    My husband and I are bringing our son to WDW for the first time next year! YAY! He will be 17 months old. Which parks would we get the most out of for someone his age? What tips do you have for bringing an under two year old?

    Hi Jenika!

    I'm so excited that you're taking your little guy to Disney for the first time!  I took my daughter to Disney for the first time when she was 18 months old, and my son when he was only 3 months old!  I know, call me crazy!

    I do have a few tips to make your life a lot easier.  Try to travel light.  You can have baby items delivered to your Disney Resort room through Garden Grocer.  You can also ship items to yourself directly to your resort or order through Amazon and have it delivered too.  If you decide to do that, please make sure that the package is sent to the resort's correct address and is labeled with the word "GUEST", your name, and the date of your date of arrival.

    Keep in mind that the Baby Care Centers are available at all of the theme parks.  They sell diapers, wipes, juices, baby food, and some over the counter medications.   Staying at a Disney resort was also priceless to me.  If the kids were tired, we'd hop on Disney transportation and spend the afternoon napping or by the pool.  It made everything stress free because everyone was rested.

    There are a ton of attractions that you can enjoy with your baby too.  The Attractions page on Disney's website is very helpful.  The ones that say Guests "of any height" are the ones for you. By the way, if there is a ride you want to do that baby can't get on, there is the Rider Switch option! 

    I hope this helps, Jenika.  Have a magical vacation!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
