    We will be visiting Disney World 2 weeks before my sons first birthday. What kind of perks are there for us celebrating his first birthday there; the best play areas and rides for my little one? Any tips for a first time mom at the park with an infant?

    Hi Lannette!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am so excited to hear you will be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth with your little mouseketeer for his first birthday.  What a magical vacation you will have.  Be sure to pick up a complimentary  'Happy Birthday' button for your son from any Guest Service location, it is sure to bring him lots of smiles and well wishes  his way on your vacation.    I hope you have a wonderful trip.

    Some of my most cherished memories are vacations we took with my children when they were infants and preschoolers.   The smiles on their faces as they met some of their favorite characters will live in my memory forever.  I hope you make unforgettable memories on your trip.   A great resource for you to explore is the Planning Guide for Parents of Preschoolers & Small Children.   This wonderful section of the Walt Disney World website offers age appropriate attractions, the best Disney Resort hotels for little ones as well as special vacation packages aimed specifically at families with small children.   I know it would be a great planning tool for you.  I also suggest you utilize the Baby Care Centers in each Theme Park.  These awesome havens for moms offers full size changing tables, high chairs to feed your little ones, an area for little ones to relax and watch t.v.  as well as a small shop selling any items you may need to buy for your infant.   It's really a lifesaver for moms on vacation.

    I hope this has helped.  Please wish your son a big happy birthday from all of us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  If you have any other questions please send them our way.
