    My husband and I are bringing our 5 month old to Disney for a day. We are trying to decide what park to visit. Any suggestions on what would be best? I am also pumping and would appreciate any helpful tips for that.

    Hi Gabi,

    I'm so thrilled you're planning a trip with your little Mouseketeer. I'm guessing this is likely his or her very first visit, so I understand why you'd like to make the right choice for the occasion. For me, nothing is more iconically Disney than Magic Kingdom Park. Not only will your little one be captivated by the sights, sounds and scents all around, but they'll also be able to enjoy a large number of attractions with no height restrictions.

    My children were older on their first visits, but I still remember their looks of wonder when they experienced Fantasyland for the first time. We flew off to Neverland on Peter Pan's Flight before soaring with Dumbo the Flying Elephant and singing along on "it's a small world." Years later, these classic attractions are still top priorities for our family even though they've graduated to high-thrill attractions. Cast Members will guide you when boarding attractions, but you'll likely be able to keep your little one seated on your lap or possibly even wear them in a carrier on these all-height experiences. 

    When you need a break from rides, head indoors to watch Mickey's PhilharMagic or hang with some feathered friends at Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. My family loves the visuals and music at both locations. I'd also recommend taking time to Meet Mickey in Town Square Theatre and scheduling a character meal at The Crystal Palace where you can dine alongside Winnie the Pooh and friends. Your little one will love the colorful and friendly faces of these Hundred-Acre Wood pals. Pick up a complimentary"1st Visit" button for your cutie to wear during these interactions and I bet you'll even get a few extra hugs. After your meal capture some pictures as your little one crawls around or stretches out on the hub grass right outside the restaurant. It's a great place to snap photos with Cinderella Castle in the background as they explore.

    When it comes to pumping or breastfeeding Walt Disney World Resort has got you covered. You're free to handle business wherever you feel most comfortable, but you'll find a private space (with rocking chairs and outlets) to nurse your sweet babe at the Baby Care Center located near The Crystal Palace. Changing tables and highchairs are also available there, too. Should you decide to spend your day in another park you'll find a Baby Care Center available in each location.

    The Baby Care Centers do not offer storage for breastmilk so I'd recommend bringing a small cooler along with you for the day. You can stash it with some ice packs (no loose ice allowed) in one of the rental lockers near the front of the park. You'll be able to access it as needed throughout the day if you want to avoid carrying it around.

    I hope these suggestions help, Gabi. If we can offer any additional advice please come right back to planDisney and let us know.

    Magic and memories,
