    My husband and I are planning a Disneyland trip with a 3-month-old in November. As first-time parents, what are some things that would be good to bring with us to the park and what should we know about experiencing Disneyland with an infant.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Victoria! I am just giddy imagining the incredibly precious memories your family will make when you travel to the Disneyland Resort with your new baby!

    When I think about traveling with an infant to the parks, several things come to mind:

    -If you like using a baby carrier or wrap to "wear" your child, you can absolutely bring one along. You can even keep your baby in the carrier while riding some attractions. Just speak with a Cast Member at the attraction to see if it's allowed.

    -Take advantage of the Baby Care Centers - there is one located in each park. These are excellent places to change your baby, feed or nurse your baby, or even rock him/her to sleep. The centers also sell baby essentials and over-the-counter medication if you need it.

    -You can ride as a family on any attraction that doesn't have a height restriction, and there are many that don't!

    -I always recommend bringing a stroller or renting one at the parks. You can store all your necessities in the stroller, quickly move around the parks, and it can also be a great place for your child to nap.

    -Bring along infant-safe sunscreen, a hat, an extra change of clothes or two, single servings of formula if your child is formula-fed, and a pacifier that can clip to his/her clothes if your child uses one. Finally, it can get very warm in sunny Anaheim, California, (even in November) so I suggest bringing a cooling towel or misting fan to help keep you and your baby comfortable. 

    I would love to continue to help you plan, so please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have!
