    What can a bring to resort to entertain kids

    Hi Lakeysha,

    When planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort with kids, it's always a good idea to bring along some items to keep them entertained during downtimes or relaxation moments. Here are a few suggestions:

    Coloring books and crayons/markers: Perfect for quiet moments in the hotel room or while waiting in line for attractions.

    Stuffed animal or favorite blanket: Familiar comfort items can help kids feel more at home in their new environment, especially during bedtime.

    Soft pool toys: Great for splashing around in the pool and adding some extra fun to swimming sessions.

    Books to read: Whether it's a favorite storybook or a new adventure, having reading material can be a calming and enjoyable activity for kids.

    While it's fantastic to have these personal items on hand, it's worth noting that Disney Resorts offer a plethora of entertainment options throughout the day. From poolside games and music for impromptu dance parties to evening movies under the stars, there's always something happening to keep families entertained.

    Moreover, many resorts feature hidden gems like table tennis, and some, like Disney's Pop Century Resort, even offer playful surprises like hidden games of Twister. With so much to do right at the resort, families can enjoy a mix of relaxing downtime and exciting activities without ever having to leave the magical world of Disney. 

    Don't forget to take advantage of the in-room entertainment options available at Disney Resorts. Many rooms are equipped with televisions featuring kid-friendly channels like the Disney Channel, providing endless hours of entertainment for young ones.

    For a special bedtime treat, families can tune in to the nightly bedtime stories broadcast right in the comfort of their room. It's a cherished tradition for many kids and a wonderful way to wind down after a day of excitement in the parks. 

    So, while it's great to bring along personal items for entertainment, you can rest assured knowing that Disney Resorts Collection hotels offer plenty of magical experiences to keep kids entertained throughout their stay.
