    we have a 9 month old that can not do all the rides, how can we ride the bigger rides without the baby

    Hi there, Connie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to see you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in October!

    When it comes to visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" with little ones, Mickey thinks of everything. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised by just how many attractions your 9-month-old will be able to experience at the theme parks. Your little one should be able to experience any attraction categorized for Guests of "Any Age" or "Any Height."  For rides that have a minimum height requirement, simply let the Cast Member (at the entrance of the attraction) know that you have a little one in your party and would like to take advantage of Rider Switch. With Rider Switch, one parent will wait with your 9-month-old while the rest of your party enjoys the attraction. When the riding parent returns, the adults can switch places and the waiting parent can then ride the attraction by entering through the FastPass+ entrance. 

    Baby Care Centers are conveniently located in all four theme parks and feature a kitchen with microwave and sink, changing room, feeding area with highchairs and an on-site shop with essentials for babies such as formula, baby food, diapers and more. They are super helpful!

    I hope this information helps with your planning, Connie. Please stop by again with any new questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip for your family!
