    We are staying at the all star sports resort with a two year old and an infant. Online check in let's us choose center court area, hoops area, or home run area. Anyplace I can find a map to choose where we'd like to be?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kelly!

    Online Check-In is one of my favorite vacation planning tools to use when I'm visiting Walt Disney World Resort. Your holiday time is precious, so it's a good idea to take advantage of any time-saving tools you can so you're able to spend more quality time making memories with your family. You can fill in some information in advance, and then your room number is texted to you as soon as it's ready and you can just head straight to your room and use your MagicBand or the My Disney Experience app to unlock the door. It's just like magic!

    Speaking of the My Disney Experience app, it's also a great way to get a closer look at the Resort Hotel you're staying at, Disney's All-Star Sports Resort. Tap on the header map and use it to find your Resort Hotel, or you can search for it using the search function and tap "Find on Map" to be taken straight there. The map shows the names of the buildings so you can have a look around, check out the different areas, and see which one is right for you and your family. All of the buildings available to you are good choices! Center Court and Hoops Hotel are closer to the back so they tend to be a bit quieter if you're interested in coming back to your room in the middle of the day for a nap, and Homerun Hotel has the Grand Slam Pool right there, so your choice all depends on what is most important for you! 

    I hope your vacation is a home run, Kelly!

Meet the Panelist: Jessica, Texas

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups. In fact, we even opted out of a tropical honeymoon to spend a blissful week at Walt Disney World Resort instead! I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
