    I'm a first time mom bringing my 3 1/2 month old to Disney World. How do you keep your stroller from being stolen, best diaper change places/tips, do you bring a baby bjorn to take them on rides, safety on monorail trips, diaper bag essentials for park?

    Hi, Aimee!

    Congratulations on the birth of your baby! 

    You will have no problems with keeping your stroller/diaper bag safe. There are monitored areas for stroller parking all over the Parks, and you'll be pleasantly surprised at how safe the atmosphere actually is. You might want to mark your stroller in some way -- a distinctive diaper bag or a ribbon around the handle might be good ideas. The stroller parking can get pretty busy at times.

    Every Park has a fully-stocked baby changing center, featuring changing tables (also in just about every restroom throughout the Resort), rockers/gliders, private rooms for feedings, bottle warmers, and supplies for purchase (formula, diapers, wipes, etc.). You'll just want to grab a map of each Park when you enter and scope out the location so you know just where to go.

    You will definitely want to bring along a carrier. Strollers are not permitted on rides. If you opt to use the bus system, your stroller will need to be collapsed; this is true for the trams from the parking areas to the Park you are visiting. You are able to roll your stroller right onto the monorail and the variety of boats and launches that make up Disney's water transportation options.

    In your diaper bag, you'll likely want to bring extra diapers and wipes, baby sunscreen and a hat, teething gel and/or teething ring (you never know), a change or two of clothes, and, if applicable, extra powdered formula and a bottle. Don't forget to bring sunscreen for yourself!

    Once you have arrived, you'll find that traveling around the World is not as overwhelming as you may have feared. Sit back and enjoy!

    See you later, celebrator!
