    My husband and I are taking my sister and our son to all the Disney parks for the first time and he will be 4 months old, what are some good activites/rides he can participate in with all of us and does he need to be in a sling/carrier to ride those rides?

    Hi, Ashley!  I took my babies on everything with me - except, of course, the things that had height requirements.  In many cases, I just held them in my lap, and didn't have a sling at all with my oldest. 

    I always found when my girls were small infants, attractions that had the brightest colors or music were their favorites.  And it was much easier taking them on things like the Haunted Mansion when they were this small, because they were too small to be afraid. 

    Just make sure to keep the baby well hydrated, and bring a little bit more than you think you'll need of clothing changes and diapers.  Take advantage of the Baby Care Centers, located at each park.  These are great places to change or feed a baby, and if you're nursing, it's a cool, comfortable place to relax and nurse.

    Have a wonderful trip!
