    I’m a breast feeding Mom and need to pump and freeze my milk to get back home. My husband and I are coming without our little one. I know Pop century has refrigerators but can I request a freezer?


    Hi there, Kristin! Welcome to planDisney, and congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! I’m sure you are busy with last-minute plans and preparations. Especially as a breastfeeding mother, you will want to be sure that you have all your questions answered in advance so you can have the best vacation possible!

    During your stay at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, you will have a refrigerator in your room, but freezers are not available. I did reach out to Guest Services on your behalf, and they spoke directly with the Pop Century front desk, and they let us know that they would be more than happy to help store your breast milk in a freezer. Simply place your labeled breastmilk storage containers (I recommend bags, which take up less space) within a well-sealed waterproof storage bag or cooler. Bring them to luggage services and let them know you’d like them stored frozen until your departure. In fact, I recommend that you bring quite a few clear zip-style storage bags to put your breastmilk storage containers into each day so that you can easily transport your milk each to luggage services. Upon departure, simply collect your frozen milk for safe transport home!

    As a breastfeeding mother, did you know that you can utilize the Baby Care Centers to pump milk? There is one in each Disney Theme Park. You can also find ice and many other necessities there that you may need along the way. You may also bring small soft-sided coolers into the Theme Parks pre-filled with bagged ice to store your milk as you pump it. For more details on similar topics, check out a recently answered question by myself and by my co-panelist Lindsey.

    Kristin, I hope that this information helps you feel at ease, knowing that you can enjoy an incredible Walt Disney World vacation while providing for your baby! From personal experience, I also recommend that you bring along plenty of photos of your little one, as this has been shown to help things along when you do not have your baby nearby! 

    Please come back and see us if you have any additional questions we can help with. I hope you enjoy a magical visit and safe travels!
