    My husband and I will be taking our son on his first trip to WDW in May 2014, he will be 7 months old, can he ride any rides and is there a place on Disney property where I can purchase similac sensitive formula to make packing lighter?

    Hi Jamie!

    I'm so glad to hear you're starting your little Disney fan out at a young age!  We've visited Walt Disney World with our children from the very beginning (7 weeks old was our youngest), and there's so much to look forward to! 

    Walt Disney designed his parks with the family in mind, so you'll find that 99% of the attractions your son will be able to experience.  Here's a nifty list of the experiences that have height requirements.  All told, there are just a handful of things out of all that can be experienced at Walt Disney World.

    Magic Kingdom:
    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    Splash Mountain
    Space Mountain
    Stitch's Great Escape
    Tomorrowland Indy Speedway (will need to ride with an adult so they can operate gas pedal and help steer)
    The Barnstormer
    Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (once it is opened)

    Mission: Space
    Test Track

    Disney's Hollywood Studios:
    Tower of Terror
    Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
    Star Tours

    Disney's Animal Kingdom:
    Expedition Everest
    Primeval Whirl
    Kali River Rapids

    As for the formula, Walt Disney World carries Carnation brand formulas, so you'll either need to pack some, or order some on amazon or and have it delivered to your resort.  I'd just suggest packing the formula, wipes, and diapers in a bag, and on your return trip home, you can utilize the space occupied by the baby necessities with souvenirs! 

    If you choose to order from amazon or the like, make sure you have the delivery address formatted as follows:
    ATTN: First & Last Name
    c/o Disney Resort name
    address line 1
    city, state zip
    Arriving: D/M/YR
    Resort Confirmation Number

    Have a magical vacation!
