    I am a breast feeding mom and my babies are staying home with my parents when I travel. Is there a way to store my pumped breastmilk and freeze it for when I travel home?

    Hiya Justene,

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m sure you are looking forward to your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort trip. As a soon-to-be mom, I can definitely relate to your question about how best to store your breastmilk at the Most Magical Place on Earth. There seem to be a lot of different answers to your question, and admittedly some of them I cannot guarantee will be the best solution for you. My motto is always to give it a shot and have a backup plan in case the option you prefer is not available to you.

    If you are staying onsite at a Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel, I recommend reaching out to a Cast Member in Disney Resort Hotel Reservations. One of my fellow panelists, Cindy, noted that in the past Disney’s Pop Century Resort agreed to store labeled breastmilk (as long as it was in a waterproof, airtight container) in their freezer for a nursing mother until her departure. When I reached out to a Cast Member to verify that this policy was in effect across the different resorts (as this was something utilized early last year), they could not do so. Still, they suggested that either way, you reach out before your stay to see if this is an option.

    Another option available to you is a service called Milk Stork. Milk Stork is not affiliated with Walt Disney World Resort, but many nursing moms enjoy their services. You can store and ship your breastmilk home to your little ones for a fee.

    One last tip, have you heard about the Baby Care Centers? Each of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks has lovely little spaces called Baby Care Centers where you can pump milk (you can also ask to have your pump stored there while you enjoy time throughout the parks). It is also an excellent place for your babies to join in on the adventure in the future so they can relax, be changed, and even potty train. I do want to make sure to mention that you are unable to store your breast milk in the Baby Care Centers. You can bring in a cooler to the Theme Parks as long as they adhere to the Walt Disney World Property Rules. You would then be able to store the cooler in a locker and save yourself from having to tote it around with you all day.

    I hope this was helpful, Justene. I know nursing can come with a lot of logistics, but I’m sending pixie dust that one of these solutions helps cut down on some of the added stress.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
