    Hello, I have been to disney a lot this will be my first time with a 6 month old. I just would like to know what parents do with the diaper bags when going on rides? Do they leave it in the stroller or take it with them?

    Hi Jayme! Welcome back to planDisney!

    You're in for a whole new world when you scoop your little one up and head off to Walt Disney World Resort! While it's definitely going to be different I think you'll find this trip to be extra special.  As a mom of three, I can tell you that while your teeny tot certainly won't remember this trip at their age, you absolutely will, and those are memories you will cherish forever! 

    Since your baby will still be so young during your visit, I assume you're bringing your stroller from home or renting one that can keep them comfortable throughout warm days and long naps.  While I absolutely LOVE the strollers that Walt Disney World rents for preschoolers and older kids (they're so easy to push and fit growing legs!), they do not have the option to recline and are made of hard plastic, which probably wouldn't work for your 6-month-old.  

    With over 100 rides and attractions that have no height requirement, your little one can join you for all the fun throughout all four Theme Parks.  At Magic Kingdom, we love to let baby feel the breeze on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover (also a great, semi-private place to comfortably nurse the little one!) and take a gentle boat ride through "it's a small world". 

    It is personal preference but most of the time I leave my diaper bag right in the bottom of the stroller.  While almost every single ride at Walt Disney World allows you to bring your bag along, sometimes it's just easier to leave the diapers and wipes outside! I would highly suggest packing a small backpack with important personal necessities like your phone, wallet, keys, etc. and taking that aboard with you while leaving the larger baby necessities outside.  Again, this is my personal suggestion and you should do whatever feels most comfortable for you.  

    Since a Cast Member may need to move your stroller to help the flow of foot traffic you may find that adding a special, personal touch to it will help you recognize it quickly.  I've seen personalized name plates, colorful ribbons on the handles, and balloons bobbing just above them.  

    If you find that baby needs a break during the day definitely stop by the incredible Baby Care Centers to cool off and relax.  Not only do they have extra supplies like diapers and wipes available for purchase, but they also have highchairs for feeding, changing stations, and private nursing rooms with rocking chairs. You can find a Baby Care Center in each Theme Park!

    I hope you and your little family have an absolutely magical time at Walt Disney World! Stop by to see us again if you have any other questions, Jayme!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
