    Hi! I’m a breastfeeding mom planning on staying in a DVC resort in Boardwalk, I need to know if the mini fridge goes down to 32-39 degrees so I can store my breast milk and pump. I don’t need to freeze the milk just store it before I make bottles that day

    Hi there, Stefani! Thanks so much for visiting planDisney. I'm happy to help out a fellow mama to make sure your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is as magical as can be. 

    I have been in your shoes as a breastfeeding mom navigating Walt Disney World (our youngest's first visit was at just 6 months!), and although it requires a bit of advance planning, it's easy to keep up with nursing and pumping with minimal disruptions to your vacation fun. 

    Disney's BoardWalk Villas is a perfect spot for your fall getaway. You can stroll the BoardWalk in either direction to walk to EPCOT or Disney's Hollywood Studios, or enjoy a relaxed day at Luna Park Pool--including a kiddie pool perfect for the youngest Mouseketeers! 

    The Disney Vacation Club Deluxe Studios all have a mini-fridge that should have a temperature below 40 degrees. We recently stayed in a studio and the fridge kept our milk and (more importantly) leftover mac and cheese from The BOATHOUSE cold with no issues.

    Stefani, it's good to know that the fridges do not have a freezer compartment. I know you mentioned you don't plan to freeze milk, but if you need to keep bottles cool during your park days, you can bring a soft-sided cooler into the parks with sealed freezer bags with ice (no loose ice). You can get refills of ice from any Quick-Service Dining location, as well as a cup of ice water so you can stay hydrated, too!

    The Walt Disney World theme parks feature wonderful Baby Care Centers that are an amazing resource for families on the go. Each of the 4 parks has one of these facilities, and you can enjoy a quiet, private space complete with rocking chairs to nurse and perhaps catch a quick nap. There's also high chairs to feed a hungry kiddo, a kitchen, changing tables, and a seating area with a television. And if you discover you're running low on some essential baby supplies, you can stock up on diapers, juice, formula and even clothing (sometimes you just need an emergency onesie, you know?). 

    I hope you are getting excited for your upcoming trip--it will be here before you know it! Thanks again for stopping by planDisney, Stefani--if you have any questions at all to help add a little extra pixie dust to your travels, please reach out anytime!

    Stay Magical!
