When the time comes and I finally get to Walt Disney World, I am very excited to get to check in at my resort. When checking in, I typically have to wait in line for at least 5 minutes. My son only appreciates an extremely short wait because he too is also very excited to get on with the fun!
Disney understands that many parents will also find that their child is not great at standing in line waiting to check in to the resorts. As such, televisions playing Disney cartoons and other Disney shows are located within a short span from the check in lines. In addition, some resorts offer tables with coloring supplies, including crayons and coloring pages, which are also very close to the check in desk. I have seen these coloring tables at the All Star Resorts and the Caribbean Beach Resort. If you are interested in such fun for your little one, inquire.
In addition to these great places for your children for the check in process, many of the resorts offer fun located close to the loading zone for the Magical Express buses, which take you to and from the airport. Here is my son playing with the blocks at the Pop Century. These blocks offer him fun and entertainment within watching distance as I get our luggage from the bell service.
Hope this helps you a little in getting to the magic a bit faster throughout your stay at Walt Disney World!
