    Our son will be 6 months old the time we visit the park and we plan on bringing a car seat and travel system stroller. now we hen hopping on and off the bus from resort to the park, do we need to fold the stroller every time and take the car seat out?

    Hi there, Cecilia,

    Welcome to planDisney! As a mom of two Mouseketeers, I know how exciting it is to bring your children to Walt Disney World Resort for the first time. My kids have been out of the stroller stage for a few years now, but we've definitely made our fair share of trips with the full gamut of gear in tow.

    If you'll be utilizing the complimentary bus transportation system during your visit, you will need to fold the stroller down while riding. My husband and I usually kept our daughter comfortably seated until the bus pulled up and then I would hang on to her while he did the heavy lifting. I put in a quick call to Guest Services and they confirmed that your little one could remain seated in the detachable car seat carrier of your travel system, as long as the stroller was folded down per guidelines. If you'll be riding the Monorail or Disney Skyliner during your visit, your little Jack-Jack can stay secured in his stroller for the duration of the ride, as long as Cast Members don't request you to fold it down to make more room for other guests. Be sure to review the stroller guidelines ahead of your visit to make sure yours meets the size regulations.

    You might also consider babywearing your little bear cub during the bus ride in a Bjorn or similar infant carrier, and transferring him to the stroller system once you've arrived at your chosen park. My fellow panelist Ashley usually does this to make the process a little smoother. If you'll be bringing a Bjorn along, you may also be able to babywear your little one on rides listed for "any height" which is especially handy during nap times. Be sure to take advantage of Rider Switch for attractions with height requirements. We loved using this service when our kids were younger and used it as often as possible.

    While you're visiting the parks be sure to check out the baby care centers, where you'll find changing tables, a kitchen with sink and microwave, and a private room for nursing. 

    Please come back and see us again with any other planning questions as you prepare for your trip!

    Wishing you magic and memories,
