    Hi! Mi wife and I are planning Disneyland for New Years Eve with our 8 months old baby.. Is it really really loud for him? Do you suggest to bring earplugs, or some noise cancelling? What do you suggest?

    Hi Luis, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    What an exciting way to ring in the New YEAR! I think it’s fantastic that the entire family is going to be at Disneyland Resort for the holidays. You are going to love the transition from 2019 to 2020. The Resort will still be decked out in its Christmas finery while they bring out the bells and whistles for New YEAR’s Eve!

    While the parties at the Resort are certainly family-friendly, the crowd and noise might be a bit stimulating for your little one. If you are planning on your son joining you and your wife for the countdown, I would suggest noise-canceling headphones (make sure to test them out before the big day to make sure babe will keep them on!) or making sure he is sound asleep when the major festivities start. Two out of three of my babes sleep through anything, but one wakens at the slightest noise, so you will be the best person to determine if a nap will be feasible. If the crowds and sound are a bit much for him, you can find respite in the Baby Care Centers. They are in both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Besides a place to feed him and change his diaper, the Baby Care Centers are a quiet place to rest and relax. 

    One other option! If you are staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, check with the Front Desk regarding babysitting services. They can recommend third-party vendors that contract with Disney, and all arrangements will be made between you and them, separate from the Resort. But, I think this is an excellent alternative if you are concerned about the noise and crowd level for it-bit on New YEAR’s Eve.

    Luis, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. chEARs to a new decade!
