    We am traveling to Disney with my 9 month old. I know she can go on a lot of rides with us but are we able to use a baby carrier to bring her on instead of just carrying her or putting her on our lap?

    Hi there, Pamela! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Of all the stages in life I've visited Walt Disney World Resort, being there with my babies was my favorite time to experience the magic. There's nothing like seeing the theme parks through our little ones' eyes. 

    As you've mentioned, there are so many attractions that you can experience with your daughter in tow. The even better news? You'll find that you absolutely can baby-wear on any attraction without a height requirement. So, get ready to make beautiful, snuggly memories on attractions like "it's a small world," Pirates of the Caribbean, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant. The only attraction that I can think of that doesn't have a height requirement that you would not be able to sit with her in your carrier is the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel. You will have to sit on one of the attraction's benches, instead of riding on a horse. 

    And I must warn you: In such a cozy position, don't expect her to stay awake for the rides! Every time I carried my baby while riding Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, I'd look down to find a napping prince. And forget about trying to get a high score on Toy Story Mania or Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.  Instead of playing along, I'd find myself watching my sweet boy enjoy the bright colors and whimsical sounds around us. But honestly, those moments are what I loved the most.     

    AN EXTRA GEM: Because it can get pretty hot in Florida, make sure that your preferred baby carrier will be comfortable to wear in the possible heat and humidity. I recommend bringing a stroller along as well in case your little one needs to rest for a longer period of time. 

    I hope that you have an amazing time with your little one. I know that your heart will sing when you see the look in her eyes when she meets Mickey Mouse and is surrounded by Disney magic. Pamela, if you have any further questions about planning your vacation, please revisit us here at planDisney.  

    Magic always,
