    We are going February 6-11. I was wondering about crowds, the pools..we are either staying at All star movies or Coronado Springs. I have a 2 year old son who is right now 33 inches tall. And im worried about me and blake having fun as well as him.

    Hi Whitney!  Oh please don't stress and worry about having fun for yourself as well as your son. My own children visited Disney before they were a year old and have never stopped their love for it. Now their own children are visiting several times a year. My son lives in Germany and all they wanted for Christmas was a trip to Disney and a Disney cruise!

    February is a great time to visit. Early in the month the crowds are about as good as they can be throughout the year. Your visit does not coincide with a holiday and you are coming before the spring breakers.  The weather can tend to be a bit chilly but usually only during the early morning and late evening hours. I suggest some long pants and also light wraps when you are out late or starting early. It is not a month of average heavy rainfall although we all know that mother nature sometimes doesn't cooperate.

    Both of the resorts you are thinking about have some fun things to offer. My personal choice would probably be Coronado Springs as their pool area is a bit nicer with more things to do. It also has a table service restaurant and a great food court. This resort is large but it is situated on a nice lake where you can rent boats and do some water activities. It is considered a convention hotel but many of those guests are busy in meetings all day leaving the resort amenities to you.

    If you want to save with your budget there is nothing wrong with the All Star resorts. They are bright and cheery. The only down side is that they tend to be home to any young groups that be coming for an event at Disney.

    You will find many great attractions in the parks for you. Use the rider-swap system on rides your son is too young to ride. Make a plan and get some dining but don't stress...the magic will happen the minute you walk into a park!
