    Hi Dianey Moms!! My husband and i are welcominf our first kid in august and are thinking about our next trip to Disneyland in Feb 2018. What tips or suggestions do you have for the first time brinfing baby? This will be my 4th trip and my husbands 2nd.

    Hi, Lyndsay!

    CONGRATULATIONS to the soon-to-be Mom and Dad! There is nothing quite so special as a brand new baby in the family. Wishing you all the best with your new little Mouseketeer!

    I did many Disney trips when my kids were little, and the most important thing I learned to do is keep on the baby's schedule. That means nap times, scheduled feedings, and usually early nights. The more you keep on baby's schedule, the easier it will be for all of you.

    When visiting the parks, you will need a stroller. I suggest bringing one from home, but you can also go to stroller rental if you prefer. Once in the parks, locate the Baby Care Centers. I spent a LOT of time here when my kids were babies. The Baby Care Centers are perfect for feedings, diaper changes, and even purchasing any necessities you need such as diapers or wipes.

    Bring a roomy tote or diaper bag from home. Each day, make sure it is stocked with diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, and any other items you normally use such as bottles, sunscreen, or baby toys. You might also want to toss in an extra light weight blanket in case it gets chilly.

    Finally, if you and your Prince Charming are looking for a night out, stop by the front desk of your Disneyland Resort hotel to find out about third party baby sitting services. Perhaps you can go out to dinner, see a movie, or do some shopping in the Downtown Disney District while your little prince or princess stays cozy and asleep with a baby sitter.

    Enjoy this magical visit with your new baby!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
