    I’m staying at POR with a 6 month old and so I’ll need to sterilise bottles is there anyway to get a room close to a microwave or get one in the room to sterilise bottles and a kettle to boil water?

    Hi there, Charlotte!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll soon be visiting Walt Disney World Resort with your little Mouseketeer!  While your six-month-old probably won't remember much about this trip, you're certainly going to make some memories as you watch your little one take in all the magical sights and sounds.  I highly recommend purchasing Memory Maker for unlimited downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass pictures.  Your photos will be the perfect souvenir to help you relive those memories for years to come and to share with your baby as they get older.

    While you won't find a microwave in any Disney Resorts Collection standard rooms, there are microwaves available for Guests to use in each resort's quick-service dining location.  Since Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is a large resort hotel property, I can certainly understand why you would want a room with convenient access to a microwave to sterilize your baby's bottles.  The Preferred Room category at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside offers rooms located close to dining and transportation.  If you have not already booked a Preferred Room, you might want to see if you can modify your reservation to this room type.  

    I would also suggest calling the Help Center phone number for Disney Resort Hotel Reservations to speak with a Cast Member about your needs.  While room requests can never be guaranteed, the Cast Members will do their best to assign you a room with easy access to the resort's microwaves.

    It is also worth mentioning that the Baby Care Centers, located in all four Walt Disney World theme parks, are a great place to take care of all your baby's needs.  You will find microwaves to sterilize your bottles in the Baby Care Centers, as well as a relaxing, quiet place to feed and change your little one.  The Baby Care Centers also offer an on-site shop where you can purchase any baby-related items that you might have run out of or forgotten.

    As you get ready for your trip, be sure to check out our planDisney Video Library.  We have a whole series of helpful and informative videos about visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth with little ones.  Charlotte, if you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  My fellow panelists and I are all ears!  See ya real soon!
