    I want to celebrate my 40 th birthday in Disney World but I will have a 8 month old, what rides can we go one with him? Do I bring my own stroller into the park or have to rent one?

    Hello, Gary!

    Just a few weeks ago, we celebrated my husband's 40th birthday at Walt Disney World Resort. We had a fantastic time. No matter what age, Disney World is the perfect place to celebrate! 

    First, you are absolutely welcome to bring your own stroller for your little Mouseketeer. My little guy always preferred his stroller rather than one from Stroller Rental. Sometimes a familiar spot helps to soothe and comfort in a new environment that can be a bit overwhelming to little ones. 

    Second, you will be surprised how many attractions do not have a height requirement. Thant means that your little one can join you on rides like Dumbo or The Seas with Nemo & Friends. I love the graphics included in this Disney Parks Blog post that organizes all theme park attractions by height requirement so you can quickly see which attractions that you can experience as a family. If you find that there are a few attractions that Mom or Dad want to ride, then you can use Rider Switch which is perfect for attractions like Space Mountain or Test Track.
    I hope this helps. Don't forget to pick up a birthday button, so Cast Members and other Guests can celebrate with you! Please let me know if you have additional questions!
