    Hello! I am an exclusive pumping mom! We will be coming and staying in a lion king family suite in Feb 2023. What amenities are there in the resorts and hotels to benefit breastfeeding/pumping moms? Is there a freezer available in the room?

    Hiya, Heather.

    I bet you cannot wait to share the wonder of Walt Disney World Resort with your little Mouseketeer next year. Watching them experience the magic for the first time is sure to be a memory you will cherish for years to come. I’m so excited for you!

    The Family Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort come equipped with a kitchenette, including a small refrigerator and microwave, but you won’t have a freezer in your room. Hakuna matata though! I spoke to the Front Desk at your Resort and was told Bell Services will be able to store your breast milk in a freezer during your stay. Simply place your labeled breast milk storage containers in a cooler or waterproof storage bag and take it to Bell Services. Make sure you put the ticket the Cast Member gives you in a safe place, because you will need it when you return to Bell Services to retrieve your containers of breast milk. Policies are always subject to change though, so it might be a good idea to check on this again closer to your arrival just to make sure the current policy is still valid.

    I hope this news helps you breathe a great, big, beautiful sigh of relief, Heather, but let me offer you a few more tips while you’re here.

    • Check out the Baby Care Centers in each of the theme parks. They have private nursing rooms where you can pump, changing tables, high chairs, microwaves, and so much more that will make your day a little easier to navigate.
    • Rent a stroller during your park days. Not only is it affordable to do so, but renting a stroller means you’ll have one less item to pack.
    • Utilize Rider Switch during your trip. This Guest Service allows one adult to stay behind with the non-rider while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. Then, when everyone is finished with the attraction, the adult who stayed behind can experience the attraction without having to wait in the standby queue. If you decide to go with this option, be sure to speak with the Cast Member at the attraction entrance on how to take advantage of it.
    • Check out the Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones webpage on the Walt Disney World Resort website. It has all the information you will need to make your vacation as seamless as possible, including a list of attractions and entertainment little ones can experience along with the rest of the family (pending they meet the height restrictions).
    Heather, I hope you have a truly memorable trip with your family. If you think of anything else we can help you with in the meantime, please stop by planDisney again.
