    We are going to disney world for christmas this year. We have gone to wdw and cruises multiple times but never with an infant. Our youngest will be 6 you have any recommendations?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Jessica ~

    Christmas is the most magical time of the yEAR at Disney World and I'm excited to see you're planning ahead.

    Here are some things I've found helpful when traveling to Disney with little ones:
    * Use Disney FastPass+ service (FP+) and make your FP+ selections ahead of time to cut down waiting in line.
    * Don't over plan every minute of your day. It will wear you and your little one out.
    * Take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located in all 4 theme parks.
    * Your baby can ride any of the attractions where he/she meets the height requirements. For those attractions with height requirements, you can use the Rider Switch option.
    * Be sure to give your little one breaks from the stroller.
    * Try (it may be hard) to stick to nap times and bed time.
    * Keep your baby well fed and well hydrated.
    * I answered a question for another Guest with some tips on strollers that you may also found find helpful.
    * It takes a little longer to navigate the parks with a baby and stroller (especially during peak seasons). Plan ahead - don't rush yourself - take a deep breath and relax.
    * If your baby uses a pacifier - don't forget it - clip it on and bring a spare.
    * If you see that your baby has had enough for the day, pack it up and head back to your resort. You may not get to do everything on your trip, but you will enjoy everything you do.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your questions. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
