    My and my husband are looking to plan a vacation here for next summer. Our daughter will be 1 is there anything she can do in the parks? Or should we wait till she is older?

    Hi there, Audreanne! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Visiting with a 1-year old is such a special experience. You will make some amazing memories and have photographs that you will cherish forever! 

    I took my oldest child for his first birthday and started taking my youngest when she was just a couple of months old, so I am speaking from experience when I say that there is plenty for your little one to enjoy! Any ride without a listed height requirement should be suitable for your little one. If you want to see exactly what attractions that they are able to ride, on the Attractions page, click "Filter By" and select "Height" then "Any Height." At 1, my son's absolute favorite attractions were Peter Pan's Flight and Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. He just loved to hear the birds sing! I would say that while we enjoyed every park, the Magic Kingdom had the most for my little one to do, so we spent two days there. 

    While traveling with the littlest Mouseketeers is so much fun, I always make sure to schedule some breaks into my day, including during regular nap time. For this reason, I usually stay nearby at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel so that I can hop on the bus or monorail and be back in the hotel room for a nap. Each theme park also has a dedicated Baby Care Center, where you will find changing stations, high chairs for feeding, nursing rooms, bottle warmers, and a little shop stocked with baby essentials.  

    Audreanne, if you are interested in riding anything that your little one can't join you on, be sure to take advantage of the Rider Switch Service. This will allow both you and your husband to take turns riding while one of you stays with the baby and avoids having you both having to wait in the standby line. Just ask a Cast Member at the ride entrance to set you up. 

    I hope that this helped put your mind at ease about visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with a little one, Audreanne, and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical vacation! We hope to see you real soon!
