    I'm going to Disney with my husband and my two sons (2½ and the other one will be 6 months). I was wondering if I can do most of the rides with my youngest in a baby carrier wrap around my chest? Can I do for example the Peter Pan ride and the Pirat

    Hi, Francois! I have "worn" several of my babies at Walt Disney World...fortunately, not at the same time! (Ha! Ha!)  And yes, there are several attractions you can enjoy without having to take the baby in and out of the carrier as long as you don't mind feeling a little "crunched" at times.  For instance, you can easily walk onto "it's a small world" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" and plop down into a boat with the front baby carrier...no problem.  However, on "Peter Pan's Flight," "Winnie the Pooh" or "Buzz Lightyear," there's a lap bar that comes toward you making it a little uncomfortable with the little one strapped to your chest.  You'll just have to make that determination once you're in line and depending on how sleepy/fussy/hot /uncomfortable he is at the time.

    As far as the other parks, I think it's easier to navigate through Epcot with the baby in the carrier as opposed to a stroller because you do a lot of stroller parking and walking into the various pavilions.  For the other two parks, it varies according to your attraction choices.  There are several shows at Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom which are more conducive for the carrier instead of the stroller.

    I hope this helps you plan! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
