    What rides allow Disney California Adventure a 6 month old baby to ride?

    Greetings, Barush, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It’s great to have you hEAR! I’m so thrilled for your Disneyland Resort adventures to begin soon! I’ve been bringing my three Mouseketeers to the Disneyland Resort since they were just a few months old, so I can’t wait to help you plan your day.

    My children love Disney California Adventure Park… there are so many opportunities for fun and adventure! I’m happy to report that there are many attractions suitable for 6-month-olds, too. To see which attractions your little one can accompany you on, I recommend checking out this filtered list. I filtered it by Disney California Adventure Park, and then “Any Height.” 19 attractions currently show up as a result, including some of my favorites, such as Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, Toy Story Midway Mania!, and Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! If you happen to be traveling with another adult or Guest at least 14 years of age, you can also opt for Rider Switch, which allows you and the other Guest to take turns enjoying an attraction while the other waits with your baby. This way, the second rider is able to bypass the standard wait queue. 

    In addition, you can join in fun experiences such as Turtle Talk with Crush and Animation Academy in the Disney Animation Building. The Disney Animation Building is also a great spot to take a break with your little one in the large, air-conditioned Animation Courtyard. This was always one of my favorite spots to take a seat on a plush couch and nurse my little ones, or help them take a much-needed rest. 

    Speaking of nursing and feeding your baby, there’s another great spot for you to get familiar with – the Baby Care Center. You can find it on Pacific Wharf, just behind Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. There, you can find a quiet spot to nurse or feed your little one, change their diaper, or even purchase any baby necessities you may have forgotten. 

    When it comes to navigating the Disneyland Resort with your little one, you're welcome to bring your own stroller, so long as it's no larger than 31" wide by 52" long. You can  also rent a stroller on a daily basis from Stroller Rentals, located near the entrance of Disneyland Park, which is just a short walk across The Esplanade from Disney California Adventure Park. In addition to my stroller, I always enjoyed wearing my babies in a buckled baby carrier to keep my hands free. Most attractions without a height requirement will allow you to keep baby in the carrier, though several may ask you to move the baby forward-facing or on the seat next to you, such as Golden Zephyr

    I hope this helps you as you begin your pixie-dusted journey to the Happiest Place on Earth! Please stop by with any additional questions you may have… I’m all EARs!
