    Can I breastfeed in the park? Or is only in the baby center? Sometimes you are really far away from the center

    Hi there, Alejandra!

    I’m so glad to welcome you to planDisney! When I came across your question, I knew I had to share some tips with you, MamaBear to MamaBear. I've been breastfeeding my toddler and newborn Mouseketeer for years now, so I've picked up a few tricks for feeding our little ones at The Happiest Place On Earth.

    I’m glad that you’re already aware of the Baby Care Centers. These are little havens in the parks that provide all The Bare Necessities we need so that us MamaBears can rest at ease! 

    But Alejandra, You’re totally right—sometimes we're far from these centers. But Hakuna Matata! I've nursed all over the parks without any trouble. From the cozy corners of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to the soothing ride of the Disneyland Railroad, there are plenty of spots to relax and feed your little one.

    The newly reimagined Mickey’s Toontown offers plenty of resting spots for parents while the little ones have a blast exploring. Nestled between Mickey’s House and Chip ‘n’ Dale’s GADGET Coaster is a shaded retreat for families to unwind, snack, and recharge. But here's my little secret: There's an infant and toddler play area behind Donald’s Duck Pond that is shaded and closed off. I find it to be the perfect spot to feed my tiny tot after he's worn himself out.

    Another favorite is upstairs at the Golden Horseshoe Restaurant in Frontierland. Picture this: sipping on a Strawberry Ice Cream Float while lounging on a sofa above the hustle and bustle of the dining area—bliss!

    Over to the Disney California Adventure Park, the lobby inside the building where you find Animation Academy and Anna & Elsa’s Royal Welcome is a serene spot to nurse, enjoy scenes from so many beloved films, and escape the heat.

    I also love grabbing a bite at Paradise Garden Bandstand. Live music, shade, and breastfeeding—it's the perfect combo! 

    These are just a few spots, Alejandra—I usually wear nursing tops, so I've found that any spot with a seat works for me. Even waiting in line isn't a problem; I've nursed in a carrier or under a cover with no issues at all!

    I’ve loved sharing my experiences with you, Alejandra! As Queen Ursula says, "That's what I do! It's what I live for!" So, if you have any more questions before your visit, just swim on back to ask me another question.

    You've got a friend in me,
