    Could I bring a small inflatable cushion into WDW parks? Looking for something my child could use, while waiting on slow long lines, to sit on the ground. Then I can deflate & store in backpack when on rides.

    Hello again, Corrine! I am glad to see that you trust us here at planDisney to answer questions about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit. Whether this is your first trip, tenth trip, or any in between, you can never be too prepared!

    After reviewing the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules Prohibited Items list, I do not see anything precluding you from bringing in an inflatable cushion to use when in long lines, however, Disney does reserve the right to prohibit the use of any other items not currently on the list at their discretion. Balloons are not allowed at Disney's Animal Kingdom or Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge for the safety of the animals, and what you're describing could be considered a balloon, so you may not be able to use the cushion at these locations. I will tell you, having visited Walt Disney World with my children, my oldest children being two and four at the time of their first visit, we never had an issue with standing in queues for their favorite attractions. There is no doubt that you and your child will do plenty of walking throughout your vacation, and those little legs will get tired, so my recommendation would be to utilize a stroller (less than 31” in width and 52” in length) as much as possible. This should help keep your child’s legs from getting tired walking throughout the parks so they are ready to stand in the queue and enjoy the ride! On our visit last month, we were able to park hop to three parks over 12 hours without any of our children (all under the age of nine) needing to ride in a stroller, the excitement (and probably the Mickey Ice Cream bars) gave them all the strength they needed. An added plus, they were wiped out and slept in the next morning! Winning!

    If minimizing time spent in the queues is important to you, I would entertain purchasing Genie+ each day. Doing so will allow you to book Lightning Lanes which let you bypass the standby queue and join a separate queue for select attractions. We have had great success with Lightning Lanes during our visits resulting in waiting a minimal amount of time!

    I hope this helps with your planning Corrine! Please come back to planDisney with any additional questions you may have!
