    I’ve read that you can wear an infant in a carrier on most rides without a height requirement, but may be asked to forward face them on rides with a lap bar. My baby will only be 2 months old, will I be asked to face him forward?

    Hiya, Jamie, and welcome to planDisney! It's been a few years since I've had a "baby mine," but I remember those days like they were yesterday. Your upcoming visit next month will be full of magical times and pixie dust for you and your family. I've never seen an elephant fly, but I've seen some happy babies at Walt Disney World Resort! So now, let's talk about how that little one can stay snuggled up and cozy during some theme park attractions.

    I spoke with a friendly Cast Member who said your little one would be welcome to accompany you on most attractions with no height restrictions, but she said you would probably be asked to remove the baby and hold the infant on your lap during the ride. Cast Members at each attraction will let you know if your prince or princess should be facing backward or forward, depending on the ride vehicles. I'd bet that your sweet one will sleep through most attractions. You know...like my husband! 

    Jamie, here is an easy way to check which attractions have no height requirements on your My Disney Experience Mobile App. First, tap the location pin icon at the bottom of your screen, and then tap Filters at the top left. Next, tap on the Theme Park you're interested in, and then scroll down to the Ages category, select All Ages, and click Apply. Next, when the map comes up, tap the drop-down arrow at the top to sort by Attractions. I like to tap Show List to see more about each ride in a list format, but you can also view by location on the park map. 

    TIP: You can also find Baby Care Centers on the app by choosing guest Services from the drop-down menu. These centers are located in all four theme parks and offer a calm, quiet space with comfy rockers and all your baby supply needs.

    Attractions like "it's a small world" and Dumbo the Flying Elephant at Magic Kingdom Park seem perfect for a wee one to enjoy with you. And be sure to take lots of photos. Your baby may not remember this first visit, but you will. So please stop by planDisney anytime, Jamie. I'll have Dumbo's magic feather waiting!

    Magic awaits,
