**** Be sure to read about ALL the ways
You Can Experience Sesame Street at Beaches Resorts, here! ****
That time Cookie Monster knocked on our door is a memory I will never forget. It’s not the fact that Cookie Monster actually came to our room and knocked on our door at Beaches Resorts (which in itself is pretty incredible), but the reactions and pure joy it gave my children and family. Our whole family was giddy over the fact that Cookie Monster was standing right there in our room!
“Let a Sesame Street® furry friend help make your child’s
bedtime wishes come true, even before their head touches
the pillow! In a calm, quiet environment, one of five Sesame
Street® characters will join in on some relaxing stretches, a
bedtime story, and a sweet lullaby before tucking your child
in for the night. (All characters available. Big Bird is only
available at Beaches Negril and Beaches Turks & Caicos).”

I contemplated for quite some time whether or not to do the Sesame Street Character Tuck-In. I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend the extra money. Everything I read seemed to say nothing but great things though, and really, how often are you given the opportunity to have a Sesame Street friend tuck your child into bed?? Taking the leap and scheduling the tuck in is one of the best decisions I have ever made!
We didn’t tell the kids that Cookie Monster was coming or that a Tuck-In was even an option. We put them in their PJs and hung out in the family room. Sure enough, there was a knock on the door around the scheduled time and as the kids opened it, 2 big googly eyes, on their level, came around the corner. I was almost in tears and already knew this was going to be something for the books.
We invited Cookie Monster in. The next 20-ish minutes went so fast as I tried to hang on each moment. He came back to the bedroom where my son asked, “Hey Cookie Monster! Do you want to go upstairs”. Now, before I go any further, you need to know that “going upstairs” meant getting up a spiral staircase. This staircase can be tricky for human adults. Monsters with cookie bellies, they just were not made for. However, to my surprise, Cookie excitedly agreed. As my son darted up, Cookie followed behind scooting up the steps on his belly. I thought for sure he was going to get stuck but laughed out loud despite my concern. He finally did it. He made it up….. but then had to get back down. You really have to watch the video below to fully appreciate this scene!
Once everyone was down safely, it was time for a bedtime story, sing a longs, exercises, gifts from Cookie and of course the tuck in. Every minute of it was laid back, personal, and simply magical! I have hundreds of photos. It was crazy hard to narrow it down to the few I have chosen to post here, but if you watch the video, you will see the entire experience and maybe get a bit of a feel for the magic that occurred the night Cookie Monster knocked on our door at Beaches.
Having a Sesame Street friend knock at your door will complete an already amazing vacation at Beaches!
