    leaving in 14 days!!! I see I can do online check-in, this my 1st time staying at a Disney Resort(Coronado Springs) Would you recommend online check-in. we will have a 1 yr old son. Any last minute packing tips?

    I know you must be super excited about your upcoming trip, Shshauna!  These last fourteen days will just fly by!  I do recommend doing online check-in as it will expedite your actual resort check-in on the day of your arrival. You are going to love the recreational activities and amenities at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort!  I have enjoyed many stays at this beautiful Southwest-themed Disney Moderate Resort. I have also traveled to Disney with infants and toddlers. Although the gift shops at the Disney Resorts and Parks have almost everything you can imagine, the pricing can often be higher than what you would pay at your local supermarket. I would recommend packing sunscreen for your "little one" and yourselves, a sun hat for your son, sunglasses for yourselves, swim diapers for the pool (if you plan to visit the Resort pool), bottles or sippy cups, snack/food items for your son, comfortable walking shoes for the adults, a blanket for your "little one" if he will be using the Resort pack 'n play, medicines that may be possibly needed, and diapers. You are allowed to bring food items and drinks into the parks either in a small cooler or backpack. We often took goldfish, Cheerios, and other snack items into the parks for our toddlers to snack on throughout the day. I would also recommend bringing your own stroller if you are able, to save money on the stroller rental and for the familiarity your son has with his own stroller. I hope this helps!  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you in the days leading up to your trip. Best wishes for a Magical Walt Disney World Vacation, Shshauna!
    Happy Planning,
