    Hello, we are visiting Epicot and Animal Kingdom I’m 1 week. We are traveling with a 6 month old. Are there any tips/rules/regulations you can give us about visiting the park with an infant. What are the most family friendly places we should be aware abo

    Hi Tarin! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Oh boy, I am SO excited to hear that you are visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" with your infant! I get asked often if taking an infant to the Walt Disney World Resort is a good idea and my answer is always an enthusiastic "YES!" My little ones took their first Disney vacations at 6-months-old and 4-months-old and those trips are memories that stick with me to this day!

    First, you are welcome to bring in any food and drinks that you will need for your infant. Formula and baby food are just fine! Typically, you need to avoid bringing in glass containers, but small ones like baby food jars are permitted. I also highly recommend bringing a stroller with you or renting one in the theme parks ... not only for your kiddo to rest in, but also to help carry all of the stuff you have to bring with you! Diapers, snacks, sunscreen, clothes ... it is a lot!

    In both Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom you will find a Baby Care Center. Inside these spots there are changing tables, highchairs, essential items for sale, nursing rooms, and a seating area. They are air-conditioned which is great in the Florida heat!

    There are a few attractions in each theme park that you are visiting that have height requirements that your little one won't be able to ride. For these, you can consider using Rider Switch. Simply approach the attraction and ask a Cast Member to use Rider Switch. The first party to ride will enter the Standby line, while the second party receives a Rider Switch digital pass and waits with the baby. When the first party is finished, the second party will enter the FastPass+ line while the first party waits. This will help you avoid having to wait in the Standby line twice as you take turns and save a ton of time! But don't worry ... most attractions do not have height requirements and you can ride them together!

    I hope this helps a bit, Tarin! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have!
