Tips for Traveling with a Baby or Toddler

Disney can be overwhelming for the average adult, but without the proper care, it can be even more so for an infant or toddler.

Try to go during the Off-Season. Especially the first weeks of December when the Christmas activities and lights will help entertain a child.

Schedule visits to the parks first thing in the morning. It is usually not as hot or crowded. 

Take your own stroller. Your child will be used to their stroller and you will also have it for walking through the resorts. It is also nice to have the reclining feature for napping. 

Staying on property is recommended for those afternoon naps and breaks. 

Most pediatricians recommend not using sun screen on infants under 6 months of age. Make sure that you keep the direct sun off of your child. Shielding them with a blanket or the stroller's cover can be helpful and have the infant wear a hat. Battery operated fans that attach to the stroller are also a big help. 

Check for Child Swaps on those rides where infants are too small to participate. 

Look for the Baby Stations. Especially if you have an infant who is nursing. There is one in each Park.

   Magic Kingdom – Located behind the Crystal Palace Restaurant
   Epcot – Located the Odyssey Center
   MGM Studios - Found at Guest Relations in the front of the Park
   Animal Kingdom -Near Creature Comforts in the Safari Village.

The Baby Stations are wonderful places to calm down an upset baby. There are high chairs, changing areas, breast feeding rooms, hot water, and a   room with toys and videos if you have an older child with you. In addition there are infant supplies such as diapers you can purchase. 

Consider renting a car. The Disney transportation options are more than adequate. However, quick exits are often easier for both baby and parents. Often bus rides can be very long. Holding exhausted children, bags, and dealing with strollers, while hot and sweaty is not very fun. 

Character pictures with baby are great treasured keepsakes. Be mindful that the characters are very large and can be intimating to some children. Character Meals are a great way to provide interaction in a calmer setting. 

Bring your own snacks. Little baggies or container of their favorite things can be a lifesaver. Especially when waiting in long lines. Children can get hungry at a moments notice. 

Keep your child hydrated. 

Lastly have fun! Go at your children’s pace and enjoy the World from their perspective.
