    We are planning a trip in a few months with our 1 year old. Are there quieter areas in the parks that my baby can take a quick nap in the stroller? If we need to leave the park for a few hours, can we return to the same park on the same day?

    Hi ya Lauren!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, I’m so happy to hEAR from you! Traveling with Mouseketeers, of all ages, is something I have become very familiar with. My son’s first visit was just before his first birthday! After a few trips with him, we brought our little princess to Walt Disney World Resort even sooner.

    The Baby Care Centers made visiting the parks with little ones so much easier! You will be happy to hEAR that there’s a Baby Care Center in each of the 4 parks. There, you will be able to comfortably feed, change, and nurse your Mouseketeer. (Tip: Bring a stroller that reclines so your Mouseketeer can nap comfortably). I like to browse the stores as my little one naps in the stroller. I also recommend allowing the older members in your party to experience an attraction with a height requirement, at this time. This allows us to enjoy attractions, without a height requirement, together as a family when they are awake! 

    Hakuna Matata, you are able to leave the park for a few hours and return to the same park later that day! We like to plan a midday break when we visit. It’s the perfect time to grab lunch and cool down for a bit. If you are planning on taking breaks outside of the parks, I recommend staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. They are conveniently located close to the theme parks and you are able to use the complimentary transportation!

    Lauren, I hope this helps when it comes to planning for this exciting visit. Please be sure to visit us again if you find that you have any more questions as you continue to plan.

    See ya real soon!
