    Hi! We are planning a trip for April 2020, our daughter will be 8 months old. Can you provide suggestions on best resorts for babies? We would also like a balcony for us to enjoy after she goes to sleep. Thank you!! 

    Hi there, Rachel! Thank you so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. During my last family Walt Disney World Resort Vacation, my youngest was just 6-months-old, and it may have been our best trip yet! 

    When traveling with such a little one, I always recommend staying on the Resort Monorail loop, which includes Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort, and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. On our most recent trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth, we stayed at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and I absolutely loved that I did not have to fold up my stroller to get to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot. Instead, I simply hopped on the monorail. If you want to stay within walking distance to the Magic Kingdom, Disney's Contemporary Resort is only a 10-minute stroll away! Any of the resorts on the monorail loop will also have a balcony, which my husband and I take full advantage of while the little ones get some much-needed rest.  

    Another great option for your upcoming trip would be a resort with access to the Disney Skyliner. If you are willing to forgo a balcony, I would recommend either Disney's Pop Century Resort or Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. If a balcony is a must, Disney's Riviera Resort is just a quick walk away from the Skyliner Station, and select rooms have views of the fireworks from both Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot!  

    Rachel, I also want to make sure that you know about the Baby Care Centers, which are located in each of the four theme parks. These centers have everything you will need for your little one, including changing tables, private nursing rooms, bottle warmers, high chairs, and a small shop stocked with everything that you may need for your little one. 

    Thank you for bringing your question to us, Rachel, and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical vacation! We hope to see ya real soon!
