    I am travelling with my 5 yo and 8 mo- is there a lot of things/rides we can all do together as family or will my husband and I be splitting all the time to take my 5 year old around? Any tips on nursing the infant in the parks?

    Hi Niki,

    You're a smart Mom to plan ahead for your trip to Disney World.

    There are many attractions that you'll be able to do as a family in all of the parks. Your 8 month old & 5 year old can ride any of the attractions where they meet the height requirements (HRs). You can find a list of the attractions with HRs by visiting the Traveling with Little Ones section on the Disney World Website. There you will find a PDF file on the right side of that page that lists attractions at all of the theme parks that have HRs.

    Bring something to help keep your little one entertained in line - favorite small toys, snacks, bubbles, etc. You can also play games like peek-a-boo. Be sure to give him/her breaks from the stroller. Try (it will be hard) to stick to nap and feeding schedules.

    One of the best places to nurse in the parks is in the Baby Care Centers located in each theme park. These centers offer places to feed and change the littlest Mouseketeers during their visits. Click here for a video on what they have to offer.

    Let us know if you have any other questions during your planning.  We're super happy to assist you. Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
