    I am going to be traveling with a 7 month old to WDW soon! I am aware about the rides that he is able to ride (he is a dare devil for how young he is) I was wondering if I was required to put him in a carrier or if he is able to sit on my lap for the ride?

    Greetings, Alexandrea!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your little adventurer is going to have such a blast on his first Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Even though he may not remember all the details from your trip, I know you'll create memories together that YOU will never forget!

    I'm glad you did some research to see all of the attractions your little one will be able to go on with you. Since most attractions do not have a height requirement, you will be amazed at just how much you can both experience together. While every attraction is different, I will say from my experience that MOST Cast Members will have you take your baby out of a carrier so that he can sit next to you or on your lap. My advice is to just check directly with the first Cast Member at the front of each attraction queue to verify the loading procedure so you are prepared. I'm sure your son will just love Pirates of the Caribbean, Mad Tea Party, and Astro Orbiter to name just a few, like my son did!

    Since you have a baby, I wanted to make sure you knew about the fantastic Baby Care Centers located inside each theme park. These offer semi-private spaces to feed and change little ones. You can also stop by here to pick up any infant essentials such as diapers, wipes, or a pacifiers for a small fee. These have really been a lifesaver for us on our trips.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions about planning your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
