    Is it true that babies can not sit in parents lap on any of the rides?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Julianne. This is a great question!

     My infant daughter will be making her first visit this summer, and I am SO excited. I know her face is going to light up with joy and wonder when she experiences the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort! I'm happy to tell you that babies are most welcome to sit on a parent's lap while riding many family-friendly attractions. Rides with gentle, slow tracks like Peter Pan's Flight and The Seas with Nemo & Friends are perfect for little ones on a lap. Gentle boat rides like "it's a small world" and Na'Vi River Journey are ideal too! I think you'll find that there are plenty of attractions and shows in the theme parks that your baby will really enjoy.

     Did you know there's a conveniently located Baby Care Center in each of the four theme parks? The Baby Care Center is the perfect place to take your baby for a little peace and quiet amid an adventure-filled day. You'll find a changing room, private nursing room, feeding area with highchairs, kitchen, and even an on-site shop with baby care essentials for purchase. We once ran out of diapers at Magic Kingdom Park, and boy were we glad we could buy more at the Baby Care Center!

     If you're staying at a Resort hotel with your little one, be sure to request a complimentary crib for your stay.

     Thanks for stopping by and please visit us again soon, Julianne!
