    I’m taking my son to Disneyland for Christmas. He will be 9 months old. Will he be able to ride on any rides?

    Hi, Laurel! 

    Thanks for stopping by with your question about exploring the Disneyland Resort with a baby. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much you can enjoy with your little one, and visiting during the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort is such a merrily magical experience! At Disneyland Park, highlights include Haunted Mansion Holiday, A Christmas Fantasy Parade, and the “Believe...In Holiday Magic” Fireworks Spectacular. After the fireworks, snow falls in the skies as a special seasonal treat! At Disney California Adventure Park, you’ll want to experience Disney Festival of Holidays and the seasonal holiday decor and attractions in Cars Land.

    If there's no minimum height requirement at an attraction or it is advertised as being for “any height,” then it’s safe for your baby boy to ride! Some favorites the family can experience together in Disneyland Park are “it’s a small world,” Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Peter Pan’s Flight, Pinocchio’s Daring Journey, Alice in Wonderland, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and more. Almost every attraction in Fantasyland is baby-friendly!

    If you’ll have another adult with you, take advantage of the Rider Switch program, which allows Guests with small kids to take turns experiencing attractions. The Baby Care Centers are another great resource with full-size changing tables, high chairs, private nursing spaces and baby food prepping areas for your convenience.

    I hope this helps, Laurel, and that you have a wonderful visit to the Happiest Place on Earth this holiday season with your little Mouseketeer!

    Wishing you magic,
