Coronado Springs making baby bottles

36 days out and its suddenly dawned on us, how are we going to make baby bottles whilst at CSR? It's our first trip with our daughter and were just wondering if we have to go to the lobby to get sterilised hot water/sterilising bottles or if we can do this in room? (We are looking at purchashing a cold water sterilising kit)

Getting our daughter off formula early is not an option and we cant get anti reflux ready made bottles.

We have just come back from Spain with our 3 month old.
We bought some of the sterilising bags from amazon - each one can be used in the microwave 20 times. However, we didnt have a microwave on hols, so we just did a cold fill. Filled the bags up with cold water & dropped a Milton tablet in. This can then be used for 24hours & then you have to change the water & use a new tablet. Easy peasy.
We have a kettle which we bought from target last year for about $12 & will be taking that for the hot water.

Ask for a microwave, they have them available to have in your rooms, they also have them in the food court. You can get microwave sterilisers pretty cheap.

My advice is...

1- Just take some sterilising tablets and use the sink in the bathroom. Bottles take 15 minutes to sterilise, seal them up and theyre good for 24 hours (so is the water.)
2- Take ready to drink bottles. They dont need refrigerating and are just there when you need them. They will take up some weight but you can spread that across your cases, and remember you wont have that weight coming home. You can also order some to Boots airside to collect as well, and save having those awkward questions at security.

Dammit! You would have thought the manufacturers would do these.

I can't give any other advice then, apart from the sterilising stuff (I've done it myself, the tablets take up no space and are really cheap.) I did cold water sterilising at home, as I hated the microwave sterilisers, changed my water every lunch time.

it is what it is... I think we're good with sterilising now, it's just making bottles up in our room if we need to, we're worried that using the coffee machine for hot water, it won't be the right temperature or its not been properly cleaned. I think we will just go to walmart and pick up a kettle and use the baby care centres/travel flasks in the parks.

Thanks for everyone's help, any other suggestions and advice for first-time parents staying at WDW is much appreciated. (at first, we thought, we'll be fine. Now its 35 days to go we are like; OMG what about this, how are we going to do that, what if this happens AAAGGGHHHHH! lol )
