    We are traveling to Disney in 2 wks with a 2 1/2 yr old and a 3 1/2 mth old. Are there any rides that I can go on with the younger one if she is in a carrier? For instance, it's a small world?

    Hi, Melissa! There are many attractions that you can bring a carrier on, whether it's an infant carseat carrier or a front baby wearing carrier like a Bjorn. Personally, I liked rocking the Bjorn because it was easier for attractions to accommodate this kind of carrier strapped to my muscular frame rather than flexing my muscles and hefting the carseat carrier along.

    Below is a list of the more ride-oriented attractions that I've had success wearing the Bjorn on. I've added an asterisk (*) next to those that we've either (1) brought a carseat carrier on or (2) would be good candidates to bring the carrier on (the criteria being no safety bars on the attraction and a stable area to rest the carrier. Cast members at each attraction will be able to help guide you on the best approach for the particular attraction.)

    Magic Kingdom
    Small World*
    Jungle Cruise*
    Magic Carpets
    Swiss Family Treehouse* (this will be a workout though!) 
    Haunted Mansion
    Peter Pan's Flight 
    Snow White
    Carrousel (bench)
    Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    Teacups (depending on your baby's neck control - might not be a good idea)
    Buzz Lightyear
    Carousel of Progress*
    Walt Disney World Railroad*

    Spaceship Earth
    Journey into the Imagination*
    The Seas with Nemo and Friends
    Living with the Land*
    Ellen's Energy Adventure*
    Gran Fiesta Tour*

    Animal Kingdom
    Kilimanjaro Safaris (might be too bumpy)
    Triceratops Spin
    Wildlife Express Train*

    Hollywood Studios
    Toy Story Midway Mania
    Great Movie Ride*

    You can even wear your 3 month old on the Disney Transportation System busses or bring the carrier onboard (stroller must be collapsed though.)
