    Have any rules and regulations changed due to COVID -19? For example, where could a breastfeeding mom nurse her child in magic kingdom ?

    Hello Abigail, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for sending your question our way.

    My husband and I have been bringing our two little Mouseketeers on our adventures since they were infants. I fondly remember our first family vacation after becoming parents; our son was just three months old, and Walt Disney World was an ideal destination as it provided plenty of things we could enjoy with our newest addition. While we packed way too many things, (it looked like we were moving across the country rather than jetting off for a quick getaway) since I was a nursing mom we didn't have to worry about bringing anything for our baby to eat! I'm happy to share some tips from my experience. 

    Fortunately, none of the current health and safety protocols restrict a mom's ability to nurse, so as long as she follows face covering and physical distancing guidelines, she can nurse wherever she feels comfortable in the theme parks and resorts. If she is looking for a secluded space away from any hustle and bustle, I suggest she and her baby sneak away for some alone time in one of these quieter spots in the Magic Kingdom Park.

    *Along the right-hand side of Main Street, U.S.A. (if you are facing Cinderella Castle) there are side streets with tables and chairs that are usually unoccupied. Bonus: sitting here to nurse also gives mom a great view of the character cavalcades.
    *Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress is a mellow theater show in Tomorrowland that lasts about twenty minutes, giving a baby ample time to feed and possibly even doze off in a cool, dimmed atmosphere.
    *Tom Sawyer Island (only accessible by raft) offers plenty of shade and lots of benches that often go unnoticed by Guests. If there are older children in the group, this is a great place for them to explore and run around while the baby eats. 

    In addition to the above locations, be sure to stop by the Baby Care Center, located between Casey's Corner and The Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom Park. There is a Baby Care Center in each of the four theme parks, and they are fantastic resources for parents of little ones. You'll find spacious diaper changing stations, rocking chairs for nursing moms, and a seating area for other family members. If you forgot any of the bare necessities, you can purchase them here as well. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Abigail. I love that Walt Disney World is such an accommodating and convenient vacation destination for all Guests. I wish you many years of magical memories with your family, and if there is anything else we can do to help make your upcoming stay more memorable, come see us again. 

    Have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
