    What do we need to know when taking a cruise with an infant

    Hi Dona!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hear that you'll be setting sail with your baby sea guppie. I took my son on his first cruise when he was 6 months old and had an unforgettable time. His very first photo with Mickey and Minnie was taken while we were walking around on deck! It was a magical moment and something I'll never forget!

    Disney Cruise Line makes Traveling with Little Ones so easy and fun! Once onboard, you can ask your Stateroom Host/Hostess for a complimentary diaper disposal unit and Pack-n-Play to be placed inside your stateroom. There are also a limited number of strollers available at the Guest Services Desk on a first-come, first-served basis. If your little one enjoys time in a stroller, I highly recommend bringing your own from home. You'll be guaranteed to have one and it will come in handy while checking in at the Cruise Terminal and during debarkation. You may bring baby formula onboard, too! If the formula is pre-made, or you're planning to bring baby water along, just be sure to pack all liquids inside your carry-on bag (not checked luggage) before your cruise.

    Is your baby crawling and on the move? If so, your little cruiser should participate in Jack-Jack's Diaper Dash! It's one of my favorite activities to watch during every voyage! Babies will race each other towards the finish line in hilarious and exciting heats! Your baby can start training before your voyage! Haha!

    If you have any other questions before your magical adventure at sea, please sail back and visit us again!
