    Hi - Arrving 2 1/2 hours before the rest of my group at Coronado Springs. Any suggestions on what to do while I'm waiting for their arrival? Thank you

    Hi Lisa,

    I'm thrilled that you came back to see us again with another great question! How fun that you'll soon be experiencing the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with some fellow Mouseketeers! You will have an incredible time together and make memories you'll cherish for years to come.

    You'll be happy to hEAR that you'll be considered a Guest of your Disney Resort hotel for the entire day of your check-in, so if you happen to arrive earlier than everyone else, feel free to settle in and enjoy your home away from home! Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is gorgeous, and there are LOTS of wonderful things to do! I'd definitely encourage you to ask for a Resort Experience Guide when you arrive, as there may be some special classes offered during your wait. Whether you'd like to grab a book and relax at a quiet pool or join in on the fun at the Lost City of Cibola pool, the spectacular pools could be the perfect refreshing way to kick off your vacation. You could also stop by Panchito's Gifts and Sundries to ask for a self-guided Nature Walk trail guide, or perhaps my favorite suggestion would be to enjoy a delicious meal, snack, or drink at one of the many dining locations. The views from the Dahlia Lounge are incredible, and their Savory Churros are so tasty! Enjoying the lakefront ambiance at Three Bridges Bar & Grill would be another great option, too. Whatever you decide to do, you'll love unwinding and discovering the incredible attention to detail at this beautiful Resort hotel!

    Thanks so much for visiting us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation next month!
