    Can I use a wearable breast pump while walking around the park?

    Hello Amanda!

    I am so glad that you brought this question to us here at planDisney. As a nursing mother myself, helping other new mothers is honestly one of my favorite things to do. I always love to share tips about how to make sure you have the bare necessities so that us MamaBears can rest at ease!

    I’m happy to share with you that breast pumps are allowed in the parks. I can tell that you are eager to not miss a session while you’re enjoying the rides, restaurants, and attractions at the park, and I can assure you that your discrete, wearable pump will not be a problem. I also want to let you know that, although your pumping schedule may be frequent, there are places available for you to store your equipment, in case you need some relief from carrying your pump gear with you. Pumps can be stored at either First Aid, or at the Baby Centers.

    Amanda, ever since I started visiting the Disneyland Resort like Kanga with little Roo, the Baby Centers have truly become my favorite little oasis when I’m at the parks. Not only are they comfortably furnished and well air-conditioned, they have all the comforts of home so that our younglings can reset if they (or we) ever become overwhelmed. Located at the end of Main Street, U.S.A. in the Disneyland Park and across from The Bakery Tour at the Disney California Adventure Park, each center is equipped with private nursing areas, bottle warmers, and even potty-training toilets. PapaBears feel relieved too because there are toddler areas to rest and play, as well as the most plush changing stations at the resort. Baby Centers are the coziest place for freshening up younglings’ diapers!

    But I do need to forewarn you, Amanda: breastmilk cannot be stored at the Baby Centers or the First Aid, so you would need to keep it with you. I recommend bringing a small cooler (I have a soft-sided, collapsible one) but remember that loose or dry ice is not permitted through the security checkpoints. Last summer, my husband resourcefully packed frozen water bottles in our cooler to keep our homemade snacks fresh all day. The clever part was that when the bottles finally melted, we were left with chilled waters and sports drinks to enjoy after a long hot day! It’s also just a generally good idea to have a reusable bottle at all times so that you can use it at the frequent filling stations located throughout the resort. That’s my problem-free philosophy anyway!

    I hope I helped answer your question about wearable pumping at the Disneyland Resort, Amanda. I loved sharing these tips, so feel free to come on back and let me know if you have any other questions.
