    Trying to plan w/15 month old. We have Magical Express reservations, is carseat required for this service? And later at the hotel, what type of sleeping accommodation will be provided? Some hotels offer portable cribs. Do I need to bring the pack n play?

    Hello Heidi! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with a little Mouseketeer does take some extra attention! We are happy to help!

    Disney's Magical Express is a great benefit for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel! I love the convenience of being able to arrive at Orlando International Airport knowing that my "magic carpet" is waiting to take me to my Disney Resort Hotel! There is no need to take a carseat for your little one. Your 15-month-old will be able to sit on your lap. In fact, Disney's Magical Express does not permit carseats aboard the motor coaches. We traveled from the airport to our resort hotels several times with our three children and felt safe having them free of their carseats while riding Disney's Magical Express. Needless to say, the kids thought riding the motor coach without their carseats was their first "ride" at Walt Disney World!

    When we traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort with little ones, we always requested a portable crib for the resort hotel room. These are usually available on a first-come, first-served basis. Make your request when booking your vacation. If for some reason the resort doesn't have a crib available, then you can rent one from A Baby's Best Friend. This Orlando company is not owned or operated by the Walt Disney World Resort, but it is authorized to provide baby-related services for the resort hotels.

    Heidi, please come back to visit as you continue planning your vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort.
