    Hi! My husband and I are taking our 5 mo. old to WDW in October. I'm concerned about his crying when we take him on rides or to see a show and ruining the experience for other people. Any suggestions?

    No worries Heather! The atmosphere at Walt Disney World is completely baby friendly.

    The shows in the theme parks are relaxed, casual, and welcoming to families. Unlike a symphony concert or Broadway play, a completely quiet audience is not expected or typical.  Wiggly toddlers, antsy preschoolers, and excited groups of teenagers abound, so if you throw a crying baby into the mix no one will even notice. The rides are filled with music and activity, so your little one will probably be too entertained to cry. If he does, however, no one will be too aware amidst all the fun. I have taken many an infant through the theme parks with no problems. Throw a pacifier, a small toy, and a bottle in your bag if these items will help you and your son be happy.

    Check out the Baby Care Centers located in each theme park during your visit. These quiet spots are a great place to take a break from the excitement of the parks and feed and change your baby.

    How wonderful your son is making his first visit to Walt Disney World at only five months old! Snap lots of pictures of your tiny prince with Mickey and Minnie.
