    We are headed to Disney in 2 Weeks with our 6 month old. I was wondering if we had to bring our own float ring for the lazy river at both BB and TL for our 6 month old, or if they are provided there? Thanks!

    Hi, Heather! Inner tube rafts at Cross Country Creek (Blizzard Beach) and Castaway Creek (Typhoon Lagoon) are included with the price of admission and are widely available at the entrances/exits to the attractions. There are some inner tubes with holes in the middle, and some are solid for the littlest guests.  You'll just have to look around for those without the holes in order to place your baby in the middle and walk or swim closely beside the raft.

    Otherwise, what we've done in the past is one parent will hop in a raft while the other steadies it and places the baby in his/her lap. This works fine if the park isn't too crowded, and other guests don't mind your taking a little extra time and precaution at the entrance. I've never seen anyone bring their own infant float ring, and I'm not so sure you'd want your baby in such a small float amongst the larger rafts. Plus, there's the trouble of trying to keep up with the float ring throughout the day.

    Hopefully, this will give you an idea of how to best plan for your waterpark day(s). Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
