    Hi! I am taking my 9 month old baby to Disney for the first time. She is very picky about her eating situation and I was wondering if I could bring a travel high chair that connects/ hang on to tables to the parks with me. Thank you for your help!

    Hei Hei there, Rebecca.

    What can I say except you're welcome here at planDisney! I'm so glad you sailed out to find where the sky meets the sea and found your way to us. It looks like your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just beyond the horizon, so let that final countdown commence!

    I'm honored you chose me to answer your question and am beyond excited to hEAR you're bringing your sweet little Mouseketeer on her first Walt Disney World Resort trip! Your momma heart needs to get ready for ALL THE FEELS, because watching her take in the magic will be one of the highlights of your life. Make sure you get a complimentary "First Visit" button for her to wear. You can find them at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel's Front Desk, Guest Relations in each theme park, and many merchandise locations on property. You'll also want to stop by Box Office Gifts inside Town Square Theater on Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park to purchase your Princess her first pair of Mickey Ears. You can get even get them embroidered with her name on the back, which makes for some adorable first visit photos in front of Cinderella Castle.

    I understand you want to make your family's dining experiences as smooth as possible on your vacation by bringing the high chair that she's used to along with you. I reached out to Guest Services and, unfortunately, Guests are not permitted to bring their own high chairs with them.  I know that's not what you were hoping to hear, so let's put our heads together and see if we can come up with a suitable solution. I know many high chairs in the style you are referencing have removable covers. Could you bring only the cover with you and hang it over the high chair provided to you at the restaurants on property? You could also bring along a portable feeding tray that has a suction base to keep it from sliding or flipping over while she's eating (there's a cute Winnie the Pooh one available on shopDisney to give you an idea of what I'm talking about). The combination of the high chair cover and feeding tray would give your daughter that same tactile and sensory feeling she is used to when eating at home.

    You could also take advantage of the high chairs in the Baby Care Centers in each theme park when it's her meal times. While they aren't the exact high chair she's used to, it's a quieter, less active atmosphere than it is in most restaurants. Perhaps removing some of the noise and hustle-and-bustle would make navigating her eating situation a little easier on both you and her. Even if you don't use the Baby Care Centers for meal times, they are a great place to go for a quiet break from the crowds and heat or just to change her diaper.

    Rebecca, thank you so much for your question. I have to head out to return the Heart of Te Fiti now, but I hope this information helps you better prepare for your Disney Princess' first trip. Please stop back by planDisney again one day soon. There's no telling how far we'll go to find the answer you need.
