    What are the best things to do for a 5 month old baby at animal kingdom and hollywood studios. Also anything we ABSOLUTLEY must have for our trip on Dec 30-Jan6?

    Hi, there!

     Ramona, you've been enjoying a magical vacation for a few days now. How fun! One of my favorite things about the Walt Disney World Resort is that the magic is for Guests of ALL ages. Even itty bitty Guests!

     At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, be sure to ride Kilimanjaro Safaris. Your baby will love seeing African animals up close while comfortably seated on your lap. My babies have always enjoyed gentle boat-ride attractions, so try Na'vi River Journey with your little one. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park has great entertainment options, but my favorite is Festival of the Lion King. I bet your baby will get a kick out its bright colors and lively music!

     Disney's Hollywood Studios has fewer options for little ones than the other theme parks, but there's still plenty of fun to be had for everyone in your family. The brand-new Disney Junior Dance Party! is the perfect place to take your baby for some moving and grooving. With dancing, bubbles, and appearances by beloved Characters, your kiddo is sure to be grinning ear to ear. Speaking of Characters, there are lots of meet-and-greets at Disney's Hollywood Studios which make for great photo ops to document your baby's first visit. 

     When traveling to the theme parks with a baby in tow, I usually just pack the usual baby necessities in my diaper bag. If you forgot something though, not to worry! Each theme park has a conveniently located Baby Care Center featuring an on-site shop. We once ran out of diapers during a day at Magic Kingdom Park, and boy were we glad we could buy more at the Baby Care Center!

     I'm wishing you the most magical stay, Ramona!
