to Walt Disney World!

    My family and I just returned from a stay in the Gran Destino Tower at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort this past weekend.  I love the exotic beauty of this resort!  If you are not staying in the tower during your visit, take a few quick moments to step inside and admire the architecture and art in the lobby.

    During our stay, we found we were able to get on the buses at stop one without a problem each morning, but we did not always get a seat.  As Disney's bus transportation is the only complimentary option to this large resort, the buses can get crowded in the mornings and the evenings.

    We used Disney's Minnie Van service a couple of times between this resort and the theme parks during our visit.  It seemed to save us both time and space, specifically at park close.  I would highly recommend paying for this private transportation option if you are concerned about getting a seat.

    If you are planning a meal at Coronado Springs Resort during your stay, be sure to check out Three Bridges Bar and Grill.  This restaurant has great views, set in the middle of resort on the water, and the food is delicious!

    Hop on the bus back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any other questions about your upcoming stay!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
