    We are planning our trip for Christmas this year. Though we have been to Disney parks many times this will be our first time there with a baby. Any special tips to traveling around the parks and attractions with a baby and two other children under 5?

    Hi, Kari!

    Congratulations on both the birth of your newest little one and your upcoming holiday trip to Walt Disney World! What a magical way to celebrate!

    My very first trip to WDW was with an infant and a 3 1/2 year old, so I completely understand your concern regarding traveling with your little ones in tow. First, be sure to rely on the fantastic Baby Care Centers, located in each of the four Theme Parks. From the abundance of changing tables to microwaves for heating up bottles or baby food, sibling-sized seating with family-friendly shows on TV and nursing-mothers-only rooms, filled with rocking chairs, dimmed lighting and art pieces on the walls, you'll know that Mickey and Minnie have thought of everything your young family needs during a day in a Theme Park. It's truly unlike anything I've experienced elsewhere!

    Be sure to take a look at this great post about Traveling with Little Ones at Disney Theme Parks; there, you'll find so many tips and links for families who are bringing the littlest princes and princesses to WDW.  You'll be so glad you did!

    Be sure to document this momentous, and magical, event with several Disney PhotoPass pictures, too! You might want to preorder a PhotoPass CD or a PhotoPass + so that you can capture all of these momentous events at a discount as well.

    Send more questions as you plan, Kari! I'd love to help!
