    Hi JoAnne!
    I am so glad that you are coming to Walt Disney World in May. I love visiting this time of year and would suggest going to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.  I have traveled with infants as young as six months so I understand your concern about going to the theme parks.  You will have a fantastic time.  I would recommend staying at a resort on Disney property.  This will give you the flexibility to come and go using Disney's bus transportation which is handy in case your child needs a nap.  Every theme park has a Baby Care Center.  This is a wonderful place to feed your infant, rock him or her, or just have some quiet time.  Carnation Baby Formulas are available at no additional charge.  I would recommend bringing a umbrella stroller that has a canopy and folds down so napping will be easy. Magic Kingdom has several fun rides for infants to adults.  From Small World to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh to Jungle Cruise to The Tomorrowland Transit Authority, most of the attractions will be fun with an infant. Disney's Animal Kingdom is really fun just to walk around and experience all the wildlife.  The Kilimanjaro Safari was always a sure fire way for my kids to fall asleep!  I would also recommend character greetings. There truly is something magical about seeing your infant interact with one of the characters.  These will be some of your most treasured pictures in the years to come.  I have so much more to say but unfortunately have run out of space here.  Please send me a followup question for more information.  Your vacation will be so fantastic!
