    What are the best ways to plan your Disney trip if traveling with an infant? For instance, if you're a mom using a stroller, are you able to store the stroller anywhere to access a ride and then get your stroller back after exiting a ride?

    Hi Victoria!

    I love your question! Visiting Walt Disney World Resort with an infant is truly a magical experience!

    You will find stroller parking areas strategically located throughout Walt Disney World Resort near attractions, restaurants and entertainment venues. I have a couple of recommendations for you pertinent to your stroller. Be sure to have some kind of identifier on your stroller (possibly a bright colored tag). You will find that many strollers look very similar. You will be thankful to have something that helps you quickly and easily identify your stroller. When you are out and about, be sure you have a small blanket or towel with you. Use it to cover the seat of the stroller when you are inside an attraction. The warm Florida sun can make the stroller very hot on your little one's skin.

    As you are planning your packing list, be sure to review the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules because there is important information regarding strollers. "Strollers larger than 31” (79 cm) in width and 52” (132cm) in length are not permitted. Stroller wagons are also not permitted."

    Another great tip I can share is to check out the Planning Guide for Preschool Kids & Little Ones. It's filled with oodles of great information!

    I think my most important recommendation is to visit the Baby Care Centers. Located within all four theme parks, they are the perfect place to change, feed or nurse your infant. They were life savers when my kiddos were little. In the Baby Care Centers, you will find a changing room with tables, private nursing room, feeding area with highchairs, kitchen with microwave and sink, and more. They also have a small on-site shop where you can find several baby essentials such as formula, baby food, diapers, and wipes.

    Some of my must have items on my packing list include: sunscreen, sunglasses and/or a hat if your kiddo will wear them, change of clothes in a plastic storage bag, small snacks if needed, water, and any other needed baby essentials. For added magic, an autograph book and pen will be great for meeting Disney Characters. If you plan to enjoy a meal in a table service restaurant, you might also want to include a small toy or something to entertain your little one while you wait for your meal. 

    I'm so excited for you! Seeing Walt Disney World Resort through the eyes of your child is going to be breathtaking! Enjoy every magical moment!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you need any other information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
