    My husband and I are planning to take our daughter to Disneyland for her first time somewhere in May. She will be 5 months. Will I be able to take her on any rides while holding her? Or do I have to find a way for her to sit next to me?

    Greetings, Brianna!

    I am SO excited for you to bring your daughter to the Disneyland Resort in just a few short months! Be sure to ask for a “1st Visit” button to commemorate this special moment. You can find one at City Hall in Disneyland Park, or at the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park. 

    I’m thrilled to let you know that there are plenty of attractions, shows, and parades that you’ll be able to enjoy together as a family! And, your daughter will be able to sit on your lap for many attractions – you won’t need to worry about trying to sit her next to you! To view attractions without height requirements, check out this filtered list. Some of my favorite options for little ones include “it’s a small world”, Disneyland Railroad, Casey Jr. Circus Train, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, Peter Pan’s Flight, and Storybook Land Canal Boats. I've also loved wearing my babies in a baby carrier on Toy Story Midway Mania! -- that way I can enjoy hands-free fun and get my competition on! 

    A great option for adults traveling with a little one is utilizing Rider Switch. You’ll switch spots with your partner, so while one watches your baby, the other gets to ride, and vice versa. 

    Also, check out the Baby Care Centers, available in both parks, for a great spot to nurse, feed, change, or simply take a break with your daughter. They offer an awesome vending-style machine with baby necessities, too.

    Wishing you the most magical, pixie-dusted first visit!

Greetings from sunny California! I live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder (and now a Magic Key Passholder) for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids ages 5-10, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Learn More About Kristin
