    1stt trip w 3y son myself n husband we are staying at Caribean beach 7/25-8/1 wondering if the resort as a market to get milk, advice on bringing own stroller, some advice for staying cool in july heat, and are ride strict with 40in height he is 39 1/2 ty!

    You and your family are going to have such a fabulous vacation at Walt Disney World in a few weeks. What a great time to make some magical memories. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is the perfect place to play in the sun. You can totally get milk at the resort. It can be found at the hub of the Resort, Old Port Royale. There you will discover dining, a lounge, shopping, from quick snacks to a full-service restaurant, and even a food court themed like a quaint Caribbean town. It is a great place to stay. Another reason to enjoy the resort is when the weather gets to be too much or the crowds get heavier. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Hotel has 6 heated pools, including a main  pool complex filled with fun. Your little one also tall can enjoy the adjacent water play area, which includes squirt hoses, a large bucket that pours water from above and 3 additional smaller water slides just for the little ones. As for the stroller, I was a huge fan. They are easy to rent, have plenty of space for holding items and you do not have to lug them home at the end of the trip. Disney makes renting so easy too. While the Disney height limit requirement is designed to keep all of the guests safe and happy, it can be disappointing to the little one who cannot go on a great attraction. Often my daughter would wear shoes that she felt made her taller. I think she just grew. Either way, there will be so many great memories and fun adventures waiting for you all at the Happiest Place on Earth. One last tip: Since it is a first trip make a point of visiting Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom. At City Hall you can all receive your own 1st visit celebration button which is a great way to begin a magical vacation. I hope these tips assist you and I will see you at the parks.
