    This is the first time traveling with my son to Disney. He will be 18 months and we are taking the magical express to our resort. Do I need to bring a car seat with me for him to ride the magical express? If so, does magical express provide car seats?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, William. We're so happy to hear you're planning another Disney vacation!

     Traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort with a little one in tow always makes for magical memories. My heart nearly bursts every time I look at photos from each of my baby's first visits! I just know your little guy's first trip will be practically perfect in every way. 

     As a mom of three, one of my favorite benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is the complimentary transportation. I know that I can count on Disney's Magical Express and the buses, boats, and monorail to get my family quickly and safely to any destination during our stay. You ask a great question about car seats! You do not need to bring a car seat for your son to ride on Disney's Magical Express. In fact, car seats are not permitted on the motorcoaches because they can't safely be secured in the seats. I've found that my toddler is the happiest just sitting on my lap while on Disney's Magical Express (it gives her a better view of the TV screen). William, you won't need a car seat for any other complimentary mode of Disney transportation either, so that's one less item you have to travel with! 

     If you choose to ride in style in a Minnie Van during your stay, a car seat will be provided for your son. I just love that every Minnie Van is equipped with two versatile Graco 4Ever car seats. How great is that?

     I hope this was helpful, William. Please let me know if you have any other questions about your little guy's first Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
