    Planning a trip with a 3 month old infant in April. I have read the Disney rental strollers are not suitable for infants. Is this correct and any suggestions on best ways to carry/travel with an infant around the parks?

    Hi Chelsie!

    Aw! I have such fond memories of bringing our little ones on their first magical vacations when they were infants. While they don't remember their first trips "home," I do vividly and those memories are truly priceless. 

    Honestly, I thought that it would be much too hot and humid to wear them in the wrap and carrier we were used to, but found it quite comfortable. I also found that I was allowed to continue wearing them on many of the rides. We have several pictures of just the tops of their little heads or even sleeping faces peeking out from the carriers on favorite attractions. As far as stroller rentals, the Disney strollers do not work very well for infants. There is a list of "Disney Featured Providers" who offer much more infant suitable models on the Stroller Rental page of the Walt Disney World website. I've used Kingdom Strollers many times.  You can also find a travel one you like and bring it with you. It's nice to have a model that lays flat and offers plenty of shade protection. Which ever way works best for you at home should also work well in the parks. Comfort for you and baby is definitely key.

    I also recommend learning where the Baby Care Centers are located and using them as much as you may need. They are WONDERFUL! 

    Have a fantastic vacation, Chelsie, and please let us know if we can help you with anything else.

    Magical Wishes,
