    I am planning on taking a week long vacation to Walt Disney World in September 2014 for my sons birthday. I am due to have another baby in August 2014 the child will be around 3 tot 4 weeks old at this time... is it a good or bad idea to bring my infant?

    Hi Erika!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Congrats on the new baby! So glad to hear that you will be bringing your little one to the Walt Disney World Resorts! Prepare to make wonderful memories! My daughter's first trip to Walt Disney World was when she was 17 days old (she is four now). Some thought that I was out of my mind, but I had two older children to think of as well. I can assure you that you will be fine! Disney is so accommodating for guests of all ages, including newborns. The best advice I could give you is to familiarize yourself with the Baby Care Centers and stop by when you visit the parks. What I love about it is that they sell diapers, formula, over the counter medicines (which really helped me during one trip when my baby had a fever) and other baby supplies. Just keep in mind that they may not have all the brands of formula or diapers, so you should still plan on bringing your preferred brands. One more thing, September tends to be a very hot month in Florida. Be sure to pack light clothing for the baby as well as sunscreen and a portable fan that attaches to the stroller. Trust me, these items make a big difference in how your baby will behave. Hope this helps!
    If I can offer any more "Visiting Disney with Toddler" tips, please feel free to send them my way!
    Happy Planning!
